Background of the Study
We chose this project is because it was interesting, not just interesting, but we also would know the advantages and disadvantages of this study. This could be also an alternative ice cream to those who can’t afford commercial ice cream. We wanted to find out what’s behind this processed water or boiled water of corn. Based on what I’ve read, boiling kills 100 percent of the dangerous pathogens in your drinking water. Experts disagree on how long to boil drinking water, as heating to temperatures below boiling also kills most bacteria and viruses. If you heat water to only 165 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes, you kill most organisms in the water. Corn is a Good Source of Fiber.
The word maize derives from the Spanish form of the indigenous Taíno word for the plant, maiz. It is known by other names around the world. Corn outside Canada and the United States means any cereal crop, its meaning understood to vary geographically to refer to the local staple. In Canada and the United States, "corn" primarily means maize; this usage started as a shortening of "Indian corn". "Indian corn" primarily means maize (the staple grain of indigenous Americans), but can refer more specifically to multicolored "flint corn" used for decoration. Outside Canada and the United States, the word corn often refers to maize in culinary contexts. The narrower meaning is usually indicated by some additional word, as in sweet corn, corn on the cob, popcorn, corn flakes, baby corn. Statement of the Problem
Specifically the study sought to answer the following questions: 1. Can the corn stuck be an ice cream?
2. How many hours or days would it take in making the corn stuck as ice cream? 3. What is the difference on the texture, color and odor of the commercial ice cream with the corn stuck as ice cream? Formulation of the Hypothesis
Null Hypotheses; There is no possibility to produce ice cream out of corn stuck. Alternative Hypotheses; There is possibility to produce ice cream out of corn stuck. Significance of the Study
This study could help the one who can’t afford to buy commercial ice cream because of its expensive price. In this study, you’ll hit two birds in just one stone, you could make an ice cream out of the corn stuck, also you had a cooked corn and besides I think this ice cream would taste great as a commercial ice cream. As early as today, we can help the society to survive the crisis from buying expensive deserts and thus, it will lead us in saving money.
Scope and Delimitation
The study was conducted on November 24, 2012 in our classmate’s house. We have finished this study almost 1 day and 6 hours. This study is applicable for the school year 2012-2013. The commercial ice cream was compared to the corn stuck as ice cream in terms of texture, color and odor.
Definition of Terms
Ice cream (derived from earlier iced cream or cream ice]) is a frozen dessert usually made from dairy products, such as milk and cream, and often combined with fruits or other ingredients and flavors. Boiling is the rapid vaporization of a liquid, which occurs when a liquid is heated to its boiling point, the temperature at which the vapor pressure of the liquid is equal to the pressure exerted on the liquid by the surrounding environmental pressure.
REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE
Southdreamz.com stated that corn, one of the most popular and versatile vegetables, is also a good source of several nutrients.
