During the infancy of gelato-making, artisans of the revered dessert created standard recipes utilizing egg yolks as the main stabilizer, and other raw ingredients such as sugar and milk – or water for sorbetto. Fresh fruits, nuts, chocolate, etc. were then added for flavour. Batching the gelato was the last step where one of the most important ingredients – air – was incorporated in to allow for a dense, smooth, texture. However, with time, most processes become more refined.
Today, the production of new technology and innovative ingredient solutions, such as those produced and manufactured by PreGel, have helped to streamline the initially time-consuming process of making artisanal gelato. Aside from mechanized pasteurizers, batch freezers, and display cases to help prolong its shelf life, gelato ingredients have also become more sophisticated.
