Organic Ice-Cream Base

organic ice cream base

We’ve kept our recipe as simple as possible, so that chefs and artisanal ice-cream makers can apply their own artistry to creating unique and specialized ice creams.  Straus Family Creamery Organic Ice-Cream Base is an ingredient used by ice-cream makers and pastry chefs who want to produce their own flavors of organic ice cream in batch freezers. 

Making ice cream first requires the production of a basic pasteurized custard base, in which milk, cream, sugar, and egg yolks are heated together until the base reaches a specific temperature. Pasteurization of ice cream is required by the State of California for businesses selling ice-cream products to the public. State law also requires that an ice-cream making business become a state-certified pasteurizer. As an alternative to becoming a state-certified pasteurizer, ice-cream makers and shop owners can use Straus Organic Ice Cream Base.

Because Straus Organic Ice-Cream Base contains 14% fat and the highest-quality custard ingredients – just Organic Cream, Organic Milk, sweet-cream buttermilk, organic sugar and organic egg yolk s-- there is ample room for creativity in flavors, texture and add-ins.
