Did you know?

When producing walnut ice cream and a consistent and homogenous amount of walnut bits are necessary for the manufacturing and filling process of walnut ice cream. A certain quantity of waste is produced during the initial procedure until the concentration reaches the desired level. There is no more need for the offcuts. The mass of the walnut ice cream and the pieces of walnut must be separated from one another in order for them to be used once more.

To achieve a very high level of hygienic protection, ice cream is produced industrially in closed systems. According to a recipe specified for each of the different varieties and flavors, the raw ingredients are balanced and premixed. The aforementioned results in the premix. The premix is broken down into small, fine components by the homogenizer under high pressure. As a result, the milk fat may be dispersed properly and the ice cream has a melt, that is creamy and smooth. After that, the ice cream mass is pasteurized. To stop undesired bacteria from surviving in the ice cream mix or from growing again later, it is quickly heated to 75 °C and then cooled down to 4 °C. To fully develop its aroma, the ice cream must then mature in refrigerator-safe containers. The ice cream is ultimately given its final composition in the freezer.
