"Churn out the Ice Cream: a young teen with celiac disease starts an Ice Cream Company in adulthood"
Jessica "Jessy" Gartenstein is the co-founder of Frönen
When Jessy was thirteen, she was diagnosed with celiac disease and dairy sensitivity. Limited to a gluten-free and dairy-free diet, she longed for a healthy and tasty non-dairy ice cream. Alternatives packed with refined sugar, gums, “natural” flavors, and artificial ingredients left her feeling sick. Lighter options diluted with water lacked flavor and contained sugar alcohols that upset her stomach even more.
By the time Jessy was in college, she was losing hope with dairy-free desserts. Determined to not let food allergies restrict one of life’s greatest joys, she and Erik decided to raise their spoons and experiment in the kitchen. The two perfected Frönen – an irresistible dessert that’s made with a base of fruit, organic honey, and coconut cream. Frönen is available in SCD friendly flavors like Banana Coconut, Strawberry, Madagascar Vanilla, and Peanut Butter. Frönen is sold in retailers in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, West Coast, and will soon be launching on the East Coast.
