IDFA Ice Cream Technology Conference Recap
Posted by Rebekah Wicke on 3/14/17
Last week, members of the Fuchs team attended the International Dairy Foods Association’s Ice Cream Technology Conference in Henderson, Nevada, where our Moroccan Spiced Chocolate Ice Cream placed 6th overall in the Innovative Ice Cream Flavor Competition.
The Moroccan Spiced Chocolate Ice Cream featured Ras el Hanout, a Moroccan spice blend which was featured in our Make It Mediterranean Collection in 2016. Ras el Hanout is a favorite here at Fuchs, so it was just a matter of time before we tried it in ice cream!
Associate Food Scientist Brian Swing is responsible for developing this yummy ice cream flavor.
“It has the perfect balance of sweetness and spiciness, which pairs perfectly with chocolate. The flavor itself is reminiscent of a gingersnap,” Swing explains.
The Moroccan Spiced Chocolate isn’t our only ice cream flavor; Fuchs has a wide range of ice cream flavor systems, including Orange Cardamom, Masala Chai, Mole, Carrot Cake, Malted Stout, Coconut Curry, and French Toast.
In addition to participating in the ice cream contest, Swing and other members of the Fuchs team attended various information sessions, gaining further insight into dairy trends and the challenges facing the dairy industry.
