US low-calorie ice cream maker Arctic Zero has introduced a new line of non-dairy frozen desserts made with faba bean protein, designed to take the category forward. The brand has transformed its original lactose-free, whey-protein based frozen dessert to accommodate dairy-free diets with plant-based ingredients and a “creamier, more satisfying taste experience.”
Earlier this year, Arctic Zero introduced Arctic Zero Light Ice Cream, a low-calorie ice cream made with milk and cream and sweetened with organic cane sugar. Nine flavours of the new Arctic Zero Non-Dairy frozen desserts will begin appearing on grocers shelves this month, joining Arctic Zero Light Ice Cream in the freezer aisle.
“We created the original Arctic Zero so that people with restrictions like lactose-intolerance, low-sugar and low-calorie diets could enjoy a delicious frozen dessert without junk ingredients like erythritol and other sugar alcohols,” says Amit Pandhi, CEO of Arctic Zero. “The whole line is sweetened with organic cane sugar and and monk fruit”.
