Thrive Ice Cream Is Available in No Sugar Added Flavors!
The American Diabetes Association reports that as of 2012, 29 million U.S. citizens have diabetes. Simply put, roughly one in ten Americans must watch their sugar intake.
According to DiabeticLivingOnline.com, ice cream suitable for a diabetic diet should contain, based on a four-ounce serving, 150 calories or less, no more than five percent saturated fat, zero trans fats, 20 grams or less of carbohydrates, 100 milligrams of sodium or less, and at least eight percent of the recommended daily intake (RDI) of calcium.
A four-ounce serving of Thrive No Sugar Added Cream Vanilla meets or exceeds these guidelines, with 150 calories, five percent saturated fat, zero trans fats, 17 grams of carbohydrates, 70 milligrams of sodium, and a whopping 25 percent of RDI of calcium! Also included are seven grams of protein, five grams of fiber, 24 vitamins and minerals, four active probiotics including patented GanedenBC30® for digestive and immune health, plus all natural flavors and colors. Thrive Ice Cream is reduced lactose, certified Real Dairy, and appropriate for kosher and gluten-free diets.
Even with just three grams of sugar, No Sugar Added Thrive Ice Cream tastes sweet. We use Maltitol Syrup as the sugar alcohol replacing the carbohydrate sweetener and a blend of Sucralose (Splenda) and Acesulfame Potassium as the high intensity sweeteners. Maltitol was chosen as it’s relatively high in sweetness, lower in calories than sugar, and has the highest laxation threshold (100 grams/day) of all sugar alcohols. The blend of Splenda and Ace K give the most sugar like flavor without the bitter or metallic aftertaste of some high intensity sweeteners.
No Sugar Added Simply Vanilla Thrive Ice Cream in Six-Ounce, Single Serving Cups Is Available for Healthcare and Sports Nutrition Programs.
