Amul Rajbhog Ice Cream – Detailed Review
After scanning the ingredient list, we were delighted to find Amul does not use any form of vegetable fat which makes this an ice cream in the true sense! The main ingredients used are milk solids, cashew pieces (7%), almond pieces (3.5%), honey, saffron, permitted emulsifier (E471), and stabilizers (E407, E466, E415, E412, E435). It also uses permitted synthetic food color and added flavors (cardamom, honey, and saffron).
The ice cream is offered in a plastic container which is secured with a tightly sealed lid.
We saw no ice crystals, as we opened the lid. Thumbs up! The primary color is dominated by saffron and we could see bits of almonds and cashews. Moreover, there were some crushed saffron strands too.
Super creamy. The texture of this Amul ice cream is rich, milky, and oh-so-creamy. The crushed nut bits add a bite which is just a subtle, moist crunch.
Taste, just like the texture was milky. The sweetness was apt. There were no rancid/stale flavors from the nuts, they were fresh.
The Rajbhog flavor is characterized by desirable flavors of saffron, cardamom, and milk- all sweetened. It is typically loaded with nuts and has a rich creaminess.
The characteristic milky Rajbhog flavor shines through in this ice cream. Additionally, the distinct sweetness of honey was mildly tasted. That said, the flavors of these aromatic spices were subtly present in this ice cream.
