Gelato is Italian for ice cream. So is gelato simply ice cream with a fancy name? No. It's much more delicious! Ice cream has a minimum of 10 percent fat, gelato is made with a greater proportion of whole milk to cream, so it contains more like five to seven percent fat. Gelato is churned at a slower speed than ice cream, so it's denser because not as much air is whipped into the mixture. Gelato contains about 25 to 30 percent air, while ice cream can contain as much as 50 percent air. As for that wonderful, rich flavour, since there's not as much fat in gelato, it doesn't coat the mouth in the same way. So the flavours are much more intense.
