Ice cream: do you prefer cream or sorbets? When choosing, are you guided by the taste or the number of calories? Or maybe you belong to the group of people who cannot resist sweet topping and whipped cream? See how many calories there are ice cream, sorbets and ice cream from the machine.

A scoop of ice creamweighs about 50 g. Most ice cream parlors, however, do not provide the exact weight of an ice ball, explaining it with a professional secret. However, we know how many calories are in 100 g of each type of ice cream.

How many calories does ice cream have?

Calories in ice cream (100 g of product):

  • sorbets - approx. 50 kcal;
  • milk-fruit ice cream - approx. 120 kcal;
  • ice cream from the machine - approx. 135 kcal;
  • vanilla ice cream - approx. 140 kcal;

Sorbets or water ice cream

Sorbets are less fattening than milk ice cream. However, can we conclude that they are he althier? They contain water, glucose syrups, fruit juices or syrups and flavors. Compared to milk ice cream, sorbets contain not only less calories, but also less nutrients. In most sorbets available on the market, fruit or fruit juices constitute only a dozen or so percent of the total composition, the rest is water and additional ingredients. In addition, the calories in sugars and glucose syrups come from simple carbohydrates, which should not be consumed in large amounts while losing weight.

The high content of flavor and color enhancing substances doubtfully proves the he alth benefits of sorbets. We can only recommend those prepared by hand - by freezing fruit juice.

Ice cream - do they have nutritional value?

Most cream ice cream, contrary to logic, is made from milk. Powdered milk is used on an industrial scale, but it does not mean that it is less valuable. In the composition of real ice cream, we should find eggs, cream, sugar, milk and fruit.

High calcium content in ice cream has a positive effect on bones, and lactose contained in milk has a positive effect on the microflora, facilitating the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. Ice cream with fruit and fruit juices is a source of vitamins.

When choosing ice cream, read the labels and choose a product that does not contain hydrogenated vegetable fat and chemical additives.

Diet ice cream? Yes, but only those withoutadditives

If you are thinking about eating ice cream, because you are meticulously counting calories, get ready, but for dessert without any additives. Peanuts, dried fruit, caramel or chocolate toppings and whipped cream will turn ice cream into calorie bombs. Avoid such combinations if you really keep your body in line, because ice cream with toppings will be up to 100 kilocalories heavier.
