Have you got problems with your gelato?

The most common flaws with self-made gelato usually concern either structure or taste. These can be countered with either objective (measurable) or subjective (personal taste) values.

Below is a list of the flaws we encounter most frequently:

  • gelato is too soft, lacks consistency and tends to puddle
  • gelato is too hard, it is difficult to serve or portion out
  • gelato is sandy
  • gelato is rubbery
  • gelato is porous
  • gelato is watery
  • gelato has ice crystals
  • gelato is too heavy, not enough air incorporated
  • gelato is too light, too much air incorporated
  • gelato is too sweet
  • gelato lacks of distinctive flavour

IGTC solutions for gelato flaws!

IGTC – the Italian Gelato Training Center – can help you correct all of the gelato flaws listed above. Thanks to its balanced recipes and ingredients it will enable you to obtain different gelato flavours with the same structure and consistency and to offer similar low-temperature conservation methods

This is extremely important as it means you can exhibit a wide variety of gelato flavours in modern display counters with the same aspect and consistency. The person serving gelato will also have an easier job and the consumer will appreciate and enjoy the product even more as it will be served with exactly the right level of creaminess.

We are very proud of the fact that numerous gelaterias have reported notable increases in both sales and profits after following our technical advice on how to improve their recipes and preparation methods.
