Ice cream is a snack that many of us like, it is good and enjoyable when taken with friends. The snack has many health advantages including; it is a good source of fats, a good source of minerals, source of energy for the body. However, it would be unfair for us not to highlight some disadvantages of the same. According to medical sources,https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/ice-cream%23:~:text%3DIce%2520cream%2520has%2520several%2520downsides,and%2520may%2520contain%2520artificial%2520ingredients.&ved=2ahUKEwjRkKHim7P9AhWaUKQEHf16Cm4QFnoECA4QBQ&usg=AOvVaw3TQaBOdMupPQVRFtN_aRRG ice cream has these two disadvantages that should not be ignored.
1. Lots of sugar that is toxic to our bodies
Everyone knows ice cream is full of sugar. Just a 1/2 cup (65 grams) serving of many varieties has 12-24 grams of added sugar. Additives should make up less than 10% of your daily calories, or about 50 grams of sugar per 2,000-calorie diet. So eating one or two small scoops of ice cream can easily put you over that daily limit. Research also shows that too much sugar can lead to several health problems such as heart disease, diabetes and fatty liver.
2. It does not tolerate lactose
Some people may have problems with ice cream because it is made from dairy products and contains lactose, which is milk sugar. People with lactose intolerance do not have enough lactase, the enzyme needed to digest lactose. If they eat ice cream, they can have stomach problems including irritable bowel syndrome. If you cannot digest lactose, you may be able to eat ice cream if you take a lactase supplement. You can also replace the ice cream with a similar frozen food made with soy milk or another milk substitute.
