Ice Cream with Memories

Can Protein-enriched ice cream increase energy and protein intake and at the same time evoke positive emotions? A feasibility study among hospitalized elderly people.

Ice creame

In the project "Ice with Memories", the goal is to develop a protein-enriched chocolate ice cream for small-eating patients, where the protein content constitutes a minimum of 12% of the total energy content.

The final protein-enriched ice cream will differ from current protein-enriched ice cream with a look, taste and texture like a normal chocolate stick ice cream.

The aim is to investigate:

  • If the protein-enriched ice cream can increase protein- and energy intake without substituting other meals/snacks
  • If the protein-enriched ice cream can evoke positive emotions
