WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GELATO AND ICE CREAM?
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ARGENTINE AND ITALIAN GELATO?
Argentina had many Italian immigrants who came to the country at the end of the 1800s. They brought their knowledge of gelato production from Italy and, together with the local Argentine dairy industry, created Argentine gelato. Argentine gelato is comprised of different and unique flavors to its Italian counterpart and is served in a special “swirl.” Here is a little bit of the history of Argentine gelato.
WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN YOUR GELATO/SORBET?
Please find our list of ingredients here.
HOW CAN I FIND OUT ABOUT NUTS AND OTHER ALLERGENS IN YOUR GELATO?
Please find our allergy statement here.
IS YOUR GELATO/SORBET VEGAN?
Our gelatos are made with homogenized cow milk and are not considered vegan.
DOES YOUR GELATO/SORBET CONTAIN HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP?
None of our gelato/sorbets do not contain high fructose corn syrup.
CAN CHILDREN EAT THE GELATO THAT HAS ALCOHOL IN IT? WHAT IS THE ALCOHOL CONTENT OF FRÍO FLAVORS?
We have several flavors that are made with real alcohol beverages such as wine, vodka, rum, and bourbon, however any alcohol content is burned off during our pasteurization process.. Therefore, there is no alcohol in any of our flavors to get a person (of any body mass) feeling its effects.
WHAT ARE FRÍO’S MOST ARGENTINE FLAVORS?
SOME OF YOUR FLAVORS HAVE VODKA, WHISKEY OR BOURBON AS INGREDIENTS WHICH ARE MADE FROM WHEAT, BARLEY AND RYE. HOW CAN THIS BE IF YOUR PRODUCTS ARE GLUTEN-FREE?
According to the National Institutes of Health's Celiac Disease Awareness Campaign, distilled alcohol is inherently gluten-free. This includes gin, vodka, scotch whisky, and rye whiskey. Although whiskeys are derived from wheat, barley, or rye, the distilling process removes the gluten proteins.
DO ANY OF YOUR GELATOS/SORBETS HAVE EGG IN THEM?
While many frozen dessert manufacturers use eggs in their recipes, only two FRÍO Gelato flavors contain eggs: sambayón (egg custard and marsala wine) and any chocolate-based gelatos (our chocolate sorbet does not contain eggs!). All other gelato flavors are egg-free and none of the sorbets contain egg.
