How much does a scoop of ice cream weigh?

In your opinion, how much does a scoop of artisanal ice cream weigh? Is it larger than a serving sold in supermarkets?
The question may seem simple, but the answer can vary significantly depending on various factors such as the type of ice cream, density, and the size of the scoop used. However, generally speaking, a standard scoop of ice cream weighs between 60 and 100 grams. 


Factors influencing the weight:

Type of ice cream: Artisanal ice cream, for example, can be heavier than industrial ice cream due to its higher density. Industrial ice cream often contains more air, making it lighter.

Density: The density of ice cream varies depending on the ingredients used. Ice cream made with cream or with many solids (such as fruit or chocolate) will be heavier compared to sorbet or lighter ice cream.

Scoop size: Ice cream scoops come in different sizes, usually measured by volume. A standard scoop of ice cream can hold about 50-70 ml, which can translate to a weight ranging from 60 to 100 grams depending on density.

Accurate measurement:

For a precise measurement, the best solution is to weigh the scoop of ice cream on a kitchen scale. However, for a quick estimate, a medium-sized scoop weighs approximately 80 grams.
