ice cream terminologies- Homogenization

Homogenization is the mechanical process of incorporating the natural fat globules into the liquids in milk to keep them blended. It changing the physical and chemical function of the milkfat globule membrane by increasing available surface area. This enables interactions with soluble or colloidally suspended proteins, stabilizers and emulsifiers during mix aging. Increasing mix whiteness and viscosity may occur.

Efficient homogenization is essential for the quality of ice cream. Homogenization reduces fat droplet size and creates a stable emulsion. A secondary, yet very important effect includes changing the physical and chemical function of the milkfat globule membrane by increasing available surface area. This enables interactions with soluble or colloidally suspended proteins, stabilizers and emulsifiers during mix aging. Increasing mix whiteness and viscosity may occur.
