Ice cream is primarily composed of multiple ingredients, and each has different properties which are then indirectly transmitted in what we are going to eat. The raw materials used for ice cream are: water, milk, sugars, proteins, fats, flavors, neutrals and air.

There are water-based ice creams, although it often derives directly from milk. In the first case, the water is chosen on the basis of various elements, such as: hardness, fixed residue, acidity, odor, flavor and temperature. In milk instead, we will inevitably find lactose, then the first fats and proteins. Then, sugar, which in itself contains sugars other than lactose, such as sucrose, glucose, glucose and fructose syrups. Then the fats, those used to make an ice cream, are generally animals, such as cream or butter, or even vegetable oils. Inside, we will also find proteins, of animal or vegetable origins, generally from milk or even egg whites. Furthermore, in the product, we will find aromas and so-called neutrals: additives divided into emulsifiers and thickeners. Finally there is air, which is to be considered an ingredient, it serves to make it soft and not too cold.

Between nutritional properties, to be taken into consideration, those of milk: calcium, phosphorus and Vitamins A, B1 and B2; mineral salts, if we ate fruit ice cream, and again: omega-3, omega-6. Ice cream somehow makes you fat, always, but how much, depends on the type. The least caloric of all is generally to be considered the fruit one, with the strawberry one ranging from 110 to 120 Kcal, and the lemon one instead from 120 to 130. Much heavier, those with cream or chocolate, respectively carriers of 180/190 Kcal and 180/200 Kcal.
