Gelato is more than Italian ice cream. And our gelato is simply exquisite.
But what exactly is Italian gelato? And what is gelato made of specifically?
To grasp the gelato definition, it is important to first understand the ingredients and craftsmanship used to make this old world classic, Italian dessert.
Let’s start with ingredients: our gelato is made from pure milk, real cream, and one hundred percent natural flavorings. Using only the finest ingredients — Imported from Italy and many locally grown — and absolutely no preservatives or additives, we strive to bring you a satisfying and pure Italian treat, minus the flight to Italy.
Gelato has a lower fat content than ice cream.
Here are some statistics:
CIRCLE An average of 50% less air than Ice Cream.
CIRCLE The typical 3.5 oz. serving of vanilla gelato contains 90 calories and 3 grams of fat, compared to 125 calories and
7 grams of fat in the average vanilla ice cream.
CIRCLE A maximum of 6% Butterfat.
You might be wondering by now does the reduced butterfat in gelato take away from the rich dessert experience?
Gelato is churned slowly — which incorporates less air into the dessert — and served at a slightly warmer temperature, which makes it creamier, silkier, denser, and smoother than its ice cream counterpart. Let us not forget that we make it daily in small batches, using exclusively Italian-made machines, and therefore guarantee the true Italian gelato flavor and quality.
Less fat, fewer calories, and richer flavor. It’s the perfect dessert indulgence.
