    What is the difference between ice cream and gelato?

    Is there a texture or ingredient difference?

    Gelato has less fat in the base and less air churned into it during the freezing process.

    Gelato tends to be much more dense than ice cream. Part of this is the fact that ice cream tends to be made more from cream than milk. Gelato has more milk than cream. Ice cream also tends to be whipped. It's churned rapidly, and has more air. Gelato is slow churned, and has less air. So in a way, it is both a texture and an ingredient difference. Personally, I prefer ice cream over Gelato. However, it's what I grew up with, so I'm horribly biased there! smile

    Technically, Gelato is Italian name of icecream.
    But its a different form which has less calories than a normal icecream due to to amount of milk, sugar and air used to made it.
