What we did: We lab-tested eight brands of vanilla ice cream to see how they compare for sugar and fat content. We also checked whether they were safe for consumption.Â ThoseÂ thatÂ passedÂ industry safety standards were blind tasted by our expert panel.
The eight brands were â€“ Amul, Baskin-Robbins, Havmor, Kwality Walls, London Dairy, Vadilal, Dairy Den and Vimal.
Fat and sugar: Comparisons were made for the six brands that passed Â the microbiologyÂ tests. AmulÂ Â Â Vanilla, Royale contained the highest fat at 12.9gÂ per 100g (approximately one serving). Interestingly, Vadilal Vanilla Classic had the highest sugar but the lowest fat.Â Baskin-Robbins had the lowest sugar. It is difficult for us to tell youÂ whichÂ brandÂ toÂ choose,Â butÂ as a thumb ruleÂ consumers who are diabetic should go for Baskin-Robbins while those who have high cholesterol should pick Vadilal.
