If you like or do NOT like the flavor of coconut, you will love our nice cream because Coconut is undetectable in most of our flavors--instead, the plant-based flavors dominate.
Unlike other brands of coconut ice cream on the market, we do not use Sodium Metabisuflite in our cold-pressed coconut cream. The coconut cream and coconut milk industry uses Sodium Metabisulfite (a bleaching chemical preservative), in the pasteurization process, which is a standard industry practice. The FDA does not legally require sodium metabisulfite to be listed in a product’s ingredients if there are 10 parts per million or fewer of the preservative in the product. Many people are allergic to sulfites and do not know that sodium metabisulfite is used in coconut products, including non-dairy, coconut desserts. However, there is evidence that sodium metabisulfite can cause both gastrointestinal and hormonal issues in humans and animals. Due to our food-justice values, we will never use sodium metabisulfite or other preservatives.
We are the emerging leader, harnessing the power of RAW, unpasteurized coconut cream. We are re-building healthier, sustainable food models and systems. With food justice and self-determination, kube nice cream has invented the appropriate, patent-pending, commercial food grade coconut scraper device to shred mature coconuts safely and efficiently.
