ARCTIC ZERO is the pioneer of Fit Frozen Desserts without all the fat or calories. Handcrafted from premium ingredients, ARCTIC ZERO is low glycemic, lactose free, gluten free, GMO free and kosher. It’s the perfect zero-guilt pleasure whenever your sweet tooth strikes.

What is the inspiration behind ARCTIC ZERO?

ARCTIC ZERO was created by Greg Holtman who vividly remembers caring for his mother, who was a type-1 diabetic. While Greg and his family loved sweets, especially ice cream, most desserts at the time contained artificial sweeteners and ingredients.

Unwilling to compromise between indulging his sweet tooth and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, Greg set out to craft a functional, yet indulgent, dessert with premium ingredients. After years of recipe tinkering, ARCTIC ZERO was born – a line of Fit Frozen Desserts with zero compromise.

OUR INGREDIENTS, NUTRITION AND ALLERGEN INFORMATION

What is ARCTIC ZERO sweetened with? What is monk fruit?

To create ARCTIC ZERO’s subtle sweetness, we use a proprietary blend of monk fruit and organic cane sugar. You won’t find any artificial sweeteners here!

Monk fruit is a small melon that’s harvested from the subtropical hillsides of Asia and gets its name from the Buddhist monks who have been enjoying its health benefits for centuries. A natural sweetener that’s low glycemic and rich in antioxidants, the pulp of each monk fruit is roughly 150 times sweeter than sugar!

Where does the protein in your Fit Frozen Desserts come from?

To make our nutrition-packed Fit Frozen Desserts, we use the finest quality whey protein. Our whey protein comes from a GMO-free region where it is hormone free and ultra filtered to remove the lactose, a natural sugar found in milk. You’ll find 12 grams of protein in each Creamy Pint, 12 grams of protein in each Chunky Pint and 3 grams of protein in each Chocolate-Dipped Bar.

Where does the fiber in your Fit Frozen Desserts come from?

Our Fit Frozen Desserts are enriched with two GMO-free fiber ingredients. Chicory root, known for its prebiotic and blood-sugar-stabilizing properties, is a soluble fiber that comes from a native Mediterranean plant. Sugarcane fiber is an insoluble fiber and helps to aid in digestion. You’ll find 8 grams of fiber in each Creamy Pint, 12 grams of fiber in each Chunky Pint and 2 grams of fiber in each Chocolate-Dipped Bar.

What are the natural flavors in ARCTIC ZERO made of?

Our plant-based natural flavors give each ARCTIC ZERO Fit Frozen Dessert their own unique, indulgent taste. You’ll never find any monosodium glutamate (MSG) or hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP) in our natural flavors.

How is ARCTIC ZERO so much lower in calories than ice cream?

Through a spirit of innovation and a commitment to the highest quality, our promise is to provide Fit Frozen Desserts to the world with zero compromise. While our Fit Frozen Desserts taste like ice cream, they are not made like ice cream, nor do they contain the same ingredients as ice cream. With our novel manufacturing process and blend of premium ingredients, we are able to make Fit Frozen Desserts with less fat, more fiber and fewer calories than traditional ice cream. ARCTIC ZERO is an original ice cream alternative that we’ve worked hard to create just for you!

Is ARCTIC ZERO lactose free? Dairy free?

Yes, ARCTIC ZERO is lactose free. We use the finest quality whey protein to craft our Fit Frozen Desserts, which is ultra filtered to remove the lactose, a natural sugar found in milk.

ARCTIC ZERO is not dairy free because one of the main ingredients in our Fit Frozen Desserts is whey protein, a protein naturally found in milk.
