Suncream Dairies has launched a new natural vanilla Vegan ice cream in response to the growing demand for free from desserts.
Love Vegan, made with real vanilla beans and flecked with vanilla pod seeds for a rich, indulgent flavour, is a perfect alternative to traditional dairy ice cream. Free from all 14 declarable allergens including gluten, soya, nut, lactose and egg, it is also registered with The Vegan Society.
“With veganism and free from predicted to be two of the fastest growing food trends, we wanted to create a non-dairy ice cream that everyone can enjoy,” commented Rebecca Manfredi, Suncream’s managing director. “It’s packed full of flavour and despite being milk-free, delivers a lovely creamy mouth feel.”
Love Vegan Vanilla, made with coconut oil and dextrose, is easy to scoop and available in 5 litre resealable Napoli containers – ideal for use ‘back of house’ or in Napoli scooping cabinets.
Gavin Kellett, Head Chef at the renowned The Vine Tree restaurant in Llangattock, Wales, and twice winner of The Cordon Vert Chef of the Future competition which specialises in vegetarian cuisine, commented: “At The Vine Tree we try to source the best possible ingredients and products. We focus a lot on catering for vegans and we believe Suncream’s vanilla bean vegan ice cream is the best on the market.”
Love Vegan Vanilla is the latest addition to the Suncream ice cream collection which includes the Gelato Gold range of luxury Italian-style ice creams in 17 classic and contemporary flavours, premium Sorbets and the Summertime ‘value’ range.
“Ice cream remains a popular choice all year round – whether on its own, as an accompaniment to desserts or as a scoop for a treat – and with the demand for vegetarian and free from food growing all the time, it makes good business sense for caterers to offer a vegan option,” adds Rebecca.
