Arctic Zero Goes Plant-Based

Latest News

Frozen dessert company Arctic Zero has announced they are officially certified as a plant-based ice cream company.

The company announced they will now be using fava bean protein instead of whey – making the dessert now vegan. Arctic Zero initially launched a vegan range of their already low-calorie ice cream in 2018 made with the fava bean, producing nine flavours and adding two more this week; but now all their ice creams will be made with the protein. 

Arctic Zero was created by Greg Holtman who wanted to create a low-calorie dessert option for people who are diabetic (as his mother has Type 1 diabetes) and wanted to provide a healthier option for his children. The ice creams are free from dairy, GMO, artificial ingredients and sugar alcohols; they also offer gluten-free and low-glycemic options as well.

This comes after Forbes revealed, early this year, that ‘plant-based ice cream is flying off the shelves’. With the global dairy-free ice cream market size being valued at $455.9 million in 2018 and is anticipated to reach $1.2 billion by 2025. Many companies are introducing a plant-based range like Ben & Jerry’s offering dairy-free options, Magnum and Häagen-Dazs. We have also seen a rise in businesses who solely focus on plant-based ice-creams with the likes of Cado, Planet Oat and Coconut Bliss establishing themselves in the dairy-free market.
