STORY: After a trip to the local frozen yogurt shop left Vedder's founder, Ashley Vedder, and her family with belly aches and a sleepless night, Vedder had an epiphany. Why on Earth was it so difficult to find a non-dairy ice cream without cane sugar that would leave dessert advocates feeling healthy and guilt-free? Not to mention, one that
actually tasted like real ice cream?
-
After in depth research, Vedder soon discovered that cane sugar has been determined to cause the brain to rot - sugar addiction, decreased cognition, tension, depression, dementia, and memory loss were side effects of its consumption. She began working on her vegan recipes, sweetened with dates and maple syrup, right away.

The driving force behind a nutrition specific ice cream line is more personal than the single frozen yogurt belly ache incident. Vedder's husband, Justin, was diagnosed with young-onset Parkinson's in 2014 and developing healthy eating plans has been crucial to slowing the progression of the disease. Each ice cream flavor caters to his plan as a limited ingredient dessert option.

Service with a smile! Absolutely delicious!! Super creamy, sugar free, gluten free vegan ice cream. I got the chocolate ice cream with peanut butter chocolate chip cookie to make an ice cream sandwich. I haven't had an ice cream sandwich in 10 years!! I'm gluten free and 90 percent fruitarian and vegan. I tried the lemon bar ice cream as a tester & that one was super good as well. I was so excited to read my vegan friend Molly's review and find this because of her Yelp review. Thank you Molly!!! More people need to find this Gem of a place and discover pure bliss!! The server Zo was so nice and she allowed me to try several ice creams before buying. I was super impressed with this place. It's so cute! A must try!!

ABOUT ICE CREAM

Ice cream is a frozen dessert typically made from milk or cream that has been flavored with a sweetener, either sugar or an alternative, and a spice, such as cocoa or vanilla, or with fruit, such as strawberries or peaches. Food coloring is sometimes added in addition to stabilizers. The mixture is cooled below the freezing point of water and stirred to incorporate air spaces and prevent detectable ice crystals from forming. It can also be made by whisking a flavored cream base and liquid nitrogen together. The result is a smooth, semi-solid foam that is solid at very low temperatures (below 2 °C or 35 °F). It becomes more malleable as its temperature increases.

A sandwich cookie, also known as a sandwich biscuit, is a type of cookie made from two thin cookies or medium cookies with a filling between them.Many types of fillings are used, such as cream, ganache, buttercream, chocolate, cream cheese, jam, peanut butter, lemon curd, or ice cream.

Gluten sensitivity gluten sensitivity (NCGS), or gluten intolerance, is a syndrome in which people develop a variety of intestinal and/or extra intestinal symptoms that improve when gluten is removed from the diet, after coeliac disease and wheat allergy are excluded.

NCGS, which is possibly immune-mediated, now appears to be more common than coeliac disease,

with a prevalence estimated to be 6–10 times higher.

Gastrointestinal symptoms, which resemble those of

irritable bowel syndrome, may include any of the following: abdominal pain, bloating, bowel habit abnormalities (either diarrhea or constipation) nausea, sarcophagi, gastrointestinal, reflux disease, and aphthous stomatitis. Extra-intestinal symptoms, which can be the only manifestation of NCGS even in absence of gastrointestinal symptoms, may be any of the following: headache or migraine , "foggy mind", fatigue fibromyalgia joint and muscle pain, leg or arm numbness tingling of the extremities,

dermatitis (eczema or skin rash), atopic disorders allergy to one or more inhalants, foods or metals (such as mites, graminaceae,parietaria, cat or dog hair,shellfish, or nickel),m depression anxiety anemia

iron-deficiency anemia, folate deficiency asthma, rhinitis, eating disorders or autoimmune diseases

Vedders serves dairy free products since theirs

Milk allergy

is an adverse immune reaction to one or more proteins cow's milk Symptoms may take hours to days to manifest, with symptoms including a topic dermatitis,inflammation of the esophagus, enteropathy involving the small intestine and proctocolitis involving the rectum and colon. However, rapid anaphylaxis is possible, a potentially life-threatening condition that requires treatment with epinephrine, among other measures. In the United States, 90% of allergic responses to foods are caused by eight foods, and cow's milk is the most common. Recognition that a small number of foods are responsible for the majority of food allergies has led to requirements to prominently list these common allergens, including dairy, on food labels. One function of the immune system is to defend against infections by recognizing foreign proteins, but it should not overreact to food proteins.

Heating milk proteins can cause them to become denatured losing their three-dimensional configuration and allergenic, so baked goods containing dairy products may be tolerated while fresh milk triggers an allergic reaction.The condition may be managed by avoiding consumption of any dairy products or foods that contain dairy ingredients.For people subject to rapid reactions ( IE-mediatednmilk allergy), the dose capable of provoking an allergic response can be as low as a few milligrams, so such people must strictly avoid dairy.The declaration of the presence of trace amounts of milk or dairy in foods is not mandatory in any country, with the exception of Brazil. Milk allergy affects between 2% and 3% of babies and young children. To reduce risk, recommendations are that babies should be exclusively breastfed for at least four months, preferably six months, before introducing cow's milk.

If there is a family history of dairy allergy, then soy infant formula can be considered, but about 10 to 15% of babies allergic to cow's milk will also react to soy.The majority of children outgrow milk allergy, but for about 0.4% the condition persists into adulthood.Oral immunotherapy is being researched, but it is of unclear benefit.

Mint Chocolate Chip

is an ice cream flavor composed of mint ice cream with small chocolate chips. In some cases the liqueur crème de menthe is used to provide the mint flavor, but in most cases peppermint or spearmint flavoring is used. Food coloring is usually added to make it green, but it may be beige or white in "all natural" or "organic" varieties.

Vanilla ice cream

served on an ice cream cone Dame blanche (dessert)Vanilla is frequently used to flavor ice cream, especially in North America, Asia, and Europe. Vanilla ice cream like other flavors of ice cream, was originally created by cooling a

mixture made of cream, sugar, and vanilla above a container of ice and salt.The type of vanilla used to flavor ice cream varies by location. In

North America and Europe consumers are interested in a more prominent, smoky flavor, while in Ireland, a more anise -like flavor is desired. To create the smooth consistency of ice cream, the mixture has to be stirred occasionally and then returned to the container of ice and salt to continue the solidification

process. According to Iced: 180 Very Cool Concoctions , many people often consider vanilla to be the " default " or "plain" flavor of ice cream (see "

Chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream was said to have originated in 1984 at the first Ben & Jerry's "scoop shop" in Burlington, Vermont, from an anonymous suggestion on their flavor suggestion board. In 1991, Ben & Jerry's began selling pints of the flavor which quickly became popular with consumers. By 1992, chocolate chip cookie dough accounted for 20 percent of the company's total ice cream sales, and other ice cream manufacturers such as Dreyer's and Mrs. Fields began making their own versions of the flavor

An oatmeal raisin cookie is a type of drop cookie made from an oatmeal-based dough with raisins. Its ingredients also typically include

flour sugar, eggs salt , and spices When the cookies were becoming prominent in the United States in the early 1900s, they came to be known as a

health food because of the fiber and vitamins from the oatmeal and raisins.

Depending on how many raisins or oats are added, the fat and fiber content may not be much different either.Chocolate ice cream ice cream with natural or artificial chocolate flavoring.
