ICE CREAM PASTES
Pastes are what flavor ice cream. They are about as thick as porrage, full of the real fruits and/or nuts and contain imported Italian flavors and aromas. The non-sugar flavors are made with at least two, up to four different natural sweeeteners, to give the exact sweetness and mouth feel of sugar. Pastes come in 4 L pails, which can make 16 tubs of fruit flavors or 26 tubs of nut flavors. Pastes are preserved with sorbic acid, a natural product, that makes them taste sour in the pail but they are sweet when added to ice cream. Pastes, once opened, DO NOT REQUIRE REFRIGERATION.
Toppings are pastes with pieces of fruit or nuts large enough to be easily seen. Once opened, THEY REQUIRE REFRIGERATION.
