Stabilizers and Emulsifiers

  • W. S. Arbuckle


In 1915 Frandsen used the word stabilizer to designate a group of substances that at that time were generally referred to as holders, colloids, binders, and fillers (Frandsen and Markham 1915). The primary purposes of using stabilizers in ice cream are to produce smoothness in body and texture, to retard or reduce ice crystal growth during storage, and to provide uniformity of product and resistance to melting. Stabilizers function through their ability either to form gel structures in water or to combine with water as water of hydration.
