Dr Michael Mullan owner of the ice cream mix calculator

Welcome to the Dairy Science and Food Technology ice-cream calculator subscription service. Currently there are 5-payment options,1 day's use for £15, 5-day's use for £25, 40-day's use for £50.00, 80-day's access for £70 and 365 day's access for £120 (prices at the 22nd July, 2016).  Go to the  ice cream mix calculator.

Users of the subscription service have access to enhanced ice cream calculator functionality! Users opting to support the site in this way can save each calculation, give it a unique name e.g. Egg yolk, CSS, stabiliser x mix  along with a description of the mix e.g. how well the mix performed in taste panels (figure 1).

Users can also amend their details e.g. change Email address and can reset their passwords.

Saved calculations can be viewed by  opening the saved calculations folder (figure 2). This lists all the saved calculations.  Each calculation can be opened, edited, renamed or duplicated and the changes saved for future use. This is a big improvement in convenience and could potentially save calculator users a lot of valuable time!
