Boogie Down Bites: Allergen-free ice cream

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

An ice cream factory in Hunts Point is making special treats for customers with food allergies.

Marc Roth, owner of "Dessert Corp," says he first opened an ice cream store in Manhattan two years ago. He says he then opened up a factory in the Bronx last year to make treats that are made without common food allergy ingredients such as nuts, eggs and sesame.

"We realized that there's a tremendous need, there's no competition, there's nobody else out there doing," Roth says.

The facility has 10 employees ensuring no wrong or harmful ingredients are accidently added while the ice cream is churned, poured and frozen.

Customers can choose from seven different allergy-free flavors that come in cups, pints and bars.

Roth says the his ice cream is also available at about 2,000 grocery stores across the U.S.
