As the awareness of being healthy continues to grow, it’s not rare to see lactose- or dairy-free ice cream on the market. However, innovators haven’t stopped there but striven to offer not only more flavors but also more options for health-conscious consumers.
Stevia sweeteners producer PureCircle recently launched a new range of ice cream with no added sugar in the United States. To diabetic patients, ice cream is no longer a “mustn’t-have.” The new ice cream is available in four flavors — vanilla, chocolate, coffee, and salted caramel, together with a frozen vegan dessert in fruit flavor.
It’s believed that the next-generation non-GMO stevia sweeteners have “a clean, sugar-like taste,” which makes it work perfectly in other food products like ice cream. Sweetened by stevia, such products don’t contain any artificial sweeteners like other sugar-free ice creams do. The new ice cream range will be sold in Chicago first.
More Vegan Style
If you are a vegan, you will find some 20 different vegan flavors available from Halo Top scoop shops. For example, its dairy-free flavors, including Chocolate Almond Crunch, Peanut Butter & Jelly, and Toasted Coconut, allow vegans and those who are intolerant to lactose to indulge themselves in ice creams. What’s more, each pint has only 280-360 calories. Well, if you are not so sure which flavor to get, you’d probably go to their brick-and-mortar shops to try out first.
