Gelato vs Ice Cream: Which are the Differences

Exploring the Differences between Gelato and Ice Cream

Sometimes, figuring out whether you’re enjoying a genuine Italian gelato or an ice cream can be a bit tricky.

Here are 5 simple tips to recognise the difference:

  1. Ingredients: Gelato has more milk than cream, resulting in lower fat content. On the other hand, ice cream contains more cream and butterfat, making it heavier.
  2. Air Incorporation: Gelato has less air incorporated, giving it a natural shape. Ice cream, however, has more air incorporated, resulting in a whipped shape.
  3. Colour: Gelato maintains a natural colour without the use of dyes, while ice cream often features artificial and vivid colours due to the inclusion of colourants.
  4. Serving Temperature: Gelato is served slightly warmer for a creamier texture, whereas ice cream is served colder, presenting a grainy texture.
  5. Flavour Intensity: Gelato has more intense flavours, whereas ice cream tends to have less intense ones.
