What’s is Gelato, Sorbet, and Granita?
Not all frozen treats are created equal.
“Gelato” means “ice cream” in Italian. But the two are not the same. While gelato has a custard base like its American cousin, it also contains less milk fat and has less air churned into it during freezing, which makes its texture denser. Since it has less cold fat that coats the tongue and gets in the way of tasting things, Gelato’s flavours come through directly and quickly then melt away, leaving a clean mouth. Also, because gelato is traditionally served at a slightly warmer temperature than ice cream, it feels a bit softer and looks glossier.
This frozen delight contains just fruit and sugar—no dairy. Because there is no use of animal produce in the making, Sorbets are suitable for Vegans. It’s often churned in an ice cream maker, which makes it scoopable but not creamy. Restaurants use sorbet as a palette cleanser during multi-course meals because its intense fruit flavor is extra refreshing.
GRANITA(AKA ITALIAN ICE)
Like sorbet, granitas are often made from a puree of fruit, sugar, and water. The difference is in their texture. Unlike sorbets, which are smooth-churned, granita purees are scraped repeatedly during the freezing process, loosening their structure into icy flakes.
