Each ingredient has been thoughtfully chosen and serves a primary purpose in producing the highest quality of frozen dessert possible. In addition all ingredients marked with an asterisk are certified organic!

Don’t understand what some of our ingredients are? Let us explain! 

Glucose – the body naturally produces glucose, which means it is metabolised easily by our bodies and can be utilised by every cell! Glucose is also great at reducing the freezing point, meaning that ice cream is soft opposed to hard!!

Guar gum *– is a high fibre product used to bind, thicken and emulsify the other gluten-free ingredients.

Xanthan gum – is fermented by plant-loving bacteria and is used as a natural emulsifier that ensures smoothness.

Cacao* – is choc-full of antioxidants, which helps protect our hearts, prevents cellular damage, and keeps us looking and feeling younger!

Cashew butter* – is made up of raw cashew nuts and is high in protein, unsaturated fats and B vitamins that help to boost the metabolism and promote cellular health.
