Wheyhey is an the award-winning high-protein, sugar-free ice cream. Established in 2013 the brand is now available from Tesco’s. Greg Duggan, co-founder of Wheyhey, comments, “Our ice cream offer something completely different to the current offering in supermarket freezers. Our goal is to change what it means for consumers to eat truly great tasting healthy food and this listing is the beginning.” Wheyhey provides a healthier alternative to traditional ice cream. It is available in a range of delicious flavours including Chocolate, Banoffee, Strawberry and Vanilla. Wheyhey is made from the finest quality whey protein isolate, which is a product created in the cheese making process; it’s 100% natural and easily and rapidly digested. It is sweetened by Xylitol, which is a natural sweetener that does not impact on blood sugar levels and is recommended by dentists. A 150ml tub of ice cream has only 4g of fat and provides as much protein as a medium sized chicken breast, with the 150 calories per pot being derived mainly from protein rather than empty sugars and fats. www.wheyhey.com
