What is the difference?

MADE FRESH. Gelato is made fresh in small batches to freshness and quality at its best, so that people can experience the real gelato flavors.

Freedom to enjoy gelato without the guilt.

LESS AIR. One of the reasons why gelato has denser texture is because it has less air content. More intense flavor and value for money. Gelato has from 20 till 30% air; Ice cream from 60% and up.

LESS SUGAR, LESS FAT. Gelato used fresh milk as the main ingredient. Ice cream uses cream. 

Gelato is made with mostly milk, so it’s lower in fat content. Lower sugar and more milk, means more calcium for the bones. One of the reasons why gelato is a healthier choice.

Gelato - 4-8% fat; Ice cream - 12-26% fat.

SERVED WARMER. Gelato is served at warmer temperature around -9 till -14C. This temperature keeps the soft and silky texture. It also gives a stronger flavor because your tongue is less numbed by the cold. So you can appreciate the flavor better.

Ice cream serving temperature -18 til -20C. 

ALLERGY FREE, DAIRY FREE. Gelato offers allergy free and dairy free options such as sorbets.

Gelato will not leave you thirsty… just refreshed!
