Frequently Asked Questions

What are the ice cream ingredients?

All flavors of Hansen's ice cream include skim milk, cream, sugar, egg yolks, vanilla, locust bean gum, guar gum and dextrose. Other flavorings, colorings and candy pieces are also added to individual flavors.


Why do you use locust bean gum and guar gum in your ice cream?

Locust bean gum is a natural food additive that comes from the carob seeds of the carob tree. It is used as a stabilizing agent in ice cream to prevent ice crystals from forming during temperature fluctuations. Guar gum helps thicken and maintain homogeneity of texture. It keeps thinner ingredients combined uniformly with thicker ingredients.
