The Cultured Ice Cream Company makes delicious probiotic, dairy-free, sugar-free gelato.

Janelle McInerney

Hi! I'm Janelle McInerney.

I am an Eco Entrepreneur with an abiding interest in the wellbeing of others. My focus is on living naturally. That's why my gelato is a living food that tastes absolutely amazing. The main ingredient, Kefir, is a naturally fermented food that has been used for many centuries in the Caucasus and Tibet. Traditionally, kefir is made with dairy, but we use wild coconut cream (not the farmed stuff!). Sheer genius! Now we can all reap the benefits!

IT'S ALIVE, yummy, and great for your tummy! Kefir is the living culture that converts the ingredients into a unique organic food that contains over 44 probiotics, enzymes and antioxidants. AND it's low-GI.

We honour classic gelato proportions - without using dairy and cane sugar. Ice cream has more sugar and fat, and more air than gelato. Gelato is silkier and softer, and is served at a lower temperature, so you can really appreciate the flavour. But, we call it ice cream - doesn't matter!

Gelato needs 'sugar' in large quantities, or else it wouldn't be gelato. Sugar makes it possible to scoop direct from the freezer. We only use natural sweeteners and have walked the tightrope between sweetness and scoop-ability - all without the additives found in commercial ice creams. If any of our sweeteners are not on your 'approved list', maybe they are in small enough of a quantities for you to try some. For example, we have kept any glucose low so as not to cause insulin spikes.

Ingredients

Vanilla Bean - Kefir fermented wild coconut cream (NOT from a can); natural sweeteners derived from stevia leaf (with NO after-taste!); non-GMO birch sugar and less than 3% glucose; paleo vegetable starch; vanilla bean; vegan gums; <1% mineral salt. No cane sugar is added.

Organic Belgian Chocolate - Dairy- and soy-free 74% Organic Belgian chocolate and Dutch cocoa; kefir fermented coconut cream; natural sweeteners derived from stevia leaf, birch sugar and glucose; mineral salt. No cane sugar is added (1% organic cane sugar is already in the chocolate). Read about the health benefits of dark chocolate.

Organic Mixed Berry - Organic blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries; kefir fermented coconut cream; natural sweeteners derived from stevia leaf, birch sugar, glucose; vegetable starch; vegan gums; mineral salt. Read about the health benefits of berries.

We're always trying out new flavours. Visit us at one of the farmers markets for a taste. The Plum Pudding gelato at Christmas time is well worth the wait!
