What is Gelato?


We are glad you asked! Gelato simply means frozen in Italian. Italian ice cream, or Gelato, is a premium ice cream which differs from Industrial-style (grocery store) ice cream in three distinct ways: ingredients, air content and dairy. These differences result in Gelato providing a much richer, creamier taste than ice cream First, Gelato is primarily made from milk instead of cream, and combined with other flavorings to produce a low-fat ice cream style product. On average, the total fat content in Gelato varies from 6 to 10 percent. Industrial ice cream contains on average 14 to 24 percent. Gelato contains 50 to 60 percent less fat than ice cream. Second, Gelato has a much higher density than ice cream. Ice cream is produced by mixing cream, milk and sugar, then adding air. Manufacturers add air to ice cream because it nearly doubles the quantity of their product. No air is added to Gelato. The result is a higher quality dessert with a richer, creamier taste. Third, Gelato is served slightly warmer than ice cream. While both Gelato and ice cream are served well below the freezing temperature of 32 degrees Fahrenheit, Gelato is served 10 to 15 degrees warmer than ice cream. Gelato is produced using generous quantities of the best ingredients. Among our flavors, you will easily recognize real vanilla extracts, real fruits and the finest chocolates. The denseness of Gelato and the natural ingredients aid in bringing out the intense flavorings. Anyone who has tasted Gelato will tell you that it is undoubtedly one of life’s perfect pleasures.
