ColdSnap is a Keurig/Nespresso-style machine, but for ice cream and other frozen confections.
The machine uses a patented refrigeration technology to rapidly freeze shelf-stable food and beverage formulations in single-serve recyclable ColdSnap pods that do not require refrigeration or preparation.
The ColdSnap system features no plumbing, no set up, no preparation, no cartridges, no filters, and no cleaning is required.
The system sits on a counter tap and on-screen instructions direct the user to make the desired products. It can be used in the home or in a commercial setting.
The company said its ColdSnap freezing technology creates micro-sized ice crystals that are 40% smaller than store-bought products.
“ColdSnap ice cream is creamy with a smoother mouth-feel than ice cream that undertakes a deep freeze that is required when shipping in refrigerated trucks and kept frozen in the grocery store,” said Matt Fonte, president, Sigma Phase, Corp.
“Frozen yogurt made with the ColdSnap machine has a dense, velvety texture, and frozen cocktails have a silky smooth consistency that is virtually impossible to replicate in any home or bar. In short, ColdSnap makes a smoother, better tasting product.”
The company said its ColdSnap pods are shelf-stable, and are made from recyclable aluminum, and can be shipped at ambient temperature. It added that ColdSnap does not require refrigeration, and therefore can reduce carbon emissions associated with the making and distributing ice cream by 25% to 50%.
