Diet ice creams might brag that you can “eat the whole pint” and get just 320 calories. But if you look carefully, you’ll find that eating the entire pint will also give you a whopping 28g of sugar, 160 mg of cholesterol, 440 mg of sodium, 60g of carbs and 20g of sugar alcohols.
Nutritionists point out that your body doesn’t recognize sugar alcohol as food and it doesn’t deliver energy, which might cause you to overeat. For some, especially children, sugar alcohols cause digestive issues.
In contrast, Brio’s rich, creaminess provides the satisfaction you want with just a half cup serving. With a serving of Brio, you get just 155 calories, 14g of added sugar (and 4g of naturally occurring sugar from the lactose in our organic whole milk), 20mg of cholesterol, 80mg of sodium, 19g of carbs and absolutely no sugar alcohol.
That last point is important. There is no erythritol or other sugar alcohols in Brio, and no monk fruit or stevia. Instead, Brio is thoughtfully sweetened with our patented blend of natural sweeteners, including organic dried cane syrup, pure non-corn non-GMO fructose, and organic agave nectar.
If you’ve read about the importance of healthy fats for brain and heart health, you’ll be happy to know that Brio has 149mg of Omega 3s and 3000mg of Omega 9.
There are additional benefits with Brio. You get 250 million CFUs of probiotics in every serving to support gut health.
You also benefit from 6g of quality protein and key nutrients, including calcium, magnesium, Vitamin D and antioxidants (Vitamins A, C and E).
Brio also has less air whipped into it, which adds to its creaminess. A half cup of serving of Brio weighs 90g. Compare that to other brands and you’ll find that the same serving size weighs less, which means they contain more air and offer less satisfaction.
This is unparalleled, smart, and satisfying nutrition, and you can’t find it anywhere else in the ice cream aisle.
