What Ingredients Make Ice Cream Creamy?
The two main ingredients that provide the creamy texture to ice cream are milk fat and egg yolk. Both of these are high in fat and increase the fat content of the ice cream to result in a richer and creamier texture. Egg yolks also contain lecithin, which is an emulsifier and binds fat and water together to make a creamy emulsion.
