What is gelato?

January 4, 2007

Billed as a healthier and tastier alternative to ice-cream, gelato means “frozen” in Italian. Unlike ice-cream, which is made using a substantial amount of cream, gelato is made using milk. In addition, when ice-cream is being made, air is pumped into it as it is being frozen, almost doubling the ice cream volume. Gelato-making involves less air buildup and therefore gelato is denser than ice cream. The lack (or lesser amounts) of fat, as well as the high density, make the gelato a more tasty product when compared to regular ice cream.

Sorbettos are made without milk and are usually fruit flavoured.
