Word of The Day

GELATO...





I wonder what is it?? Is it a jelly-like thing? or a name of a town?? or maybe a brand of apparel??
well, Gelato is actually a type of ice cream with high quality and fetch higher price in the market..
Description : 
Gelato, plural gelati, is Italy's regional variant of ice cream. As such, gelato is made with some of the same ingredients as most other frozen dairy desserts. Milk, cream, various sugars, flavoring including fruit and nut purees and air are the main ingredients.
Gelato differs from ice cream in that it has a lower fat content, 3.5% for gelato versus 10-12% for ice-cream. Gelato has a higher sugar content, 24% for gelato verses 14% for ice cream. Non-fat milk is added as a solid. The sugar content in gelato is balanced with the water content precisely to act as an anti-freeze, that is to prevent the product from freezing solid. The types of sugar used are sucrose, dextrose and invert-sugar to control the apparent sweetness. Typically, gelato and Italian sorbet contain a stabilizing base. Egg yolks are used in yellow custard based gelato flavors, including zabaione and creme caramel.

That's all..just try it once.. :-)
