Those who spent their childhood in Soviet times probably remember the wonderful taste of plombir ice cream. At that time, food industry enterprises constantly worked on improving the recipes of this product, which was ultimately produced according to strict standards and established GOSTs. One of the features in the process of its production was the use of only natural ingredients.
And although many of us associate plombir with the Soviet Union, this type of ice cream appeared much earlier. The history of plombir began in the nineteenth century in France, in the town of Plombier-les-Bains, from where this ice cream got its name. One confectioner from this town, soaked various fruits in cherry vodka and added to them a mixture of frozen eggs and cream. This was the moment the plombir ice cream was born. Since that moment, the recipes for plombir have changed a lot.
Plombir is characterized by a high content of fat and sugar (about 15%). The energy value of the product is: proteins: 3.7 g (~ 15 kcal) fats: 15 g (~ 135 kcal), carbohydrates: 20.4 g (~ 82 kcal).
The unforgettable taste of this ice cream is caused by its gentle consistency and an excellent proportion of fat and sugar. Depending on the amount of milk fat, we can distinguish:
• classic plombir - 12-13%;
• fat plombir - 15-20%.
In some cases, in order to enrich its flavor, several producers add butter to this ice cream and due to the fact that plombir has a high fat content it does not contain any ice.
