The World’s First Super Premium, Creamy, All Natural, Vegan Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert Gives Vegans, Lactose-Intolerant And Health-Conscious Consumers A Rich Reason To Rejoice.

(Eugene, Oregon) An estimated 30 to 50 million Americans—about 25% of the U.S. population-- are lactose intolerant and countless more seek alternatives to dairy for religious, philosophical or health reasons. By providing consumers with super premium non-dairy frozen dessert alternatives to dairy fat, milk products and cholesterol, Purely Decadent Soy Delicious® non-dairy frozen desserts provide a truly indulgent eating experience without the discomfort often associated with dairy desserts. Lactose intolerant people cannot digest foods containing lactose, the sugar found in milk, and may experience gas, bloating, stomach cramps, diarrhea, and nausea within as little as 30 minutes or up to two hours after ingesting foods that contain lactose. This condition may develop over time, affects about 15% of Caucasian adults and is widespread among other ethnic groups. An estimated 70% of African-American, 74% of Native American, 53% of Mexican-American, and 90% of Asian American adults are affected. The easiest and least expensive way to control symptoms is to avoid foods containing lactose. But this doesn’t mean going without dessert!
