Did you know Alexander the Great enjoyed snow and ice flavored with honey and nectar? Ice Cream has been around for centuries. Ice cream does contain quite a bit of sugar. However, in moderation, ice cream provides some surprising benefits.

Here are the top 3 health benefits:  

1.) Key Vitamins and Minerals

Up to 10% of your daily dietary allowance in calcium and phosphorous can be found in just half a cup of Ice Cream. Ice cream also contains vitamins A, C, D and E, as well as thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate and vitamins B-6 and B-12.

 

2.) Energy

Ice cream is rich in carbohydrates. There are about 15 grams in a one-half-cup serving. A serving also contains about 7 grams of fat and 2 grams of protein, making it an energy-dense food. In addition, many ice cream retailers add fresh fruit, honey, and cinnamon.

 

3.) Stimulates the Brain

Ice cream stimulates the thrombospondin. It is a naturally produced hormone of happiness and helps in reducing the levels of stress in the body. Ice cream is made of milk which contains L-tryptophan. A natural tranquilizer that aids in relaxing the nervous system.
 

Ice Cream has a rich history and its evolution continues to unfold. So think a little less about your Ice Cream and enjoy it a little more. Check out and follow Slices Concessions’ blog and social media for more ice cream knowledge!
