Gelato VS Ice Cream: What’s Really the Difference?

Monday, December 2nd, 2013

As you enjoy eating every teaspoonful of your gelato and your friend is also taking pleasure in gobbling her ice cream, does it ever cross your mind what is the difference of the two? Although gelato is just the Italian term for ice cream, there is really a difference between the two of them.

Because there are a lot of people in this world who are so inquisitive about a lot of things in his world, just in case thinking about their difference is bugging you, here are the three main factors that make gelato, gelato and ice cream as ice cream.

icecream vs gelato

• Temperature

Wonder how gelato keeps its supple texture? The secret is in its serving temperature. A gelato is always served approximately 15 degrees warmer than the ice cream to preserve its pliant texture. Ice cream, on the other hand, is always served at -12.2 degrees Celsius to prevent it from being runny and to keep speedy melting at bay.

• Churning

Gelato is way thicker than ice cream it is because its swirling process is at a much slower rate compared to the latter. Ice cream is churned at a speedy tempo making it fleecier and soupier than gelato.

• Fat content

Good news to those who are watching their weight: Gelato contains less fat than ice cream. It uses less of the egg yolks and it uses milk instead of cream. This is what makes gelato milky and ice cream creamy. So if you are in a strict low fat diet to maintain your good figure, you can indulge in gelato if your ice cream craving starts to kick in.

Get to Know the Varying Types of Gelato

Saturday, November 30th, 2013

When you finally get the answer to the mind boggling question you have in mind about the difference between a gelato and an ice cream, you jump in to another query: What are the types of gelato? Unfortunately, yes, you are not only asking for the different kinds of flavor gelato have.

If that is the question, it will be very easy to answer because well, just like ice cream, gelato has a myriad of flavors to choose from. You name it. But since flavor is not what some people mean when they ask about “type” of gelato, it is definitely a little serious inquiry,

So for those who are wondering what the types of gelato are (if there are) aside from ‘types of flavor’, here is a list of it.

Basically, gelato just means ice cream; it’s just the Italian counterpart of the English word. So when you are asking for the varying kinds of gelato, you are asking for the different types of ice cream too.

Pasteurized Gelato

Since gelato uses milk than cream, technically, milk is the main ingredient of gelato. Gelato makers have the choice regarding the kind of milk they will use in making. It can be pasteurized or not. Most of the time, gelato makers would usually use pasteurized milk and therefore pasteurized gelato is more popular than unpasteurized one.

Unpasteurized Gelato

Of course there is a distinction with regards to the taste of a gelato which uses unpasteurized milk than pasteurized one. It tastes milkier and yes, more delectable maybe because of the fact that unpasteurized cow’s milk means that it didn’t undergo any process of sterilizing and basically it is fresh from the cow.

Soya Gelato

For those who love to eat gelatos but are keeping an eye to their cholesterol level and sugar level, this one is the best for you. Soya gelato does not contain cholesterol because all of its components come from fruits and vegetables. It also does not have any added sugar. Good for diabetics. In addition, soya gelato is rich in protein, iron and other important minerals which can be beneficial to your health. You don’t have to worry a thing about its taste; it is as milky and tasty just like that regular gelato.

Gelato is a perfect dessert after a mouthwatering lunch or dinner with spitroast. Surely, you can get gelatos in some ice cream bar nearby. But how about spitroast? Want it delivered right at your doorstep? Then let St George District Spit Roast Catering do it all for you.

Why Desserts are Usually Served Last during Parties in Sydney?

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

Do you ever wonder why desserts are often served last in most parties in Sydney and even in other countries? This practice has been followed for centuries now. Dessert is defined as the last course of a meal. It can be fruits, cakes, cookies, ice cream and anything sweet. Basically, it comes from the word dessevir, a French word that means to clear the table.

There are two reasons why desserts are always served last in a meal. Scientifically speaking, eating sweet food at the last part slows down sugar breakdown and absorption, which is one of the main components of desserts. With this, the body is able to regulate the sugar level in the blood preventing the sudden rise. Another reason is that eating dessert last gives you tummy the chance to digest the essential components and nutritional content of the food consumed.

How about eating desserts with the main course?

There are a few people who like to eat desserts with the main course. According to them, doing so allows them to balance the taste of bitter, salty, sour and sweet. Also, this helps them avoid eating more and more sweets that would make them eventually get tired of its taste. Alternating sweets with other flavors and tastes make eating a lot more exciting and engaging.
