Plant-based ice cream is ice cream that is completely free of animal products such as egg and milk i.e. made with no animal products whatsoever. The ice cream base is made up of various plant-based milk such as coconut milk and house-made cashew milk. The healthy fats from these plant milk lend themselves wonderfully to a creamy texture that's just as delicious as dairy ice cream. Growing number of lactose intolerant consumers is a key factor driving the market growth. In addition, higher protein content in plant-based ice-creams makes them a healthier option among ice-creams. Due to the increasing demand for these ice creams, the producers of plant-based ice-creams are focused on improving the taste of these ice-creams by introducing the consumers to a wide variety of flavors. High processing charges are associated with the preparation of plant-based ice creams, as most of the raw materials are processed and formulated through different high-energy consuming machinery. Moreover, the most frequently used milk in plant-based ice creams is soya milk, which has some adverse effects. For instance, soy milk can cause allergies in some people. Its taste is also not preferred among consumers. According to Cornell University, there is an increased risk of breast cancer in some women who consume soy food and most of plant-based ice cream manufacturers use soy milk as their major creaming ingredient. This particular factor may act against market growth.
