“We created the original Arctic Zero so that people with restrictions like lactose intolerance, low sugar and calorie diets can enjoy a delicious frozen dessert free from unwanted ingredients like erythritol and others. sugar alcohols, “said Amit Pandhi. âTrue to our founding promise, our new herbal non-dairy product Arctic Zero contains the cleanest premium ingredients we can source, including bean protein. We’re confident our longtime fans will love the change as well. Arctic Zero Non-dairy pints have a much stronger, richer flavor that truly impresses and a creamier texture than ever before. ”
Like its predecessor, Arctic Zero Non-Dairy is low in calories (only 160-320 calories per pint), low on the glycemic index, kosher, and non-GMO verified. Arctic Zero never uses artificial or questionable sweeteners in any of its products. Arctic Zero Non-Dairy is sweetened with organic cane sugar and monk fruit and contains no sugar alcohol.
âArctic Zero believes that everyone should be able to enjoy tasty, low-calorie ice cream and frozen desserts without consuming sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners,â Pandhi said. âEating frozen desserts should be delicious and satisfying, not the cause of an upset stomach or other side effects. Arctic Zero is obsessed with our ingredients to deliver the tastiest, highest quality and most ethical products to the freezer aisle. “
A Nielsen Global Investigation1 found that 39% of Americans try to incorporate more plant-based foods into their diets, and the preference for plant-based options isn’t limited to those who follow a strictly vegetarian or vegan diet.
The new non-dairy plant-based Artic Zero contains bean protein which Arctic Zero says has a milder, sweeter, and richer flavor than many other plant proteins.
âIn our effort to achieve the texture and rich flavor of traditional ice cream, we have experimented with dozens of different basic ingredients for our non-dairy quarts,â said Greg holtman, founder and chief innovator of the brand’s flavors.
âIn the end, the faba bean established itself as the perfect candidate for its luxurious mouthfeel and slightly sweet flavor with no aftertaste that might interfere with all of our delicious blends,â said Holtman.
