New Low GI Ice-Cream hits shelves in Western Cape just in time for the heatwave

Wilfredo's has been extensively tested by the Low GI Foundation and been approved by Diabetes South Africa. Made purely with natural ingredients and dairy products - no vegetable fat is used – it is the ideal treat for slimmers, diabetics and children with ADHD – in fact for anyone wanting to follow a healthy lifestyle.
Extensive tests show there is no sugar spike or crash for anyone enjoying a daily tub of Wilfredo's. The dessert is high in calcium, kind to teeth, contains no colourants and provides sustained energy. It is also Halaal approved.
Liesbet Delport a dietitian and founder member of the GI Foundation of South Africa explains that GI is a ranking from 1 to 100 which measures the effect of a food on your blood-glucose level over the two hours after the food is eaten.
According to the foundation, foods with GI values of 55 or below could aid in the management of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke as they digest easily and are absorbed into the body slowly.
“Research has shown that very high glucose levels after meals, called glucose spikes, are damaging to our arteries and various blood vessels and they promote far too much insulin,” Delport says.
“Eating low-GI foods means you avoid those spikes and dramatic falls in blood-glucose so you get a much steadier stream of energy. You, therefore, reduce your risk of heart disease and other chronic diseases that are implicated by those blood-glucose fluctuations.”
Wilfredo's is available at the Wellness Warehouse and at selected branches of the Food Lover's Market and Kuaui in the Cape Town area with plans afoot to market the product nationally.
