Objective quantification of the meltdown behaviour ("meltdown tests") of ice cream is the conventional application of the MDA.
Determining the meltdown behaviour of ice cream through a combination of image analysis and conventional weight analysis was the driving force for developing the Meltdown Analyser.
Movie "Meltdown of Strawberry Ice Cream" shows an ice cream sample exposed to a temperature of 20° Celsius for 180 minutes. The ice cream exhibits good shape retention as well as high meltdown resistance.
