Topic - Gelato Mouthfeel problem
Posted: 10 May 2017 at 7:58pm By Admin
This is a low fat mix, around 6%. It has a low PAC value which means that at normal  freezer temperatures it will be hard to scoop. It is not particularly sweet either (POD value). If the MSNF is too high (lets ignore lactose sandiness issues since with modern stabilisers these rarely occur today) the excess protein interferes with fat agglomeration and creates a range of issues. Your MSNF is too high.

Someone has formulated this mix for economy purposes and has probably used maltodextrin and tapioca as fat replacers to give a richer taste.

Try reducing the MSNF by 1% and increasing the POD and PAC values. Look at the articles on the website to get you started. Ensure that you get the discharge temperature out of your freezer as low as you can and try and get air into your mix.
