It was devised by an NGO called Salvamamme, which is a system in which a purchaser who agrees with the purpose pays two charges. Same countryNaplesIt is said to have originatedCafe Sospezo(Prepaid for others' coffee)[7][8].

The consumption of ice cream by country varies depending on the statistical body and method, but according to a survey by Euromonitor, the country with the highest annual consumption per capita isAustraliaIs 19.3 liters of[9].

Spread in Japan

"AisukurinIt was a very expensive item, and the price for a single person was 2 minutes (current value is about 8000 yen). The raw material is raw milk,sugar,egg yolkIt is very simple, and this is currently "custardIt is also called "ice". According to the "Yokohama History Magazine," it was in the red in the 2st year of the Meiji era and was temporarily closed.GuardianIseyama Emperor Grand ShrineIt was said that the festival was reopened at the time of the founding festival, and due to the bustling of the festival and the sunshine in the early summer, "it was extremely prosperous and the failure of the previous year was recovered". It is "Ice Cream Day"May 5Is generally said to be the first day to manufacture and sell ice cream in Japan, but there is no such description in the "Yokohama History" (date itself is the Japan Ice Cream Association1965 (ShowaIt is a formal one established in 40 years).Dejima MatsuzoEmperor Meiji"Aisukurin" is being donated to.

Place of origin

Ice creamPlace of originas,Dairy products,Sugar,grease,Stabilizer,emulsifier,spicesIs used.

Dairy products

Dairy products are roughly dividedMilk fatCalled the source,fatSources other than, are classified as those that include both. As a source of milk fat, fresh cream orUnsalted butterThere is. Unsalted butter is cheaper,fermentationThe odor can be a drawback. As a source of milk solids other than fat,Skimmed milk powderI have a hurt. These too can suffer from their characteristic odor. Including bothmilk,Concentrated milk, There is.In addition, for the purpose of manipulating the fat content, the milk fat separated during the preparation of skim milk powder may be added.Usually, "milk" ismilkBut rarelyGoat,sheepThere are some types of milk, so it is a misunderstanding to interpret it as milk.

The milk fat content and the volume ratio have a great effect on the properties of the finished ice cream.If the milk fat content is high, the texture will be smooth, but if it is too high, it will be difficult to contain air and it will be hard.Non-fat milk solids are milkprotein,lactose,mineralAnd so on. To tasteRichTo make it easier to contain air, but if too much is added lactoseCrystallizationThen it has a rough texture.


Add sugar to sweeten the ice cream. Ice cream tastes cold, so it is less sweet. So for the ice cream mixSucroseIf so, add it at a fairly high ratio of around 15%. Other than sucroseGlucose,Isomerized sugar,SyrupEtc. are used. The flavor of ice cream changes depending on its sweetness and physical properties. For example, glucose has the effect of providing a refreshing feeling. Sugar other than starch syrupFreezing point depressionPrevents ice cream mix from freezing. This has the effect of strengthening the taste of milk, but it is important to adjust the amount because the ice cream tends to melt.


It is used to supplement ice milk and lacto ice with fat. In addition, for products that reduce raw material costs and are conscious of health,Vegetable oilIs used (Ice cream is prohibited except for milk fat). This is an oil and fat that is solid at around room temperature like a milk fat content and becomes a liquid at a temperature around body temperature. In addition, it is necessary that the oil/fat itself does not have a peculiar odor. Vegetable oils that meet these conditionsCoconut hardened oil,Palm oil,Cottonseed oilAnd so on.PolyphenolAn ice cream that does not lose its shape even at room temperature has been developed by using the technology that prevents the separation of water and fats.[12].


For solid milk protein, use ice cream when frozengelIt has the function of converting and retaining air to keep ice crystals fine.However, this function cannot be expected with ice milk or lacto ice, which has a low milk solid content.In addition, if the temperature fluctuates during the transportation or storage of ice cream, some ice crystals will melt and refreeze, causing the ice crystals to grow and give a hard texture (heat shock). ).Stabilizers are used to prevent this.In the old daysStarch,gelatinWas used, but nowPectin,Sodium alginate,Gum arabicAlso used.Haagen-DazsIs not used in principle, so be careful when handling.
Since milk solids have an effect as an emulsifier to some extent, it is possible to make a uniform ice cream without adding an emulsifier especially in a large amount of ice cream. However, it is necessary to add an emulsifier because ice milk or lacto ice having a low milk solid content is insufficient.
However, an emulsifier may be added to ice cream. It is said that the function of the emulsifier in this ice cream is different from the normally expected surface-active effect, and on the contrary, it is to appropriately destroy the emulsification at the time of freezing so that the oil droplets of milk fat grow large. This makes the ice cream texture less watery.Glycerin fatty acid ester,Sucrose fatty acid ester,lecithinEtc. are used.
Due to the trend of the time when natural materials were sought, these additives often came from food.
Ice cream is given a flavor (flavor) that matches the taste of milk.vanilla,チ ョ コ レ ー ト,strawberryThree kinds offlavorWas the main, but now otherfruitAndMatcha,coffeeThe number of products with the flavor of favorite beverages such as is increasing. Milk flavors are also used in ice milk and lacto ice to supplement the taste of milk.

Manufacturing method

Ice cream manufacturingMixing of raw materials, emulsification, sterilization, cooling, aging, freezing, hardeningConsists of.

Mixing raw materials
Mix the ingredients and completely dissolve to make an ice cream mix. It is performed by heating around 60℃.
Finely crush the oil droplets in the ice cream mix to a uniform state. Usually, emulsification is performed twice. The first emulsification is performed at high pressure, and the diameter of the oil droplets is reduced to 2 µm or less. At this point some oil droplets are stuck together. The second emulsification is carried out at low pressure and the oil droplets are broken up and dispersed.
Besides sterilizing the bacteria in the ice cream mix, it also has the function of deactivating the enzymes contained in the milk ingredients.酵素This is because the oil and fat will be decomposed and odor will be emitted if the activity of is left. Industrially, since batch sterilization performed in a tank takes time to cool and deterioration of quality is likely to occur, a continuous flow type high temperature instantaneous sterilization method is used.
Immediately after sterilization, the ice cream mix is ​​refrigerated and stored for a while. During storage, the emulsifier is sufficiently adsorbed on the surface of the oil droplet, and the fat in the oil droplet is solidified. This affects the retention of air during freezing.
Introduce ice cream mix and air into the freezer, and quickly cool it to a temperature of about -2 to -9°C and freeze it. By freezing rapidly with vigorous stirring, air is frozen while being trapped in the ice cream as air bubbles, and the texture unique to ice cream is obtained. The ratio of the volume of air taken in to the volume of ice cream mix is ​​called overrun. A suitable overrun depends on the composition of the ice cream mix, but if it is too low, the texture becomes too hard and too cold, and if too much, it becomes dull. The faster the freezing speed, the finer the ice crystals and the smoother the texture of ice cream. By this freezing, about 50-80% of the water content in the ice cream is frozen. The soft serve ice cream was prepared by taking out ice cream at this point.
Fill the container with ice cream from the freezer, cool it to below -20°C, and freeze most of the remaining water. This is the freezing temperature of the freezercrystalThis is because the melting and growth of ice gradually cause the ice crystals to coalesce to give a rough texture, and the bubbles coalesce to become non-uniform.

In addition, a series of stepsLiquid nitrogenThere is also a method of cooking in a short time using[13].

Classification by ingredient standard

Ice cream is classified according to the ingredient standard[4].


Ice creams and frozen desserts in Japan are "Ministerial Ordinance on Standards of Ingredients for Milk and Dairy Products(Ordinance of the Ministry of Milk, etc.) and "Fair competition agreement regarding the display of ice cream and frozen desserts"[14] Are classified by. The following ice creams are classified as dairy products by the Ordinance of the Ministry of Milk, etc.

Classification of ice creams and frozen desserts in Japan
Ice creamice creamMilk solids of 15.0% or more by weight, of which milk fat is 8.0% or moreConcentrated milkOr useRaw milkBased onFresh creamTo mix or match the classification of "ice cream"Milk fatMay be adjusted.
Ice milkMilk solids of 10.0% or more by weight, of which milk fat is 3.0% or more
Lacto iceWeight percentage of milk solids of 3.0% or moreWhat is lactoLatinMeans "milk".It has less milk solids than ice milk and gives the flavor of ice cream.Vegetable oilIn the case of a product supplemented with fat by mixingcalorieCan be higher than ice cream or ice milk.
Frozen dessertFrozen sugar solution or a liquid obtained by mixing it with other foods, or crushed edible ice, mixed with sugar solution or other foods and re-frozen, which is to be served in frozen formshaved iceSuch. The distinction from ice cream is due to the ratio of the ingredients,sherbet,PopsicleEven if dairy products are used as raw materials, etc., they are classified as frozen desserts depending on the ratio.

* BothFood Sanitation ActIt is said that it must comply with the standards based on.

It should be noted that from many years of research, the temperature of ice creamBelow freezingIt is known that the original state hardly changes at 25°C or lower,Japan Ice Cream AssociationRecommends that you store ice cream in a factory freezer or commercial freezer for a long time at 25°C below freezing, and at least 18°C ​​below freezing until you store it at a retail store and store it at home.[15].. It is premised that the product is stored below 18°C ​​below freezing point, and if it is stored at an appropriate temperature, the quality change is extremely small, but if it is not properly controlled, it will deteriorate and will not return to its original state. Management is important. Therefore, in JapanExpiration Soon,Expiration dateIs not obligatory[16].

米 国

US Food and Drug AdministrationAccording to the rules of ice cream, milk solid content is 20% or more,Milk fatIt is said to include 10% or more per minute. Milk fat 6% or more,protein2.7% or moreMerolinIt is called (Mellorine). Previously, ice milk was classified as having less milk solids and milk fat than ice cream, but it is now abolished.

Classification by product type

Ice cream is classified as follows depending on the product type[4].

カ ッ プ
Ice cream cups are roughly divided into paper and resin, and are sealed with lids and stickers.[4].
Some stick type ice cream sticks are made of wood or resin.[17].. The method of making stick type ice cream is divided into mold type and extruded type.[17].
Monaca (Ice Monaca)
In the middleUsing dough (monaca skin) as an edible container[17].
Ice cream cone
Can eatconeThe shape of the saucerIce cream cone(Ice cream cone) or simply cone. In Japanese, the katakana notation is the same, so it is often mistaken, but the name corn comes from the shape, and the raw material iscornNot (corn)Wheat flourIs. CurrentlyFour cornersCone-shaped, smalltartSome of them have a dough-like shape, and a container with an open top made of wheat flour is generally called a corn, including such a non-conical one. There is also a waffle cone made by baking the waffle dough hard.
The inventor of the corn is unknown. The first bibliography about this isMrs. AB Marshall's Cookery Book(1888). Marshall is known as a person who has made various innovations in the ice cream manufacturing method, and there is also the possibility of her invention. This cup is1904 OfSt. Louis World's FairUsed by the ice cream seller of, it spread all over the world at once.
At ice cream specialty stores and the like, a cone stand is used to store the cone at the time of sale, and at the time of sale, a cone-shaped paper (sleeve) may be attached to the lower end of the cone. In addition, caps made from baked flour dough may be used as accents in soft ice cream.

Classification by sales form

Ice cream has the following sales forms[17].

Single pack

What is sold in units of one is called a single pack[17].convenience storeIce cream packaged in single servings is sold at stores and supermarkets. The form of the product is cup ice in a paper or plastic cup, potion ice that is sealed and packed in a plastic container so that each dish can be easily taken out, ice cream in a plastic container (pouch container), It takes the form of an ice bar with ice cream on a stick such as wood.


A multi-pack is a set of slightly smaller ice creams.[17].. It is sold in the form of individual packs of individually packed ice cream (multi-ice, family pack, boxed ice).

Home type

Home type is a large container or cake type that is placed on a plate or cut into pieces.[17].

supermarket,convenience storeSells ice cream (bulk ice) in large round or square plastic or paper containers. A few liters of ice cream is filled in a container, and it is eaten separately from the container. To a representative brand,Haagen-Dazs,Lady bodenand so on.

For business

A large container filled with about 2-10 liters of ice cream for restaurants, fast food restaurants, hotels, coffee shops, etc.[17].

Restaurant industry

At coffee shopsvanillaSometimes there is only ice cream, but some restaurants also offer desserts that are a combination of ice cream platters and other foods such as fruits. It is common for these restaurants to serve ice cream on some plate or bowl.

All stores

There are stores that specialize in ice cream, and such stores are often national, international, or wide-area chain stores. To the representativeBaskin Robbins(The brand in Japan is "XNUMX Ice Cream"),Haagen-Dazs, Hobsons,Blue sealand so on. These stores offer a wide variety of flavors of ice cream,corn,waffle, A paper cup or the like is used. These ice creams can be taken home as well as eaten in the store.

Below are the main ice cream parlors.
