Less air

New in the freezer case, in what is believed to be the first major-brand gelato, is Haagen-Dazs gelato. It comes in seven flavors.

So how is gelato different from ice cream? It is made with more milk and less cream than ice cream, so it is lower in fat. But, it seems richer than ice cream because much less air is churned into gelato.
