Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between ice cream and gelato?
Traditionally, gelato’s main ingredient is milk whereas ice cream contains more cream, therefore ice cream products generally contain more fat than gelato. Gelato also contains less air than ice cream and has a denser texture with richer flavour than ice cream.
