(NaturalNews) Anyone up for some tomato-cherry or carrot-orange ice cream?

Haagen-Dazs, normally associated with ice cream flavors such as Black Cherry Amaretto gelato, Mint Chip and Lemon Zest sorbet, is urging folks to get on the healthy eating bandwagon with the introduction of their newest flavors, Tomato-Cherry and Carrot-Orange. Sold under their new flavor series called "Spoon Vege," the flavors will make their debut in Japan on May 12, 2014 where they expect to be sold for about $2.80 for a quarter of a pint.

The flavors and milk fat in the new vegetable ice cream

The tomato cherry flavor contains cherry juice and tomato paste. The carrot orange flavor, which has been touted as a "sophisticated and refreshing twist," contains concentrated carrot and orange juice, orange pulp and orange peel.

It's no secret that foods containing juice from concentrate is synonymous with refined sugars, depleted nutrients and water removal from extraction and evaporation process which often involve the use of chemicals.

The new flavors have about 8.5 percent milk fat, slightly more than half of what most Haagen-Dazs ice cream typically contain.

Beware the lure of healthy-sounding foods

The concept of marketing foods otherwise linked to weight gain, late-night binges and junk food in general is nothing new.

Many potato chip brands showcase images of vegetables on their packaging with healthful sounding flavors that include words such as "garden" and "harvest." Still, as with all food choices, it's important to not be fooled by pretty packaging, healthy wording and to instead remain mindful of the likes of sodium and unhealthy fat content.

In his book, In Defense of Food, author Michael Pollan tells people to choose real foods when shopping rather than reaching for "foodish products." He warns of foods that are masked as very healthy choices when in actuality they are laden with the same additives people are seeking to avoid in the first place. His tip? "Get out of the supermarket whenever possible" because "you won't find any high fructose corn syrup at the farmers' market."

As always, we suggest selecting whole foods that are fresh and 100 percent organic. Pollan's advice is to "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."

Currently, Haagen-Dazs does not have plans to market their vegetable flavored ice creams in the United States.
