The UK brand Wheyhey is currently producing specialty ice cream that can help consumers up their protein intake. In recent years, many consumers have begun looking for ways to add more protein to their diet. This product helps consumers ensure they are getting enough protein by adding it to a popular dessert.
Wheyhey produces ice cream with the same whey protein isolate that is used in the cheese-making process. As a result, each tub of ice cream has about 20 grams of protein, which is equivalent to that of a medium-sized chicken breast. Despite the high protein content, the ice cream is still low in sugar. The company uses the natural sweetener xylitol to keep sugar levels low and the calorie content around 150 per serving.
The nutritious ice cream range is likely to appeal to athletes and other health-consious consumers looking for any easy way to add more protein to their diet.
