There are many unique types of ice cubes, which have many different uses.
This week we will highlight the next 3 types of ice cubes:
Nugget Ice– A soft chewable ice, but is still hard enough to be dispensed without hand scooping, which has 80% ice to water ratio. The nugget ice is used for retail dispensing, typically used in juices and carbonated beverages.
Tubular Nugget Ice – A soft chewable texture with a cylinder shape, which has a 90% ice to water ratio. The tubular nugget ice is used for dispensing and cooling.
Crushed Ice – A rough chewable texture with rounded rough edges , which has a 100% ice to water ratio. Crushed ice is dice or half dice cube ice that is crushed/ground up into many smaller pieces, which is used for frozen ice treats and maximum cooling.
