Tokyo, Japan (Web Desk): Japanese scientists have invented unique ice-cream that doesn’t melt . Yes! Ice-cream that traditionally melts over while eating and creates a sticky mess but it does not melt anymore.
A website, phys.org, reported that the ice cream reportedly came about by mistake after a chef in Japan was asked to find a way to use strawberries grown in areas impacted by the earthquake and tsunami back in 2011—they wouldn’t grow in a normal shape, so customers wouldn’t buy them.
The chef tried to use the strawberries in ice-cream and he found that the creams were solidifying.
A team of scientists at Kanazawa University heard this they reached out and tested the strawberries, only to find it that a compound called polyphenol in the strawberries was responsible for solidifying the ice cream .
The compound was mixed with ice cream and it was found that it would prevent from melting.
According to the scientists , the product can last three hours at room temperature with hardly any melting. They also tested the ice cream by blowing hot air on it for five minutes using a hairdryer. It retained its shape.
