Ice cream is a food that provides an important source of calcium, protein, high energy and other nutrients such as vitamin B2. For this reason ice cream is the appropriate alternative for people of all ages, and even more for children, adolescents, the elderly and pregnant women.
In the case of calcium, the ice cream is an excellent option to complete the recommended daily amounts of this mineral, especially for those people who have the habit to avoid taking minerals through other dairy products or vegetables. Ice cream, and especially handcrafted or homemade ice cream, is perfect because almost everybody likes ist.
