Petaluma, Calif., May 21, 2013 /3BL Media/ – Straus Family Creamery, known for its high-quality, organic, dairy product line, introduces NuScoop, an innovative snack or meal supplement that provides organic, complete nutrition in the form of a frozen dairy dessert. NuScoop is real, organic food without any artificial or genetically modified ingredients. This first ever “energy bar for ice-cream lovers” is available in 4oz. cups in three introductory flavors, Dutch Chocolate, Strawberry and Coffee, at a suggested retail price of $2.49. It is certified organic and certified kosher.

Made with Straus Family Creamery organic milk and cream, NuScoop delivers delicious ice-cream satisfaction with important nutritional benefits. It serves as a highly nutritious snack for people on-the-go, as post-workout nourishment for athletes, or as a healthy dessert option for families. All of the NuScoop flavors are 50% higher in protein and 50% lower in fat compared to regular ice cream.

Its high nutritional quality comes from entirely organic ingredients such as coconut oil and agave. Its low glycemic index delivers sustained energy rather than create blood-sugar spikes. A complete nutritional profile for NuScoop can be found on the Straus Family Creamery website.

NuScoop is the first ever entirely organic, food-based, nutrient-dense, ice-cream product on the market. The concept and patents for NuScoop originated with the pioneers of organic baby foods, Ron and Arnie Koss, founders of Earth’s Best Baby Food, who approached organic dairyman and creamery owner Albert Straus to develop the product.  

“After years of research and development, we are thrilled to see the idea behind NuScoop come to fruition,” say Ron and Arnie Koss, “Uniting the rich flavors of ice cream with a desirable health profile is a “dream come true” food for millions of health-conscious ice-cream lovers, who no longer have to wrestle with the guilt of indulgence. Finally, ice cream goes healthy!” 

Straus Family Creamery always seeks to provide organic, healthful and wholesome foods to all members of our local community, and does so with a strong commitment to organic integrity and sustainable production practices.
