Gelato: Milky, Dense, and Melty
Learn how this sweet, creamy treat differs from ice cream with Groupon’s introduction.
Gelato simply means “frozen” in Italian, and it could be thought of as ice cream’s Old World cousin. The two treats share many features—including milk, cream, and sugar—but a few key differences give each its distinct personality.
Lower fat content: Gelato has a higher milk-to-cream ration than ice cream, giving it a fat content of around 5–8%. Ice cream, by comparison, must have a fat content of at least 10% to be called “ice cream” in the United States or “dinner” at the North Pole.
Higher serving temperatures: Because of this greater density, gelato is warmer when served. If it were served at ice cream’s lower temperatures—typically around 10 degrees Fahrenheit—it would be too solid to scoop or eat. Therefore, gelato cases are not kept nearly as cold.
