Gelato is Italian artisanal ice cream. The recipes are very close to those we make at home and, therefore, it is considered healthier.
It doesn’t have the same additives and preservatives as traditional ice cream, so it should be consumed within a day. It also doesn’t have hydrogenated fat – the milk fat itself is used to give it creaminess.
Ice cream, in general, is a mixture of milk, fruit (cocoa or other main ingredient) and sugar. But ice cream can also be water-based and have vegetable fat, not just animal fat. But softer or harder texture, it depends on the balance of sugars and the incorporation of air.
