Frequently asked questions
Some common questions about us
What makes Bessant and Drury's frozen dessert so special?
We are a premium frozen dessert with the texture and appearance of a premium ice-cream, yet totally dairy free. It contains all natural ingredients including real fruit and the main ingredient is the super food coconut. We have no artificial additives, colourings or preservatives added. We were the first coconut milk based dessert in the UK, enjoying all of the health benefits coconut delivers. Bessant & Drury is different from other dairy free desserts as it enjoys a creaminess and texture only associated with traditional ice-cream.
I am dairy intolerant, can I still enjoy this product?
We are suitable for people that suffer from food allergies, intolerances and sensitivities as we are free from gluten, dairy, soya and eggs which are the major sources of these issues.
Why is coconut so good for you?
Coconut milk contains essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that supply a host of benefits to the human body. About a third of coconut flesh is fat (and about 92% of this fat is technically classified as saturated) but it is mostly made up of short and medium-chain fatty acids that are used as energy and not stored as body fat like long-chain fatty acids found in dairy milk.
Does Bessant and Drury's contain cholesterol?
Bessant and Drury's frozen dessert is cholesterol free as coconut does not contain any cholesterol (cholesterol is only in saturated animal fat). It has also been reported that coconut has been shown to improve your cholesterol ratio's by increasing the HDL's (good cholesterol) and therefore reducing the risk of heart disease.
Renowned for its health benefits, coconut milk gives Bessant & Drury's a rich, smooth texture - yet our desserts have less than half the fat of a dairy ice cream.
