INFORMATIONAL TEXT

This is a text that I had read to make sense of it,
 before going into making 
ICE CREAM.

***

A COLLOID is a liquid in which microscopic particles of a solid or another liquid are suspended.  Milk is an emulsion.  An emulsion is a colloid in which both the solvent and the solute are liquids.

Note that a solvent is a liquid that allows another substance to dissolve in it.  A solute is the substance that dissolves in the solvent.
