Arctic Zero's frozen desserts go dairy-free

08/20/2018
Arctic Zero is introducing dairy-free options to its line of frozen desserts.

The San Diego, Calif.-based company's latest launch has replaced its original whey-based formulation with plant-based protein from faba beans to accommodate those who follow dairy-free diets.

“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,” Amit Pandhi, CEO of Arctic Zero, said. “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.”

Like other products from the brand, Arctic Zero Non-Dairy contains between 160-to-320 calories per pint and low glycemic. It also is Kosher and non-GMO Project Verified, the company said.

Coming in nine flavors — chocolate peanut butter, salted caramel, cookie shake, purely chocolate, cake batter, brownie blast, cookie dough chunk, hint of mint and cherry chocolate chunk — each is sweetened with organic cane sugar and monk fruit.

“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,” Pandhi said. “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.”

The non-dairy options will first hit the freezer aisle at Publix stores in Florida and expand to other retailers in the fall.
