Daily Insight: Rise of Gelato

 

 

What is Gelato

Gelato is a combination of whole milk, eggs, sugar, and natural flavoring, usually fresh fruit and sugar. It is similar to ice cream, but lower in fat (ice cream tends to be 10% to 20% fat, while gelato is 8% or less). Gelato is softer and has more intense fruit flavors; like a sorbet, but more creamy, like ice cream. You can let inspiration come from what’s in season: you’ll get the most flavor out of your fruits, thus from your gelato.

 

HOW IS GELATO MADE

Gelato di Crema – The base
2 ½ cups 5% fat cooking cream or any kind of milk you like
5 egg yolks
½ cup granulated sugar
Heat the cream (or milk) until it is beginning to bubble, then cool slightly. Watch it closely if you don’t want to make a big mess because cream and milk reach their boiling point very suddenly.
In a large heatproof bowl, beat the egg yolks and sugar until thick and creamy (about 2 minutes at medium speed). Beat the cooling cream very slowly into the eggs to warm the mixture graduallly.

Put the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water and stir with a wooden spoon until the custard just coats the back of the spoon.
Remove the bowl from the pan and let it cool.

Blend your cooled custard base with the fruit purees (except 1/3 cup cherry puree reserved for the ripple). At this point, you can add 2 tablespoons of any alcohol you think would taste good with your flavors . It’ll help keep your gelato more scoopable.
Pour your fruit custard into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Stop the machine when the gelato is almost firm.

 

BENEFITS

  1. Lower Calories than Ice-cream  Gelato has less fat (6 to 8%) compared to american ice cream (10 to 16 or even 18%). Also the overrun (amount of air injected into the product) is lower (25/35% vs 70/100%).
  2. Flavour: Gelato having lesser fat, provides with much more scope to enjoy the added flavours and fruits and nuts, which is not in case of ice cream.
  3. Wholesome

 

GELATO VS. ICE CREAM

featured-image

The main difference is that gelato is a healthy alternative to ice cream, having less than half the fat. Ice cream can contain up to 22% fat. Mauro’s gelato contains between 0% and 8% fat.

Another difference is that ice cream is generally produced using a limited number of ingredients, Mauro can make gelato out of anything, from avocados to dried fruit to yams to hazelnuts. Just ask him and he will show you how he does it.

 

TRENDS

Entrepreneurship Magazine suggested gelato was "one of the top 10 trends of the next decade". S o when done right, gelato is extremely popular. While ice cream is still 87% of the category according to the National Dairy Association, gelato is experiencing the fastest growth.

Noticeable companies which have launched new Gelato products or planning to launch are:

 

SPRING SHEEP, NEW ZEALAND

TALENTI

Talenti is an American brand of gelato and sorbet, headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Talenti is named after Bernardo Buontalenti, who is credited with inventing gelato

We use only the good stuff. The right stuff. We start with fresh milk, straight from the farm, and fine, pure cane sugar–absolutely never high-fructose corn syrup. We hand-pour the sugar from large sacks, blend in the milk and add the finest ingredients sourced from all around the world to craft our 33 flavors of gelato and sorbetto.

GELATO PETRINI

 Gelato Petrini is the result of tanto amore e passione (a lot of love and passion), a common appreciation for decadent desserts, shared family values, a spoonful of hard work and tons of fun!

In 2011, the Cohens, a family of gelato enthusiasts, joined forces with Chef Mauro Petrini, a well-known and skilled gelatiere with a laboratorio in Boca Raton, Florida, to create Gelato Petrini. Fold in the uniquely skilled talents of the rest of the Gelato Petrini team and an authentic Italian gelato manufacturing company is the result.

Tillamook

If you’re someone who prefers their chocolate with chocolate, we have a gelato for you. And then some. We’ve partnered with craft chocolate maker TCHO® to make a 70% dark chocolate gelato using their sustainably sourced cocoa. Because we make our gelato the Farmstyle way with buttermilk, it’s extra rich and creamy. And as if that wasn’t enough, we’ve added thick chocolate fudge and topped it with pieces of pure dark chocolate.

Vixen Kitchen

Vixen Kitchen Premium Vegan Gelato is a labor of love inspired by my two girls Gigi and Lola. Like most kids, they love sweets. The problem came when I went to read the labels of some of their favorite treats. They were filled with junk created in a chemistry lab instead of a kitchen. So I created this gourmet vegan gelato that I’m confident will satisfy their cravings and my high standards-It’s both delicious and nutritious. It can be enjoyed daily without guilt and its 100% organic! The best part is it’s filled with simple wholesome ingredients even a six-year-old can pronounce. I have created a dessert that tastes amazing, but has the nutritional profile of a super food-densely loaded with minerals, vitamins and healthy fats. Try it for yourself and be amazed!

Daily Insight: Benefits of Camel Milk

 

 

The growing popularity of Camel Milk across the world is disrupting the traditional markets and paving path for new startups and product possibilities.

Experts claim that camel's milk helps fight everything from food allergies and diabetes to autism and cancer. Camel’s milk is fast-gaining popularity in Europe and the US as a new super food. Lower in fat than the milk of its bovine cousins, camel's milk is packed full of nutrients.

Some of the featured companies which are based around camel milk production and camel milk products are

  1. Desert Farms, USA
  2. Camellife.com, Florida
  3. Desert Daughters, Israel

Camel Milk Soap                                                                 Face Cream

                     

 

Camellife.com, Florida

 

The folks at Camel Life decided they wanted to be in the business of camels but also decided that it would take many years to build out a productive stock of camels sufficient to produce the quantity of milk he desired. There isn't enough camel milk currently produced in all of America to supply the demands of Camel Life.

They decided to talk to people in the land of camels….the middle east. After conferring with Saudi’s, Pakistani’s, Emirati’s, and others, they decided to contract with a company in the United Arab Emirates to produce a line a camel milk soap, lip balm, shampoo, and other products under the brand name “Camel Life”.

 

LAVENDER & ROSE GERANIUM CAMEL MILK SOAP

 

 

They are currently manufacturing a fantastic line of luxury Camel Milk Lip Balms in four fragrances: Peppermint, Orange, Strawberry, and Unscented. We will be ready to ship in late August.

And are in the early stages of developing a complete lineup of Camel Milk Liquid Soaps, Foaming Soaps, Shower Gel and and Body Wash. These amazing and innovative products will be ready by late fall, 2016.

What is clean eating?

Clean eating is a phrase you’ve probably heard before from bloggers, authors and trainers. But what is clean eating? Weight trainers promote it as an ideal diet with a special emphasis on lean protein, while vegan bloggers and authors promote a “clean” diet free of meat and dairy — so the definition of a clean eating diet varies.
There is a common thread among clean eating promoters. They believe food should be as close to its natural state as possible, free of preservatives, chemicals, pesticides or dyes. Clean Eating magazine probably expresses it best: “The soul of clean eating is consuming food in its most natural state, or as close to it as possible. It is not a diet; it’s a lifestyle approach to food and its preparation, leading to an improved life – one meal at a time.”
Foods that are often in the diet include:
  • Produce
  • Whole grains
  • Legumes
  • Lean protein
  • Healthy fats
  • Wild salmon
Foods that aren’t on the diet:
  • Genetically modified foods
  • Refined flour and sugar
  • Processed foods
  • Canned foods
  • Junk food

One author who has helped make the clean eating movement popular is Terry Walters, who wrote several books based on the clean eating concept. Her first book, "Clean Food," promoted a vegan diet that centered on dairy-free, meatless dishes based on fresh produce, legumes and grains.

Another popular clean eating author is Tosca Reno, who has written 13 books. Her books center on eating lean proteins in six to seven small meals a day, plus healthy fats, carbohydrates and produce. Her books are written from a body-building perspective, and concentrate on “healthy” lean meats, rather than a vegan diet. Her own story is inspirational, as she began this journey at 40 as an unhappy, unhealthy and overweight woman who decided to change. And change she did! At 53, she is planning on competing in a figure competition, something unimaginable 13 years ago.
While there is a lot of variance in the cleaning eating movement, the focus on eating a diet free from modern chemicals and refined foods remains consistent. And that is a focus I can sign up for as well.
What do you think of the clean eating movement?

Restaurant Social Media Trends for 2013

While Pinterest became a hot piece of real estate in 2012 social media, experts looking further into 2013 see less of a new breakout name than the more effective use of existing platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.

Some emerging areas of social media include geo-location platforms, photo-sharing applications like Instagram and others, and increased use of video, such as YouTube and Vimeo postings, social media consultants said.

“While there are many new emerging platforms that look sexy and hopeful,” said Amanda Hite, co-founder and chief change officer at BTC Revolutions, a Lexington, Ky.-based social-media consultancy, “we strongly believe that restaurant brands need to get good at [using] the platforms their brands, their customers and their employees are on now.”

Sara A. Polito, founder of the Dallas-based Causing the Stir social media agency, agreed, pointing to Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter as the social media platforms restaurants should watch in 2013. "Although these free platforms aren’t new to the social media world, they are, in my opinion, game changers for businesses, especially restaurants," she said.

“I think it’s one of the best social platforms to drive traffic to your website and other social channels," said Polito about Twitter. "It’s much more timely and the best for current events and conversations.”
