Hello

I'm starting to make certified organic ice cream on a Jersey herd farm and wondered if you have any advice on avoiding stabilisers like carageenan, guar gum etc. And can we get away with just using organic soy lecithin as an emulsifier? We want the product to be as natural as is possible and avoid egg yolk apart from in one or two flavours.

Thanks in anticipation for any advice. Also any contacts for organic lecithin suppliers would be great.

Sorry for delay in approving post. Organic tapioca is readily available and makes a good stabilizer. However not quite as good for long term storage as gums. Carageenan use is interesting. Occasionally milk stability issues cause serum separation in melted ice cream. Very difficult to deal with. Carageenan can prevent this. Will try to PM you re lecithin.

Hi to you both

The main thing to remember is that you will only be using Stab/Emul at around .4-7% maximum of the liquid mix. These could therefore be none organic.

Thank you for replying. Could we get away with lecithin alone or do you need carageenan/gum as well if not using eggs?

Thank you, Gelato-Artisan.
Yes, I know that we could add them and still be certified organic but was just trying to find a possible alternative - or at least not use all 3 additives (lecithin, carrageenan & gum).
