GRESHAM, Oregon (August 29, 2017) — The low-sugar, high-protein ice cream category is blowing up. With the exponential success of better-for-you ice cream brands such as Halo Top, which has seen a whopping 2,500% increase in sales in 2016, the sub-category has come to life.
“Manufacturers we’ve spoken with say their biggest challenge is coming up with a recipe that yields the desired nutritionals, yet still tastes excellent and also has the right mouthfeel and creamy texture of traditional ice cream,” said Thom King, president and CEO of Steviva Ingredients. “So we created a low-sugar, high-protein dry mix that gives dairy producers a plug-in solution to take the guesswork out of creating a superior product with fewer than 80 calories per serving.”
A proprietary blend of PuRefine MonkSweet® monk fruit extract, ErySweet®+100 stevia and erythritol blend, milk protein concentrates and natural gums and stabilizers, HiPro® Ice Cream Dry Mix enables manufacturers to create a “homestyle” ice cream with a short ingredient list that yields an impressive five grams of protein and just 8.3 grams of carbs per serving.
“Ultimately, consumers make purchasing decisions with their taste buds,” King said. “In addition to its low-calorie, high-protein positioning, HiPro Ice Cream Dry Mix truly delivers on taste and texture. It’s the ‘cleanest’ ice cream I’ve ever had.”
As with all Steviva Ingredients’ sweetening system solutions, HiPro Ice Cream Dry Mix is GMO-free, allergen-free and kosher-certified.
HiPro Ice Cream Dry Mix is available in 25-kilogram, poly-lined boxes and makes more than 1,000 pints of finished ice cream.
