    what are the possible ways to calculate thermal diffusivity, specific heat, melting rate and other thermal properties of ice cream that does not need any equipment?

    or Does anyone in here know any laboratory in the Philippines that measures the thermal properties of a specific food?

    Ice cream is not one specific mixture. It is a fairly broad class of multi component emulsion/colloid substances. At least 4 individual materials are necessary to get you to anywhere near an ice cream like substance.

    Good question. Everybody likes ice cream , but I haven't yet thought about its properties that make it frozen. :P Thank you.

    It's a real headache is you rush the test.
