Ice cream is one of the most loved summer treats. An interesting detail is that ice cream was invented long before the invention of the refrigerator. As early as three thousand years ago, rich Chinese received sweet juice from fresh fruits mixed with snow and ice directly into their homes.
In fact, the ice temptation arrived in Europe thanks to the famous Venetian traveler Marco Polo, who first brought the recipe for chilled sorbet from China to Italy. Gradually, the passion for ice cream spread to Austria, Italy, France, etc.
Nowadays you will hardly find a person who does not like ice cream. Ice cream is especially popular during the summer heat, but unfortunately it melts extremely quickly then.
Ice cream is stored at quite low temperatures in order to preserve not only its appearance, but also its nutritional qualities. Under no circumstances should you store ice cream at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
The optimal temperature limits in which it should be stored vary from -18 to -23°C. An exception is allowed for the storage of ice creams sold in ice cream showcases, where the operating temperatures of the facilities range from -12 to -20°C depending on the ambient temperature.
Even in a refrigerated display case, the ice cream must be protected from direct sunlight. Interesting and easy ideas for making egg-free ice cream, sugar-free ice cream or healthy ice cream can be found on our page.
