Food news: Liquid nitrogen delicious

2014-10-19 15:00

South Africa just got its very first ice cream store that uses liquid nitrogen to make its wares.

It’s called N2IceCream Lab and is officially open for business at the Emporium shopping centre in Parklands, Cape Town.

Using liquid nitrogen might sound like a weird concept, but owner Marija Groenewald explains: “Liquid nitrogen is so cold and freezes so fast that it reduces the size of ice crystals that form ice cream. Smaller ice crystals create smoother ice cream.”

N2IceCream Lab’s employees are called “brr-isters” and they wear white lab coats and protective gloves to prepare the ice cream as the orders come in.

“We do not use emulsifiers, additives, preservatives or any other artificial ingredients,” says Groenewald.

We can’t wait to have a taste.
