Arctic Zero has expanded its low-calorie ice cream portfolio by creating a new range of plant-based, non-dairy ice creams for the US market.
Ice creams in the Arctic Zero Non-Dairy range contain faba bean protein rather than milk and cream, are sweetened with organic cane sugar and monk fruit and contain no sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners.
Nine flavours are available in the range: Chocolate peanut butter, salted caramel, cookie shake, purely chocolate, cake batter, brownie blast, cookie dough chunk, hint of mint and cherry chocolate chunk.
All flavours in the range are packaged in pint tubs, and contain between 160-320 calories per tub, or 70-90 calories per serving, and all flavours contain 1.5g of fat or less.
Amit Pandhi, CEO of Arctic Zero said: “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.
“True to our founding promise, our new plant-based Arctic Zero Non-Dairy contains the cleanest, premium ingredients we could source including faba bean protein.
“We’re confident our long-time fans also are going to love the change. Arctic Zero Non-Dairy pints have a much stronger, richer flavour that really wows and a creamier texture than ever.
Greg Holtman, Arctic Zero founder added: “In our effort to get the texture and rich flavour of traditional ice cream, we experimented with dozens of different core ingredients for our Non-Dairy pints.
“Ultimately, the faba bean emerged as the perfect candidate for its luxurious mouth-feel and a slightly sweet flavour with no aftertaste to interfere with all of our delicious mix-ins.”
Arctic Zero Non-Dairy ice creams will be available from Publix stores in Florida from late August, and will be released nationwide in the US later this year.
The release of the new range follows on from the release of the brand’s Light low-calorie ice cream range earlier this year.
