Not only taste, discover the nutrients that make our Gelato irresistible!
When we think of ice cream, we mainly focus on its delicious taste. But did you know that ice cream can also provide important nutrients? In this article, we will explore the key components of ice cream and how they can contribute to the nutritional value of your diet. From protein to calcium, you will discover that ice cream can be more than just a summer treat.
RivaReno Gelateria, with its commitment to artisanal quality and attention to authentic ingredients, offers an ice cream experience that satisfies both your taste cravings and your nutritional needs. One of the primary ingredients of ice cream is milk. Milk provides essential proteins for tissue growth and repair, along with a good amount of calcium, which contributes to bone and teeth health. RivaReno uses only milk from selected Piedmontese farms to create its creamy and nutritious flavors.
Nutrients in Ice Cream
Let’s delve into a better understanding of the nutrients in ice cream. If it is made from milk or egg custard, it contains high-quality proteins, rich in essential amino acids necessary for tissue regeneration. Then there are fats that give ice creams a great smoothness and enhance the flavor of other ingredients.
Water is also one of the primary ingredients of ice cream. The amount typically ranges from 35% to 70%, with fruit ice creams having more water content than cream-based ones. Carbohydrates are also present, essential for the metabolism of red blood cells and nerve tissue, especially useful during the recovery phase of physical activity. Finally, there are vitamins and minerals, depending on the ice cream flavor you choose.
RivaReno’s Fruit Flavors: All the Flavor of Real Fruit
We’ve talked about fruit ice creams, and rightfully so, as fruit is among the healthiest nutrients in ice creams. Fruit is rich in vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber, which are essential for a balanced diet. For example, strawberry ice cream contains vitamin C, which plays a key role in the immune system’s health. It’s in this way that the Italian ice cream laboratory creates a product with a creamy and velvety texture.
Moreover, RivaReno’s fruit flavors offer all the flavor of real fruit. They are made without the use of concentrates, jams, or synthetic flavors. That’s why they are also called sorbets because they don’t contain milk or dairy derivatives but have a fruit content of up to 70%. One standout is the apricot ice cream, produced from late June to August when the flavor is particularly intense. To achieve the taste of these summer ice cream flavors, the laboratory uses both the fruit and its peel, which is rich in aromas and essential oils.
Dark Chocolate as a Key Ingredient in Ice Cream
Dark chocolate is another key ingredient in ice cream that offers nutritional benefits. RivaReno’s dark chocolate ice cream contains a high percentage of cocoa, which is rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants help combat oxidative stress in the body and can contribute to good cardiovascular health.
An excellent example is the Chocolate Rum flavor, where Italy meets Jamaica with a recipe elaborated by our laboratory. This ice cream emulates the taste of Cuneesi al rum chocolates. The main ingredients of the ice cream produced by the artisanal laboratory speak for themselves: the finest cocoa, dark chocolate flakes, and the addition of high-proof rum create the authenticity of a fresh, daily ice cream.
Many Summer Ice Cream Flavors, Including Dark Cream
RivaReno’s laboratory, with its attention to ingredient quality and nutrition, offers a wide range of summer ice cream flavors that satisfy both taste desires and nutritional needs. Whether you’re looking for a source of proteins, vitamins, or minerals, or simply want to treat yourself to something sweet, RivaReno always has something to offer.
Perfect for those who want to savor a genuine sensory pleasure is the “Cremino Dark.” We’re talking about layered dark chocolate gianduia, imitating the typical dark chocolate praline of the same name. It’s an incomparable flavor, achieved by combining dark chocolate, cream, and hazelnut, along with a layer of pistachio cream.
So, the next time you want to enjoy an ice cream rich in nutrients, choose RivaReno Gelateria, which allows you to delight your palate without compromising your physical shape too much. In a balanced diet, a good ice cream fits perfectly if consumed in moderation. Whether you’re looking for a classic dark chocolate ice cream or a healthier option like fruit ice cream flavors, RivaReno offers an exceptional taste experience.
