The problem with sugar
WHO guidelines recommend adults and children reduce their daily intake of free sugars to less than 10% of their total energy intake.
A further reduction to below 5% or roughly 25 grams (6 teaspoons) per day would provide additional health benefits.
Free sugars refer to monosaccharides (such as glucose, fructose) and disaccharides (such as sucrose or table sugar) added to foods and drinks by the manufacturer, cook or consumer, and sugars naturally present in honey, syrups, fruit juices and fruit juice concentrates.

Sugars in gelato and ice cream
A portion of 100 g of gelato and ice cream generally contains between 25 g and 35 g of free sugars.
A portion of gelato includes all the sugars that one adult person should eat in one day for a balanced diet, however sugars are present in a lot of food and the total count in one day can easily reach 4-5 times the recommended dose.
For this reason we want to offer a product which reduces the amount of sugar in gelato and offers the possibility of a healthier life to everybody without giving up the pleasure of eating gelato.
WHO recommends a reduced intake of free sugars throughout the lifecourseWorld Health Organisation
WHO suggests a daily intake of fibers for adults of 25 g to 38 g, while the average consumption in most countries is below 20 g per day.
Adding fibers to our formulation doesn’t only improve the texture and the shelf life, but it also improves its nutritional value bringing a considerable amount of healthy fibers into the diet.
Keto diet is one of the most restrictive diets in terms of sugars and carbohydrates and one of the biggest trends around the world in the past few years.
Almost no carbs are admitted in a keto diet and for this reason having a keto-friendly product already includes less strict diets involving sugar reductions.
