Gelato is superior to ice-cream in every way. Both use cream, milk and sugar, however, gelato uses more whole milk and significantly less butterfat (heavy cream) than American ice-cream. Most ice-creams consist of 15-25% butterfat, while gelato ranges anywhere from 4-9%. Less air is present during the freezing process when creating gelato. It is mixed at a slower speed in our batch freezer. Gelato is richer, creamier and has a more desirable texture, giving you a happy camper palate!
