THE TRUTH ABOUT HEALTHY ICE CREAMS | Too Good To Be True?

Halo Top, ‘the healthier ice cream’, may not be good for you, nutritionists say

Is Erythritol a Healthy Sugar Alternative? The Lazy Person’s Guide dietvsdisease.org
“…In one review, erythritol was shown to decrease dental plaque, oral bacteria, and the overall number of dental caries compared to xylitol and sorbitol (3).

In a clinical study of 485 school children over a 3-year period, the use of erythritol decreased and prolonged the development of dental caries when compared with other alternative sugars (4).

On the other hand, another study found that erythritol had no effect on plaque or oral hygiene when compared to other sugar alcohols (5)…

..

Many people report GI distress, specifically nausea, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and increased gas when consuming erythritol.

However, of all sugar alcohols available, erythritol is shown to cause less of these negative symptoms due to its small molecular size….

Summary: Erythritol and stevia are comparable sugar alternatives, though stevia has a few more health benefits. Honey is another great natural sweetener with many health benefits.

Conclusion

Erythritol is a good choice if you’re looking for a calorie-free sweetener that looks and tastes similar to table sugar.

It’s also a great sugar alternative if you have problems with blood sugar regulation.

The few negative side effects of erythritol are minor, avoidable or need more research to prove.

You may also want to consider natural sugar alternatives like stevia.”

You have to watch this video it shows a detailed look at four brands of Ice cream showcasing the good and the bad and you will not believe how horrible it turns out for Breyer’s.

Why We No Longer Eat Breyers Un-Natural Ice Cream homemadehints.com
“..I was disappointed, but how could I have imagined that this giant ice cream manufacturer that plops hundreds of thousands of gallons of ice cream into coated card board containers was making each carton with love and real commitment to all-natural ice cream and to world peace. Oh yes, forgive me. Tara gum is defined as a natural ingredient by the USDA…”
Ice Cream’s Identity Crisis De Gustibus By DAN BARRY APRIL 15, 2013 homemadehints.com

“..You might ask what the difference is between ice cream and a frozen dairy dessert, and I might answer that it is the same as the difference between a slice of American cheese and a slice of Kraft Singles American Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product. Since this is not helpful, we turn to a spokeswoman for the Food and Drug Administration, the guardian of “standards of identity,” who explained the distinction in a written response: “Ice cream requires specific levels of milk fat content, nonfat milk solids content, total solids in each gallon of ice cream, and total weight in each gallon of ice cream, while frozen dairy products do not.”

In general, ice cream has at least 10 percent dairy fat, and a frozen dairy dessert does not. In my freezer, the Breyers vanilla fudge twirl frozen dairy dessert has the ubiquitous corn syrup, and the Breyers vanilla ice cream does not.

Why, Breyers, why?..”

Health: Cooking Sweet Potatoes w/Sal (healthfitnesslifeguy)

How to Make Sal’s Sweet Potato Fries
1-warm a frying pan with olive oil at heat #3
2-cut a sweet potato in whatever size you desire, but thinner the better
3-place one slice at a time on a frying pan as “evenly” and flat as possible using as much space you can fit in the pan
4-add some pepper seasoning on top
5-cover the pan (air tight as possible) for quicker heating
6-cook 10 minutes or so until you hear constant fast sizzling
7-flip each potato and then add season pepper again
8-repeat step 6
9-ready and hot, which I recommend putting turmeric for healthy tasting (see down below for #healthbenefits)
10-Let it “cool” for a couple of minutes before eating, which I myself can get very tempted to eat right away. However, it’s hot in your mouth and you won’t be able to savor the flavor and taste! 🙂

Quest Bars, Demystified: 6 Nutrition Experts Weigh In breakfastcriminals.com
“..Are Quest bars really as nutritious as claimed?

Mark: Other than protein, I don’t see anything else nutritious about these bars. And even in the case of the protein, it’s isolated, not organic and not plant-based.

Willow: They contain a large amount of protein and fiber, a moderate amount of carbohydrate, and sodium, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, and iron. They do have nutrients, but since those nutrients are coming in in a fairly isolated way, they nutrient profile isn’t as varied as a whole food based bar.

I think the company makes most of their claims towards being low in “net carbs” — that’s a pretty empty claim since there really isn’t a legal definition of “net carbs” (i.e. the FDA regulates total carbs and breaks that down into fiber and sugar). So their claim of being lower in carbohydrate, or containing only 5g “net carbs, is a really soft claim and doesn’t have much to do with health. Their claims that these bars help you “cheat…without cheating” is also a pretty empty claim.

Amanda: Nope. But is anything as healthy as they claim?

Drinks: Spotlight-Root Beer

A tasting of nine “natural” root beers yields surprising results By Lou Bendrick on Jul 15, 2009 grist.org
“..Today, your beverage aisle might showcase retro, handcrafted “root sodas” with exotic spices, certified organic root beers, a green-tea root beer, and a diet root beer spiked with an eco-sounding plant-based sweetener. You might even be able to find a local root beer with an ostensibly lighter carbon footprint. OK, so what’s a green-minded, confused consumer like you to do, short of licking your cracked lips, throwing up your hands, and heading to the nearest vending machine?..

Maine Root
Ingredients: Carbonated pure water, organic fair trade–certified cane juice and spices (according to the website, the company uses extracts of wintergreen, clove, and anise).
Eco-claim: Organic fair trade–certified cane juice (though not USDA organic certified). Also, if you happen to live near Portland, Maine, you can take a small comfort in knowing that this root beer will be delivered via a biodiesel VW Jetta.
Price: $7.16 / four-pack of glass bottles..

…The bottom line: Whole Foods 365 Everyday Value Brand root beer tastes great and doesn’t contain HFCS. It may not be earnestly green, handcrafted, exotic, or zero-cal, but its low price means that you might be able to afford to top if off with a big dollop of really yummy organic vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!”

Virgil’s Root Beer

Also from the purists at Reed’s, Virgil’s Root Beer is root beer made the way nature intended, by brewing a combination of herbs and spices naturally, rather than concocting a chemistry experiment of artificial flavorings, dyes, and additives. The ingredients list reads like the gatherings of a world traveler–anise from Spain, vanilla from Madagascar, molasses from the U.S., and balsam oil from Peru–and will get you off that artificial canned stuff forever. However, good as it is, this soda won’t win you any favors with your waistline. At 160 calories per serving and 42 grams of sugar, make it a weekly indulgence…”

Is Diet Soda Safe for Diabetes? healthline.com
“Managing blood sugar levels is an everyday goal for people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. While eating sugar doesn’t cause either type of diabetes, keeping tabs on carbohydrate and sugar intake is an important part of managing both types of diabetes. Eating healthfully can also reduce your risk for developing type 2 diabetes…

Drinking sugary drinks is also a risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes. If you are working to keep your blood sugar in check or manage your weight, you might choose diet soda. Low in calories and sugar, diet sodas appear to be a good alternative to sugary drinks. Diet coke and A&W’s diet root beer, for example, claim to be entirely sugar-free. Unfortunately, even though they contain no actual sugar, they are loaded with artificial sweeteners and other unhealthy additives. …”

In the experiment, researchers discovered that artificial sweeteners can trigger sweet receptors in the stomach. This leads to an increase in insulin and lowered blood sugar. The stomach was essentially treating the artificial sweetener like real sugar, causing a spike in insulin. Researchers found this concerning but also said the spike in insulin wouldn’t likely cause clinical hypoglycemia, a risk for people on certain diabetes medications….”

The Best Root Beer: Our Taste Test Results
Kitchen Daily 03/30/2012 01:53 pm ET Updated Feb 15, 2013 huffingtonpost.com
“..Before you read the taste test results, let’s find out what exactly makes root beer taste like root beer. Here’s a list of the key flavors:

Anise: Imparts a licorice flavor.
Sarsaparilla: When soda production began in the last 1800s, sarsaparilla claimed to have health-giving properties. The root lends a very bitter flavor.
Birch oil: Made from the sap of birch trees, it gives a flavor similar to teaberry.
Wintergreen: Just what you’re probably thinking of — the minty flavor often found in chewing gum.
Sassafras: Coming from the sassafras tree, this imparts a deep, bitter flavor.
Vanilla extract (Bourbon or Tahitian): This gives root beer its distinctive creaminess.

Click through the slideshow below to see the results of our taste test…

#1: A&W
Comments: “Solid. The Tom Petty of root beers.” “Classic, creamy and smooth. I’d drink a lot of this.” “Nice and light, with a slight hint of root beer.” Ingredients: Carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup (yikes!), caramel color, sodium benzoate (preservative), natural and artificial flavors, quillaia extract.
(Joseph Erdos/Kitchen Daily)

#12: Virgil’s
Comments: “This tastes like a Good & Plenty. That’s the worst thing I can say about food.” “Anise!!!” “Awful. Tastes like cough syrup.” “Distinctively licorice-y. Unusual, but okay.” “Very nice hint of licorice.” Ingredients: Carbonated water, unbleached cane syrup, anise, licorice, vanilla (bourbon), cinnamon, clove, wintergreen, sweet birch, molasses nutmeg, pimento berry oil, balsam oil and oil of cassia.

Top Ten Best Root Beers thetoptens.com
“..IBC is by far my favorite root beer. I started drinking it about 10 years ago. Initially it was raised letters on the bottle that attracted me to give it a try. Now I have my local store order it by the case. I mostly drink diet root beer as I feel regular root beers are too sweet and creamy (go figure). IBC has a great balance of flavors with a strong bite. If I had to break it down I would say anise, molasses and vanilla. Unfortunately they’ve gone from 6 pack to 4 pack. One benefit was going from corn syrup to real sugar, but as for the diet they’ve said at IBC they’ve made no change. I can taste a change, it is a little more mild than the previous version. One question for IBC, if they’ve made no change to the diet version then why are the sodium numbers on the back lower than the 6 pack version of the IBC Diet? It is still my favorite with Boylan diet being second. I know lots of people say Virgil’s is has the best flavor with its dominant nutmeg. Although I do agree it has a …more..”

1919 Classic American Draft Root Beer 1919rootbeer.com

“..The name 1919 Classic American Draft Root Beer signifies the year when hundreds of breweries were faced with the prospect of closing because of Prohibition (1919-1933).

In order to keep their breweries open, several resourceful Brewmasters chose to make near beer, elixirs, and sodas! This practice was continued only until Prohibition was repealed, and breweries went back to making beer.

1919 is brewed in small batches with only the finest ingredients…real granulated sugar ~ the sweetener of choice during the prohibition era ~ and real vanilla. Our unique recipe and these choice ingredients make 1919 the creamiest, full bodied, draft root beer available. In addition, 1919 is alcohol-free and contains no corn syrup, gluten, or caffeine.
..

Question: Does 1919 contain corn syrup? My child is allergic to corn syrup.

1919 Classic American Draft Root Beer contains NO corn syrup.

Approximately 98% of sodas are made with corn syrup, which is much easier to use and less expensive than granulated sugar. Corn syrup was not developed until the 1970’s and true to our name and the era 1919 represents, we continue to use granulated sugar. Sugar is what gives 1919 the depth and consistency that is unique in the industry. It also makes 1919 taste so good!..”
