Gelato Facts

Gelato is less fat than ice cream, contains less air, and is served at a higher temperature. Consequently gelato has a richer flavor than ice cream. For more details of the difference between the two, see the section Gelato or Ice Cream? in the www.gelatouniversity.com website.

• According to research done by Eurisko in 2008 for the Institute of Italian Gelato, Gelato is liked by 95% of the population. 39% of those interviewed stated that they eat it often, 37% eat it sometimes, and only 19% said they rarely eat it.
