Is Gelato Vegan?

Let’s start by clearing the air. You have mixed emotions when you hear something is vegan? That’s okay. But, let’s make sure we’re on the same page here. When we say vegan gelato, we mean there wasn’t any dairy involved in the process. But in no way, is that a factor in our decision for the end product. At GIO, our vegan options are gelato first and vegan second.

In other words, we prize getting the perfect flavor and consistency above all else during the gelato-making process. Therefore, that means that if a flavor didn’t need any dairy, then it is also vegan. 

Most of our fruit options are vegan because we use pure water instead of milk to enhance the fruits natural flavor. For example, our passion fruit, raspberry and banana flavors are all just 3 ingredients! Organic fruit, organic cane sugar and water blended to creamy perfection! 

Is Vegan Gelato Healthy?

We make Vegan gelato from a wide array of fresh fruity blends and nut or chocolate flavors that are also good for you! As a result, a lower calorie intake and a smaller chance of upsetting your belly. You’ll be pleasantly surprised to learn that vegan gelato flavors are low in fat and can be up to 20% fewer calories as opposed to their dairy versions.

Want to know the benefits of gelato? Read our article about why gelato is good for you! We believe that picking each fruit in the right season greatly determines our gelato taste, something that we rely heavily on. The seasonality of gelato matters! That’s why we have seasonal flavors, announced at the beginning of each month so we can fully embrace what Mother Nature brings to the table.

“Careful research and respect for each ingredient allow us to offer gelato that is pleasurable from the point of view of taste and aroma. A product aimed at well-being. The choice of working with water and milk alternatives, grants us the true flavor of each ingredient and acts as a study of taste to accompany us in everyday life.”

– Patrizia Pasqualetti, Gelato Chef

How we make Vegan Gelato?

Vegan simply means dairy-free. Containing only the necessities to maintain true flavor and a rich gelato experience. Because gelato is slowly churned over a long period of time, it has the consistency you know and love. But most importantly, this process stays true to the ingredients and differentiates gelato from ice cream. Remember, it’s gelato not ice cream!

Gelato is Our Passion

We’re passionate about gelato and the health benefits of our products. For this reason, we’ve brought over 4 decades of gelato-making wisdom here to the United States to share with you. By hand-picking every ingredient we use, we hope to shape a better tomorrow and a healthier future. 

We believe gelato is the future.
