What Is Gelato?

Gelato is a frozen treat from Italy; the word “gelato” actually means “ice cream” in Italian. Like many of Italy’s lovely specialties, you can now enjoy delicious Gelato in Downey.

Differences between Gelato and Ice cream


Gelato and ice cream are creamy frozen treats containing milk, cream, sugar, and flavorings. However, the two should be distinct. Among other differences, they’re rooted in two unique cultural traditions and contain different amounts of milk fat.

Another flavor enhancer: Italian Gelato is served at 10 to 20 degrees F, while ice is served at 6 to 10 degrees F because it’s easiest to scoop in this range. We’re better able to taste warmer foods; this rule holds for Gelato.

Authentic Italian Gelato isn’t scooped like ice cream; it’s served with a spade.

What is better for you, Gelato or Ice cream?


Gelato typically offers fewer calories, less sugar, and lower fat content per serving than ice cream. The standard 3.5 oz. A serving of vanilla gelato contains 90 calories and 3 grams of fat, compared to 125 calories and 7 grams of fat in the average vanilla ice cream.

Ice cream has more cream than milk, whereas gelato, on the other hand, has more milk than cream; this is a highly relevant difference because it alters its flavor profile and nutritional attributes. Moreover, ice cream often includes egg yolks to add texture, spiking up the amount of calories.

The cream is fatter than milk, making ice cream way less healthy compared to gelato. According to the FDA (the National Food and Drug Administration), ice cream is a frozen dessert with at least 10% of calories from fats. But usually, the fat is at least 15-20%, up to 25%.

On the other hand, gelato usually stays in a 5-7% fat range, making it easier to digest and overall better for your health.
