Similar to the variegate technology, Balchem® Ingredient Solutions can alter the viscosity and rheological properties to provide lower solid syrup type systems. These products can be utilized in many applications including shakes, smoothies, or even used as a frozen dessert topping.

Solid Packs

Textured and Water Based Variegates

A wide range of variegate systems are also available that deliver unique flavor profiles, versatility in viscosity, and outstanding texture for all types of ice cream applications.

Flavor Bases

Balchem® Ingredient Solutions offers a wide range of highly concentrated flavor base systems that are applied into ice cream mixes to deliver outstanding flavor intensity and appeal.

Liquid Chip

Kalva Ice Cream Coatings

We offer fat-based liquid chip systems for use in ice cream and frozen dessert systems. The liquid chip technology is solid at room temperature, but when heated it turns into a fluid consistency that can be injected into an ice cream mix. When the liquid chip hits the cold temperature, it hardens, breaks, and disperses throughout the ice cream resulting in a speckled appearance and crunchy texture. In addition, as an alternative to standard chips or inclusions, liquid chip tends to be more cost effective.
