Students create new low-calorie diet ice
Posted on: 1st April 2021
Chemistry students at Brockenhurst College have discovered how to make a substance that could revolutionise the hospitality industry – diet ice.
The group of A Level students made the breakthrough after putting normal full-fat ice through a series of processes to alter its molecular structure.
So far, both MJ’s restaurant and The Hard Brock Café have signed up to receive thousands of tons of diet ice over the next 25 years.
Lecturer April Foolish said: “As a lower calorie alternative to regular ice, this product will undoubtedly lead to a vast array of new opportunities for the drinks industry.
“I’m so proud of the students and I can’t wait to see what they’re going to come up with next,” she added.
