What is Gelato
Gelato is the generic word for Ice Cream in Italian.
Though made from the same ingredients as Ice Cream viz., milk, cream, sugar and stabilizer, gelato and ice Cream are distinctively different.
Gelato is made from natural ingredients with no synthetic flavors or essences.
Gelato is a nutritious food as it contains protein, calcium, carbohydrates, minerals, vitamin A, and almost all the B group vitamins.
. Gelato has a lower fat content of approx. 4 per cent as compared to natural Italian ice cream which is higher at 10 percent or more.
Gelato has only 35 per cent over run which means it has more product and less air content thus yielding a denser, more compact silky consistency as compared to industrial ice cream which has an 80 -100 per cent over run. It is sold by weight and not by volume.
It is freshly-made daily to ensure that it is always fresh unlike industrial ice cream, which is manufactured and stored indefinitely.
It is handmade and therefore it is an artisan high end gourmet product.
It is served with a spatula at a higher temperature which does not sting the mouth.
Gelato is 100% vegetarian
Gelato has redefined the ice cream eating culture world wide. Because it is a natural, fresher and a more nutritious, low fat version of industrial ice cream, people are substituting it and indulging in it instead of Ice Cream
Gelato generically has a universal audience- it is consumed by a small child who could be a year old or even an adult that is 90 yrs of age. It is loved by all from all walks of life! Moreover, it is a healthier option to ice cream and nowadays nearly everybody is health conscious!
Gelato is now an international trend- it is the second most important after espresso and cappuccino. There are several gelato shops across the USA, successful gelato franchise chains in Australia, the Far and Middle-East, most of Western and Eastern Europe. The gelato culture is spreading very quickly around the globe and in India it is a brand new concept in an untouched, virgin market.
