Is Diet Ice Cream Unhealthy?

What if we told you diet ice cream isn’t real ice cream. It’s made with similar ingredients, but a bunch of extra stuff like protein isolate, synthetic fibers, emulsifying agents, stevia, and sugar alcohols according to dietitian, nutritionist, and author Jaclyn London. Real ice cream is made from milk, cream, sugar, flavors, and eggs, and per the U.S. Department of Agriculture, ice cream must have 20% cream and 10% milk.

The low-calorie, low-fat, low-sugar, and high protein “frozen treat” is not necessarily the healthy option you’re looking for. Like many diet food, when swapping fake ingredients for real ones, it results in an unfulfilling meal or dessert. You may feel physically full, but your body is still hungry. This may trigger binge-eating. While there’s nothing wrong with eating diet ice cream, always read the ingredients and be wary of feeling dissatisfied.
