The Scoop on Gelato - Part 2

“It’s so sublime, it’s a wonder it’s not illegal.”

-Voltaire

 

Why it’s NOT ice cream & what you want to look for…

Since it’s made with milk and not cream, there is less butterfat (4-8% vs/ 14% for ice cream) which is why it’s so creamy-melt-in-your-mouth deliziòso!

Although it is prohibited by E.U. regulations to increase the volume with added water or “fluffing with air” (aka “overrun), you will see fluffy mounds of brightly colored gelato often topped with an identifying fruit or ingredient (ex; strawberries on strawberry gelato, etc.).

Warning: Gelato that is too fluffy and/or too colorful may have eye appeal but it’s not your best choice.
