Whether it is a hot summer day or the holiday season, ice cream and gelato are well-loved frozen desserts enjoyed by people of any age (although some consider gelato to be the "grown-up" version of ice cream)
Gelato typically has a much lower fat content, at around 4–9% fat.
Gelato is much silkier in texture and a bit denser than ice cream. This denseness allows gelato to pack much more flavor than traditional ice cream. Gelato also usually takes its flavors from natural sources.
Gelato contains about 25 to 30 percent air, while ice cream can contain as much as 50 percent air.
