Nightfood - Page Hero - FAQ



Nightfood is pretty revolutionary.
We’re not surprised you want to learn more…

Nightfood is formulated by leading sleep and nutrition experts with better sleep in mind. That means we made it our mission to keep sleep disruptive ingredients out, and add in ingredients that are understood to support sleep.

Obviously making our coffee flavor decaf was an easy one, but there are dozens of other nutritional decisions that go into each recipe. We made sleep-friendly choices with regard to our protein, fiber, amino acids, minerals, enzymes, and our all-natural sweeteners (with no erythritol or sucralose), and more.

Nightfood does not contain sleep-aid substances or drugs, and it’s not a dietary supplement. It’s simply a better-for-you and more sleep-friendly choice for the over 100 million Americans that already eat ice cream at night.

Sleep-friendly means we optimized the macro-nutrient and ingredient profiles of our products for better sleep quality.

Everybody knows that what you eat before bed matters.

So, we removed/minimized stuff that’s in most other ice creams that can be sleep disruptive (excess sugar, excess fat, excess calories, caffeine in certain flavors), and we considered the nighttime digestive process and the existing research linking sleep to nutritional choices. From there, we added certain minerals and amino acids that research suggests can support sleep quality.

Long story short, our sleep and nutrition experts were tasked with developing a better ice cream for the tens of millions of Americans that regularly have ice cream in the hours before bed. That’s what we call sleep-friendly.

No. Not at all. What we’re saying is that we know there are millions and millions of people already eating ice cream before bed on any given night. For those people that are going to eat ice cream anyway, Nightfood is a better choice because of its better-for-you and sleep-friendly nutritional profile.

All things being equal, do you think the ice cream you eat before bed should have more sugar? Or less?

More caffeine? Or less?

What about magnesium? Or prebiotic fiber? Well, maybe you don’t know the answers to those, but our team of nutrition and sleep experts do. And we took all of this (and much much more) into account when formulating our ice cream. Something no other brand has ever done.

Our sleep experts worked with the most innovative ice cream R&D lab in the country to make sure Nightfood was better than anything else on the market. The result is a higher protein, higher fiber ice cream with less fat, less sugar, and fewer calories*. We’re extremely proud of the fact that Nightfood contains no Erythritol, no sucralose, or other artificial sweeteners.
