Gelato is the ice cream of Italy – smooth, creamy, and dense because there is no air whipped into it. Our gelato is created with an artisan’s approach. We use only the freshest dairy and the finest nuts, fruits, chocolates and extracts. We have created recipes that are low in sugar to ensure that the flavors of our premium ingredients are tasted in all of their natural beauty.
Gelato is creamier, smoother, silkier and denser than ice cream. Gelato is churned at a much slower rate which in turn incorporates less air making it more dense and creating a satisfying mouthful of flavor.
Gelato contains approximately 60% less fat and calories than American ice cream. Due to lower fat content in gelato, your taste buds can experience flavors more intensely. Gelato doesn't require as much added sugar as ice cream to produce the same sweet flavor.
Gelato is served about 10 to 15 degrees warmer than American ice cream, so your mouth is less numb therefore enhancing the flavor. The serving temperature also makes gelato creamier and smoother than ice cream.
Both gelato and ice cream contain cream, milk and sugar, however authentic gelato uses more milk and less cream than ice cream and generally doesn’t use egg yolks, which are a common ingredient in ice cream.
