What is the difference between Gelato and Ice Cream ?
and ice cream are creamy, frozen desserts made from ingredients
including dairy and sugar. Gelato was first made in Italy, though there's some confusion over where it originated. Some believe it that it was first made in Sicily while others believe it originated in Florence.
How they’re made
Gelato and ice cream
share three main ingredients — dairy, sugar, and air. The difference lies in their proportions.
Texture and Flavor
Gelato is silkier in texture
and a bit denser than ice cream. This denseness allows gelato to pack more flavor than traditional ice cream. Gelato also usually takes its flavors from natural sources
Ice cream’s typically higher air content makes its texture soft and lightweight
. Although, it's more butterfat than gelato, which means it's may not be as flavorful.
Which should you choose ?
If you prefer a colder, firmer treat with a more buttery mouthfeel, ice cream will satisfy your needs. If you prefer a more concentrated burst of flavor and silkier frozen
treat that’s lower in fat, gelato way to go.
