Ice cream is a complex colloidal system, usually formed by structural compounds viz., air bubbles, fat, and ice crystals which are dispersed in a matrix consisting of a solution of sugars, proteins, stabilizers, emulsifiers, dyes, and scents. This paper presents system dynamics model based on the Vensim tool and this model contains equations derived for diabetic and non-diabetic patients and common health conscious people as well. Very effectual results have been obtained from the derived model suggesting best suitable ice cream for mapping diabetes patients, which is different from health conscious people and normal crowd.
