Remarks

You will see how the trick of incorporating a beaten egg white lightens the sorbet in both senses: not only in texture, but also in colour, as it changes from red to pink. This does not affect the flavour, and the lighter sorbet will also keep without turning hard. Professional makers inject air into their ice creams to achieve the same effect.
