Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0033665A1] A slush-type consumable product is made by dissolving gas such as carbon dioxide in an aqueous liquid so as to pressurise it to a predetermined pressure at which it has a lowered freezing point. The pressurised aqueous liquid is cooled to its lowered freezing point so as to generate a first quantity of ice particles dispersed in the liquid. The product is dispensed through a tap so as to relieve the pressure in the aqueous liquid. This results in the production of a slush-type product having a greater quantity of ice particles substantially uniformly dispersed therein.
