Is PAPAFiLiPOU® Ice Cream gluten-free?

Although we use much less sugar than most, our regular ice cream is not suitable for a strict diabetic diet. However, we make all natural, fat free, no sugar added ice cream, sweetened with organic Paraguayan stevia, which is suitable for diabetics.
How do you sweeten your ice cream?
Our ice cream and related products are naturally sweetened with pure beet sugar and glucose syrup.
Do you add any colourings to your ice cream?
We never use artificial colourings. We only use natural colourings and only in three flavours. Our mint chocolate chip is naturally coloured with chlorophyll, our rose sherbet and sorbet with red beet extract and our watermelon sorbet with extract of anthocyanins obtained from flowers and vegetables. The colour of the rest of our ice cream and related products comes from the ingredients naturally!
Where does your milk and cream come from?
All of our milk and cream come from local dairy farmers who have pledged not to treat their cows with antibiotics or the synthetic bovine growth hormone, rBGH.
What is “gourmet” ice cream?
Gourmet, super-premium or so-called “designer” ice cream tends to have very low overrun (air content) and high fat content, and the manufacturer uses top-quality, usually natural, ingredients. It is generally characterized by a greater richness and density than non-premium ice creams. Gourmet ice cream is generally marketed by emphasizing quality, flavour selection, texture and brand image. Other types of ice cream are largely marketed on the basis of price.
Do you make gourmet / super-premium ice cream?
Yes, we make the finest, all natural gourmet ice cream available anywhere. We call our super-premium brand Nostalgìa® to convey the distinctive atmosphere of the old-world traditions and craftsmanship to which we remain dedicated.
How do you flavour your chocolate ice cream?
Our chocolate ice cream is flavoured only with premium Dutch process cocoa and chocolate liquor, and pure Madagascar vanilla bean extract.
What is the most popular flavour of PAPAFiLiPOU®?
At what temperature should the ice cream be stored?
Ice cream and related products are best stored at home unopened at -18°C. For extended storage up to the best before date, -25°C.
Is it safe to eat your ice cream after the date on the package?
The date on the package is the best before date. It is not the expiration date of the product. Under proper storage conditions, we expect that our ice cream will maintain peak quality until that date, which is 18 months after the date it was made. This time period is merely a guideline as product can be acceptable much longer if handled properly.
