Lactose intolerance occurs when the body does not produce enough of the enzyme lactase. When babies are born they produce this enzyme so they can digest breast milk, but this often changes after early childhood. This is proven by the nearly 30 million Americans here in America that are lactose intolerant. However, this is much more common in Asian, African, Native American, and Mediterranean populations. Though there is currently no way to prevent lactose intolerance, many food manufacturers have brought products to the market that can still satisfy the dairy appetite. This is especially true when it comes to ice cream.
However many brands of soy and rice milk contain polyunsaturated vegetable oils which can contribute to an imbalance of essential fatty acids in your body. In addition some brands of soy and rice milk contain rice syrup, evaporated cane juice, or some other sweeteners. Most sweeteners put significant stress on the pancreas and liver. They also raise insulin levels, which significantly increases the risk of suffering from unhealthy weight gain, high blood pressure, heart disease, premature aging, and several other negative side effects.
Move over rice and soy, Arctic Zero is made with whey protein concentrate and a patented sweetener that makes it a friend of those that are lactose intolerant. For those ice cream lovers with lactose intolerance that are watching out for their health, soy and rice products haven’t been able to cut it…until now. Arctic Zero uses whey protein concentrate instead of soy or rice to create a dessert that simulates the texture and flavor of ice cream without any added fat.
In addition the whey protein adds 20 grams of protein per pint which is critical for growth and maintenance of every kind of cell in the body including body development. The protein found in Arctic Zero also promotes healthy metabolic and physiological processes, and boosts the nervous and immune systems. It’s nice to know that something as healthy as Arctic Zero also tastes good enough to consume regularly.
