New Opportunity for the Ice Cream Industry to Make Premium Water Ice with a Refreshing Texture

DENMARK, Jan 2, 2012 – DuPont Nutrition & Health has created the first solution on the market to distribute fruit chunks evenly and securely in water ice and provide a first-class, thirst-quenching texture.

CREMODAN® FruitPro 10 Stabiliser System stands out as a brand new opportunity for ice cream manufacturers to process innovative new products on a standard water ice line.

No More Expensive Equipment
Cooling, refreshing and lower in calories than dairy-based ice cream, water ice is widely popular with consumers.  Until now, producing high-quality water ice with an even distribution of fruit, cereal or vegetable inclusions has required expensive equipment for adding the inclusions and freezing the water ice mix.

CREMODAN® FruitPro 10 not only enables premium water ice production on a standard line at an affordable cost, the stabiliser also maintains the refreshing mouthfeel of the final product – unlike conventional stabiliser systems for water ice. An additional bonus is the improvement in meltdown properties.

Accessible Innovation
“Fruit, cereal or vegetable pieces can be simply added to the water ice mix, and the stabiliser system does the rest,” said Finn Hjort Christensen, group manager, Ice Cream at DuPont Nutrition & Health.

“We believe our stabiliser system will pave the way to many exciting product launches. Innovation in line with market trends is suddenly much more accessible.”

Inspirational Concept
To demonstrate the point, DuPont has developed an inspirational water ice concept, including free-floating chunks of mango or strawberry.
