From candy bars and sandwiches to cones and cakes, thanks to its creamy texture, extruded ice cream can be produced in many different forms and shapes.
Top quality ice cream, known as extruded ice cream, is often stiffer and colder, with a creamier texture than moulded or filled ice cream. It’s typically extruded onto a tray using a time-elapse filler. With this technique, you can produce different shapes, like a funny face or a fruit slice, to make your product stand out.
Extrusion enables manufacturers to produce a wide range of popular, appealing ice cream products, including stick novelties, sandwiches, wafer cups, desserts, ball-top cones, candy bars, bite-size treats, logs and cakes. All products can also be decorated and coated.
One of the winning entries in our Ice Cream Challenge, where we asked consumers for their best ice cream-related ideas, was an ice cream made with Greek yoghurt, chia seeds, fruit and granola for breakfast on-the-go. The idea is not only on-trend from a health and flavour point of view, but also from a sensory one, as textures are becoming increasingly important.
