WHITE MARSH, MD. (April 11, 2017) -- Seventeen local high school students with interests in science, culinary and marketing participated in the fifth annual Ice Cream University hosted by TIC Gums at the Texture Innovation Center in White Marsh, MD. The program is modeled after Cornell University’s Food Science 101 course, a requirement for incoming freshman of the College of Food Science. TIC Gums sponsored each student’s $500 program fee and provided home ice cream makers upon program completion.

The winning ice cream flavor, named Raspberry Tea-riffic, was created by Henry Byers of Aberdeen High School; Gavin Hope of Aberdeen High School; Naomi Karmel of Edgewood High School; Shaylyn Lewis of Aberdeen High School; and Meredith Miller of Edgewood High School. “We learned a lot about the process of making ice cream and food in general. It’s not just adding in all the ingredients you want at once. There are special steps to be sure you get the right flavor and texture,” said a team representative.
