This new ice cream just might be the decadent delight you have been waiting for this summer. Everybody loves ice cream and summer is the time we are all on the hunt for a new favorite. So here, fat and calorie counters, glycemic scale watchers, and those with various special dietary restrictions. This one is for you.
Arctic Zero is a new product causing a stir in healthy eating circles everywhere. The ice cream is available in pints as well as bars in a variety of yummy flavors. So what is so spectacular about Arctic Zero? The Arctic Zero folks call this a super dessert or a protein shake in ice cream form. They use a high quality whey protein, like a protein shake. One of the benefits–its whey protein concentrate is assimilated quickly by your muscles and contains essential amino acids. Sounds pretty good for …ice cream. This product definitely has its followers.
Unique blend of sweeteners
In addition, Arctic Zero sweetens with a proprietary blend of organic cane sugar and monk fruit concentrate. The use of organic cane sugar with monk fruit concentrate gives Arctic Zero the ability to increase the sweetness of Arctic Zero but also allows it to drop both the grams of sugar and carbohydrate count by more than 30%. Sounds awesome! Check out my links to their website for more health benefits.
