Higher quality product is sold in the typical rectangular container (above) that can be in plastic or in stainless steel. The average wholesale price of quality gelato and ice cream is between 190 and 350 per kilogram baht also depending on the flavors. As a factory is more easy and practical to sale in the plastic container as it can be easily inserted in the showcase and start to sale directly. Our containers are in white food grade plastic. We can also prepare the ice cream that looks like a mountain to show to the customer for better sale results.

Production of ice cream. We have many flavors available
each of one created with prime choice of ingredients, fresh milk, cream,
whipping cream and low fat fruit.
The importance of a correct balance in the ice cream recipe. Very important is maintain the correct proportion of ingredients to avoid obtaining a sandy gelato or maybe a sticky or gummy ice cream or a too strong or too easy to melt product.
To create a correct proportion of ingredients we have to do a first division in solid and liquid ingredients. The total of all solid components of the recipe must be between 30% and 40% (to be more precise 32% and 42%) for gelato with milk and 30/35% in the fruit ice cream or sherbet. In this balancing process you have to consider that also the solids are also hidden in the liquid, for example the milk can contain till 21% of solid in his liquid, or what we consider apparently liquid. Moreover the total solid also have to be divided in more than one categories: solid from fat, solid from sugars, solid from milk (that are a mix of sugars like lactose and fats like cream) and other solids. We create these small list to help you out.
Milk ice cream
- Solid amount from sugars: from 15% till 23%
- Solid from fat: from 6% to 11%
- Solid from milk (not fat): from 7% to 11%
- Solid from other sources: from 1% till 2%
- Total solid sum = 29% - 47%
Fruit ice cream also called sorbetto or sherbet or sorbet with water instead of milk
- Solid amount from sugars: from 26% till 30%
- Solid from fat: from 0% (low fat as fruit contains very low or nothing fat) or fat free
- Solid from milk (not fat): 0%
- Solid from other sources: maximum 5%
- Total solid sum = 26% - 30.5%
Please note again: Stabilizers are not fat solid if not differently declared from the manufacturing label.Now, how do I know the correct amount of sugars and fats contained in my ingredients? You can find many tables on internet, just Google "tabella quantita solidi gelato" but the results are in Italian... we provide here a basic table for you: solid and fat table.
And note... All our recipes are done following these basic lines:
- Prepare all the ingredient in a comfortable and big table or working space well cleaned
- Mix the solid with liquid ingredients with a powerful mixer. To know if you have to mix in an hot or cold liquid environment consult the stabilizer label
- Drop the content in the pasteurizer for the complete cycle
- From the pasteurizer drop in the ice cream machine or batch freezer and eventually add latest ingredients
- Then put the gelato in the pans or cups and put it in the shock freezer for 30 minutes or in the freezer for 8 hours

Important note:there is also another very important ingredient for ice cream that is often underestimate: the air. yes, the air is a basic component of the gelato and even more important in ice cream. While using the ice cream machine the air is incorporate in the other ingredients and will stay in the gelato till it will melt. During a standard process of creating Italian gelato with machine even small, usually we get 20% of air in the total final volume. In ice cream we can arrive to have a 50% of air in the total volume. This process (air incorporation) is called overrun and can reach the 100% in ice cream. All our wholesale gelato still has 20% overrun
