From the Roman Empire’s Elite to the Medici Family to Louis XIV,
gelato was always a favorite but also considered a premium desert.
Made with fresh whole cow's milk gelato contains between 4% and 8%
butterfat compared to traditional ice cream, which usually ranges
between 10% and 20% butterfat content. The secret to its dense and
smooth texture comes from preparation. Gelato is created by stirring
the ingredients while they are super-cooled at -8°F, breaking up the
forming ice crystals, therefore, chasing the unnecessary air out of the
product which ice cream production does not allow. The intense taste
and creamy texture of gelato make it a premium frozen desert where
the first bite tastes just as good as the last. It is also a tasty source of
energy because of the amount of sugar and protein it contains.
