Product Info 產品資訊
Animal-free dairy describes the protein in our product. The non-animal whey protein is identical to what’s in cow's milk but made without using a single animal in the process. Animal-free dairy is vegan (as are all the other ingredients we use in our products!).
We’re big fans of this animal-free dairy protein because it ensures you get all the creamy, delicious taste and texture of ice cream, without animals, and less impact on the earth.
SCIENCE! We use Perfect Day’s non-animal whey protein to make Ice Age! Ice Cream. Non-animal whey protein is the same whey you’d find in cow’s milk, except zero cows are involved.
How?! The bovine whey protein gene (stay with us) was digitized in an open-source database (like an e-book!). Microflora are given the blueprint of the gene sequence and then fermented in a tank along with some plant sugars (it’s just like brewing beer!).
The result? A non-animal whey protein. We then use it to make Ice Age! animal-free DAIRY ice cream that’s just as creamy + dreamy as the real thing — and uses less land, water, and energy than dairy production. It’s planet-positive ice cream.
科學﹗我們使用Perfect Day的無動物性乳清蛋白製造Ice Age!雪糕。無動物性乳清蛋白與牛奶中的乳清蛋白成份一樣，只是不來是牛隻。如何做到？ 已數碼化的牛奶乳清蛋白基因，可在共源數據庫找到，透過微生物群釋出基因序列，配合植物糖，展開發酵過程，如釀啤酒般，製造出乳清蛋白。 然後，這種毋需牛隻的奶蛋白，就可用來製造Ice Age！「無庸牛」雪糕了。美味可口依然，但我們較一般乳製品生產節省了土地、水、能源，讓我們更懂愛地球。
Ice Age! is vegan and contains milk proteins. It’s a paradox! We encourage ice cream eaters who have a milk protein allergy to use the same precautions with Ice Age! that they would take with dairy. (But, reminder - Ice Age! is gloriously lactose free!)
Ice Age！是純素兼含有奶蛋白的產品。如對奶蛋白敏感人士，也應與對待一般乳製品般同樣留心。不過， Ice Age！是不含乳糖的，有乳糖不耐症人士可放心進食。
Great question! The FDA requires a declaration of milk proteins as the non-animal whey protein is molecularly identical to dairy protein. However, the animal-free dairy protein is produced WITHOUT the use of animals, and with zero compromise on taste and nutrition.
Ice Age! does not contain GMOs. The Perfect Day non-animal whey protein we use to make our ice cream comes from microflora, which produce different kinds of protein naturally. The microflora are given the genetic instructions for creating whey protein and go through a fermentation process along with some plant sugars (just like brewing beer!). Afterwards, the modified microflora is filtered out, leaving only pure, non-animal whey protein. In other words, genetic engineering is part of the Perfect Day process (think of the microflora as mini protein factories), but no GMOs are present in the resulting non-animal whey protein we use to make our ice cream.
Ice Age！不含基因改造。 我們使用Perfect Day 無動物性乳清蛋白製造雪糕，源自微生物群，可自然生產多種蛋白。 微生物群會作出基因指示，製造乳清蛋白，配合植物糖，然後進行如釀啤酒般的發酵過程。 其後， 會篩走微生物群，剩下非動物性的純乳清蛋白。因此，Perfect Day生產過程，涉及基因工程學， 微生物群就如製造蛋白的工廠兵團，但最後用來造雪糕的乳清蛋白，絕不含基因改造。
Large-scale factory farming is terrible for the planet, not to mention the animals. Industrial dairy farming contributes A LOT of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, not to mention the resources needed to produce dairy (eg: it takes 144 gallons of water to produce ONE gallon of milk in the US). To meet the demand for delicious dairy, food companies often rely on factory farms to meet demand - but we think there's a better way: animal-free dairy has less impact on the planet. We use science + nature to make (delicious!) ice cream that uses less water, land, and energy (and zero animals). We’re currently working on a third-party review of our entire supply chain that will show the animal-free impact difference. We’ll also use that information to improve everything we possibly can about our operations and supply chain - because every piece of the puzzle matters.

Ice Age! is lactose free! Lactose and whey are both present in cow’s milk, but the non-animal whey protein ingredient we use is produced through fermentation and is not derived from cow’s milk.
Ice Age! is vegan, lactose-free, hormone-free and cruelty-free – but not dairy-free. The non-animal whey protein we use is molecularly identical to whey protein from cow’s milk, so we encourage ice cream eaters who have a milk protein allergy to take the same precautions they would take with dairy.
