Product Talk: Ice cream, Frozen Yogurt and Sorbet, Oh My!


Ice creams and cold treats become a staple item in most southern freezers in the hot summer. When kids are running in from splashing around in the pool and shooting hoops outside they want a cold treat to cool them down.

 There are many frozen treats on the market today; you can choose from a variety of ice creams, frozen yogurts, sorbet and other frozen items. With such a vast variety, choosing a nutritious treat can become difficult.

The NuVal scores for these treats can be as low as 1, all the way to a perfect score of 100. Even though you can find high scoring products, most frozen treats never exceed a score of a 40. The nutrients that have the greatest influence on scores in this category are calories, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol and added sugars.  

Next time you’re looking for a frozen treat try to find a product that is higher than the average score of a 17.
