Dearest Naked Science Peeps Of Ice Cream Luffing Fun,Happy Tuesday.As a sheepy I of course luff ice cream !...hmmmmm....it's well delish.....The Italians do it best...!!Look , here's some..[attachment=9299]Some Ice Cream In Florence YesterdayHaving recenlty asked a temperature related question I got to thinking that would there be any calorific difference if I consumned two identical tubs of ice cream but there was a big difference in temperature say -10 C and +3c ?I am thinking that the colder the ice cream the more the body will burn energy to warm it and this it will be less fattening !...whajafink ?hugsNeilIce Cream Eaterxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
In theory, that's true. But it's still fattening.
I used to do a bit of winter hillwalking and scrambling in my younger days, usually tree-day trips and camping out overnight, and just eating and drinking cold stuff wasn't a good idea as it did seem to drain appreciable energy from our bodies. This was in sub-zero temperatures though, so the temperature gradient and the rate at which we lost heat was more critical.
Hummmmm..that is interesting.. I have never thought of that before! I love ice cream so it doesn't matter.. I have to be careful with it.... but would be nice to know if we turned up the freezer would it be a tad less fattening? I wonder how one might test that theory? Neil is always up for an empirical study what can he do to test it?
