According to ClearlyVeg, the new ice creams are not only sweetened with organic cane sugar and monk fruit and 100 percent free of sugar alcohols, but also they are made from plant-based ingredients, specifically fava beans.

Now available on Amazon! #woohoo #nondairy #lowcalorie
“In our effort to get the texture and rich flavor of traditional ice cream, we experimented with dozens of different core ingredients for our Non-Dairy pints. Ultimately, the fava bean emerged as the perfect candidate for its luxurious mouthfeel and a slightly sweet flavor with no aftertaste to interfere with all of our delicious mix-ins,” said Greg Holtman, founder and chief flavor innovator at Arctic Zero.
The line will have nine delicious flavors such as Chocolate Peanut Butter, Salted Caramel, Cookie Shake, Purely Chocolate, Cake Batter, Brownie Blast, Cookie Dough Chunk, Hint of Mint, and Cherry Chocolate Chunk.
The new ice-creams are low calorie (only 160-320 calories per pint), low glycemic, Kosher, and non-GMO Project verified. All of Arctic Zero Non-Dairy pints will be available in Publix stores in Florida starting late August. The nationwide launch will come this fall.
“Arctic Zero believes everyone should be able to enjoy great tasting, low-calorie ice cream and frozen desserts without consuming sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners,” said the company in a press release. “Eating frozen desserts should be delightful and satisfying, not the cause of stomach upset or other side effects. Arctic Zero obsesses over our ingredients to provide the best-tasting, highest quality and most ethical products in the freezer aisle.”
This is among the newest releases done by the company in order to satisfy an increasing demand for organic products. Previous to this vegan line, the company launched Arctic Zero Light Ice Cream, a low-calorie ice cream made from milk and cream and sweetened with organic cane sugar.
These recent launches, such as Starbucks vegan PSL and more, show that more and more companies are listening to the 39% of Americans that (according to a recent Nielsen survey) are eager and willing to incorporate more vegan meals into their diets and that preference for plant-based alternatives is not something that’s solely restricted to those who practice veganism or vegetarianism in a rigorous way.
