Guar and locust bean gums were combined with sucrose, 36 DE corn syrup and/or 42 high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) in a minimum fat (10%) ice cream formulation. A total of 27 combinations were evaluated for sweetness, iciness, chewiness and vanilla intensity. Replacing 50% of the sucrose with 42 HFCS did not significantly affect sweetness or vanilla intensity. Chewiness was enhanced when high corn syrup levels were combined with a high guar to locust bean gum ratio. Storage study data showed that ice creams containing high levels of HFCS became objectionably icy earlier than ice creams containing low levels or no HFCS. With a high guar to locust bean gum ratio ice creams became both detectably and objectionably icy sooner than if a low ratio of these gums was used.
