- The primary difference between gelato and ice cream is the absence of air incorporated. The volume of your beloved ice cream is made up of 50% air. On the other hand, gelato has somewhere between 20% – 35% air.
- Gelato has only 4%-8% butterfat in it whereas ice cream has around 14% of it. Doesn’t it seem a bit paradoxical when gelato tastes way creamier than regular ice cream and still has less fat?
- Finally the sugar content is closely monitored and slightly lowered than ice cream, when balanced with the water content. Sugar serves both as sweetener as well as anti-freeze in gelato. We, at Gelatogourmet, are incredibly proud of the ingredients used to make the handcrafted gelato. Our cheese is made from the milk of Calder Dairy cows; it serves as our gelato base. We have a small batch of flavours; pasteurization takes place in small batches as well.
