A good source for calculating initial freezing temperatures and freezing curves of mixes can be found in the following references: 

  • R. Bradley, and K. Smith, Finding the freezing point of frozen desserts, Dairy Record. 84(6): 114 (1983).
  • R. Bradley, Plotting freezing curves for frozen desserts, Dairy Record. 85(7): 86 (1984).

An example calculation can be downloaded here.
