Forte Gelato, part of Figo Brands Inc., Greens Farms, Conn., has created what it said is the first ever high-protein gelato. The new frozen dessert comes in 4-ounce cups for easy portion control, according to the company. It’s available in four flavors: vanilla, espresso, ginger and chocolate.
The gelato contains 15 grams of protein, 2.5 grams of fat and 160 calories per 4-ounce cup. It’s made with cage-free egg yolks, rBST-free skim milk, cream and milk protein, and it's sweetened with organic agave nectar.
It’s sold a suggested retail price of $2.69, and can be found in independent markets nationally, including Wegman's, HEB's Central Market and Whole Foods.
