Arctic Zero, San Diego, Calif., introduced a new line of non-dairy, plant-based frozen desserts.
"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, chief executive officer. "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 flavor that really wows and a creamier texture than ever."
Arctic Zero non-dairy is low calorie (only 160-320 calories per pint), low glycemic, Kosher and non-GMO Project verified.
"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," says Pandhi. "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."
"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," says Greg Holtman, founder and chief flavor innovator. "Ultimately, the faba bean emerged as the perfect candidate for its luxurious mouth-feel and a slightly sweet flavor with no aftertaste to interfere with all of our delicious mix-ins."
Arctic Zero non-dairy comes in Chocolate Peanut Butter, Salted Caramel, Cookie Shake, Purely Chocolate, Cake Batter, Brownie Blast, Cookie Dough Chunk, Hint of Mint and Cherry Chocolate Chunk.
Arctic Zero non-dairy pints will first appear in the freezer aisle of Publix stores in Florida in late August and will be available nationwide later this fall.
