Hi Guys,

 

I am new in an ice cream plant and I would like to understand some of the quality control parameters to look for during ice cream manufacture. I would also aapreciate if one could share a typical quality assurance batch card or template for an HTST ice cream process.

 

Regards,

 

Agwanda

Hi Simon, 

 

Im referring to the Tony recomendation on controlling the quality in processing the ice cream. I wonder what method or equipment that most suitable to check the viscosity... I used to work with a laboratory where there were Brokfield, Bostwick and Zahn Cup. 

 

And what method is checking the total solid, butter fat, and phosphate? Im totally blur. As today is my 3rd day here. 

 

Im hoping to find any article about the ice cream making especially the functional of every step. 

 

Thanks, 

 

Cahaya
