Been wondering, what's the difference between ice cream and gelatto. I both eat and loves it so much. I could not see the difference between the two.

Regular ice cream is made with full cream milk whilst Gelato is made with skimmed milk and slightly less sugar than ice cream, it contains a minimum of 4 percent milk fat. So it has less calories! Gelato is similar to sorbet but sorbet contains no dairy at all. I feel that Gelato icecream is more icey than regular icecream and I geuss because of the less milk fat content... Also Gelato has more brighter coloring...

Hey zia024! I'm glad you're able to start a new discussion! I can't remember the last time I ate Gelatto. And I don't see the difference either. But maybe Gelatto is creamier. From the way it looks, it looks softer than the normal ice cream. I don't know, let's see what the others have to say. :)

Hi! pinkpiglet. Thanks for helping me out. The last time i ate gelatto was last Saturday at Greenbelt and I really can't distinguished the difference within the two. But your right, gelatto is a little bit creamier than regular soft ice cream.

The word sounds very Italian - I guess it is a made after a recipe used in Italy. Might be a bit like pizza that has spread around the world..
