Q: What's the differece between soft ice cream and gelato?

A: Ice cream and gelato are churned differently, which directly affects the amount of air incorporated into the mixture. Ice cream is churned faster and harder, which gives it significantly more air bubbles. In fact, some brands of ice cream have as much as 50 percent air content. Gelato is churned much slower than ice cream, which gives it a denser texture and sometimes stronger, concentrated flavors.

Gelato is served slightly warmer than ice cream, which melts if served at the same temperature. In general, ice cream is richer and creamier than gelato. Gelato tends to have a texture that is soft yet still dense with a unique elasticity. While ice cream and gelato can both have strong, intense flavors, the way they come across differs. Gelato tends to have an immediate strong flavor that melts away quickly, whereas the heavy cream in ice cream coats the mouth, which mellows and slows the flavors.
