Soft Ice Cream or Soft Ice Cream, is a type of ice cream with a lighter texture than normal ice cream, and is served at a higher temperature, making it easier to appreciate its flavor and creamy texture when taste it Since the temperature is not as cold as in traditional ice creams, it is not necessary to add as much sugar to perceive its sweet taste.
In addition, soft ice cream is an ice cream with less fat, it can have between 7 and 12% less fat than normal ice cream, so its energy intake is reduced both by the lower amount of sugar and fat. To this we must add that its form of service makes this refreshing sweet, a fairly airy ice cream, but it is not possible to generalize about the percentage of fats, sugars or air that is introduced into soft ice cream, each manufacturer has its own formulas.
We discovered soft ice cream not many years ago, perhaps the international fast food chains were the ones who introduced it to our market, as we know, this type of ice cream began to be marketed in 1938.

It tells the story of this company that is found in more than 20 countries, emerged from a single product, and from a small store in Illinois, from the new semi-frozen dairy dessert that they created and that thanks to it, an industry has been formed fast food restaurant service.

This ice cream is served with a dispensing machine, thus achieving (among other things, such as the milkshake) a very striking presentation, whether in a glass, tub or cone.
It usually ends with some caramelized nuts, chocolate balls, fresh fruit, syrups or caramel syrups, chocolate, strawberry... all this enriches an ice cream that, although it comes in different flavors, the most common is cream, followed by vanilla, chocolate, stracciatella, strawberry soft ice cream….
