What is nugget ice?

Nugget ice gets its unique texture from the way it is produced. Our nugget ice makers compress flakes of ice producing a higher density but softer texture. The finished product also has a higher water to ice content compared to traditional ice. However, because nugget ice also has a slower melt rate, it will not water down your drink.

The versatility of nugget ice means it has become extremely popular in bars and restaurants. It is perfect for making frozen drinks and frozen desserts. Because of its softer texture it makes it easier to use in blenders and food processors and achieves the required finish in less time.

Nugget ice has also found a helpful application in the healthcare sector. Individuals with dental issues or those recovering from oral surgeries benefit from its soft texture as it easier to chew. Nugget ice is also commonly used in healthcare facilities to keep patients hydrated.
