GELATO, A HEALTHIER CHOICE.
Artisan gelato’s richer taste and more luxurious texture belies the fact that it’s a healthier option compared to regular ice cream. Here are some fun facts to think about when choosing between gelato and ice cream.
Gelato contains on average half the calories of regular ice cream.
American ice cream contains up to 60% more air than gelato does.
Ice cream is served at between 0 and 10 degrees Fahrenheit; whereas gelato is served at between 7 and 15 degrees Fahrenheit. This means that gelato doesn’t numb the mouth as much as ice cream, allowing the taste buds a fuller flavor experience.
Because gelato is richer, creamier, and has less air than ice cream, you don’t have to eat as much to feel satisfied.
Gelato is served with a paddle which is better designed to work with the creamier texture of gelato than the traditional ice cream scoop.
GELATO, AN HISTORICAL TREAT.
The word “gelato” comes from the Latin word “gelatus” meaning “frozen.” Ancient Asians and Egyptians made the earliest forms of gelato by combining snow with honey and fruit. This cold treat eventually made its way to Sicily, where it was transformed into a luxuriously creamy dish.
Gelato’s modern incarnation flourished during the Italian Renaissance period, spreading throughout Europe and gaining popularity wherever it was found.
Today, ice cream can be found all over the world, but gelato remains in a class of its own. Gelato chefs remain committed to a tradition of using only the highest quality ingredients, and gelato making remains a true art form.
