The Dairy Science and Food Technology ice cream mix calculator uses linear programming to solve the mix calculations and provides a “proof of calculation” showing that the mass of the mix sums to the correct value and all the components e.g. fat also sum to the correct value. Since there is only one unique solution for each calculation you can quickly validate your results by checking the sums figures.
While the calculator is fairly simple to use there is a help facility, please see the ? below. Further information on ice cream, and other ice cream related calculators, is also available.
