Many of the very best things in life have been enhanced by scientific discoveries, as luxury brands recruit white-suited scientists to help define the way we think and determine what we like to buy. From the color of our coats to the fabric on our sofa’s, there is always a lot more going on behind the scenes than you would think.
The same applies to what we eat. Processed and modified foods have all had more than just a helping hand from a scientist or two along the way. Sometimes, this may be considered a bad thing, but in the case of our creamy and delicious nitrogen ice cream, the science behind our desserts make for some of the most mouthwatering flavors you have ever tasted.
Hold on to your hats, ‘cos here comes the science bit…
The idea of using liquid nitrogen to make something edible may sound gross, but actually, it is the rapid freezing process that makes our ice cream so darn delicious.
At an ever so chilly -321, the liquid nitrogen quickly becomes a gas when it is released into the air. Pumping it into special mixers with the base ingredients for your sweet treat makes for ice cream that freezes immediately with virtually no ice crystals, making for a rich and creamy ice cream texture.
What Is Liquid Nitrogen?
Liquid nitrogen is essentially the gas nitrogen (N2), that has been cooled to such a low temperature (-196°c) that it becomes a liquid. Most of the air we breathe is nitrogen with 20% being oxygen and the remaining 2% a mixture of other gases. Liquid nitrogen is -320°F or -196°C i.e. really, really cold, and it is particularly useful for freezing foods because it is completely odorless, colorless, and tasteless.
How Can You Use It to Make Ice Cream?
The creation of top-class ice cream has evolved over the years. Nitrogen Ice Cream is the latest way to deliver freshly frozen, beautifully smooth, ice cream desserts that come in a huge variety of flavors and combinations.
By using the awesome power of the super cold liquid nitrogen, you can create amazing ice cream in a matter of minutes. The liquid nitrogen causes the fat and the water particles to stay very small, giving the ice cream an out of this world creamy consistency. When milk ice cream is made, it loses some of its density as ice crystals develop during the freezing process. The faster you are able to freeze your ingredients, the heavier they become making the finished product really, really creamy.
