  • Patent number: 10292405
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for producing frozen confectionery products. In particular, the invention is concerned with a method which contributes to the improvement of textural and sensorial attributes of the confections obtained thereof, in particular of products based on lower fat formulations. The method includes the use of controlled heat (between 90° C. and 140° C. for 5 seconds to 30 minutes) on an acidified ice confection mix (pH between 5.6 and 6.5) to at least partially form a coagulated protein system including casein whey protein. Such a protein system is used according to the invention in frozen confection prepared by conventional freezing alone or combined with low temperature freezing wherein it improves the microstructure and stability on frozen products.

  • Patent number: 9232811
    Abstract: A process for preparing aerated ice confection particles by manufacturing an aerated ice confection in a mass; further freezing the mass cryogenically to a temperature close to the glass transition temperature (Tg) of the aerated ice confection to form a aerated frozen mass, and comminuting the frozen mass to aerated ice confection particles with a high surface area to volume ratio. These particles can be used for a variety of purposes but preferably are used for forming frozen ice drinks in a simple, rapid and convenient manner. This is particularly useful when a single serving of such drinks is desired as no special equipment to make the drink is required. The invention also relates to packaging for the aerated ice confection particles and methods of making frozen ice drinks from the aerated ice confection particles.
