Gelato Verses Sorbet
Chad & I have been joking about the fact that he asks questions to ask questions, and I ask questions to find out an answer. So one came up last night, I wanted to know the exact difference between sorbet and gelato. Gelato's the best, don't ya think?
The big difference between gelato and American style ice cream is in the amount of air that is whipped into the product. (20% air for gelato and up to 60% air for ice cream) The result is a denser and more intensely flavored dessert.
This is a frozen dessert that is made from fruit purée and can include the flavorings of herbs and spices. It is then whipped to lighten its texture. Sorbet contains no milk.
