A trip to Tuscany may not be in the budget for many Americans this summer, but there’s no reason not to delight in a little taste of Italy. Just in time for National Ice Cream Month in July, Sorano Gelato—a dense and silky organic gelato—will tantalize taste buds with its deliciously creamy texture and indulgent flavors. Made with 95 percent USDA Organic ingredients, Sorano Gelato in Pistachio, Chocolate Peanut Butter and Double Dutch Chocolate flavors is now offered exclusively in Whole Foods Market stores in select regions.
No day in Italy is complete without a visit to a gelateria for a cup of gelato. Embodying this indulgent tradition, Sorano Gelato is surprisingly guilt-free, containing just 6 percent butterfat, which is half the fat of most ice cream. Carefully crafted in small batches and mixed slowly to reduce air content and intensify the flavors, Sorano is made with organic milk and cream from cows that have not been treated with genetically modified bovine growth hormone. Sorano Gelato is also free from corn syrup, artificial colors and flavors, gluten and eggs.
In addition to Pistachio, Chocolate Peanut Butter and Double Dutch Chocolate, Sorano Gelato is now available in Limone, Toasted Almond, DiCrema and Coconut flavors in Whole Foods Market stores in Colorado. While ice cream is usually served frozen, Sorano is best enjoyed when the gelato has been allowed to warm up to a soft serve texture.
“There’s something really special about savoring a premium organic gelato,” says Glennise Humphrey, vice president of sales and marketing for Boulder Homemade Inc., the maker of Solano Gelato, and Boulder Ice Cream. “The sweet premium milk and cream we use in our gelato comes from cows that are raised organically in the fresh Rocky Mountain air. We let the cream age for a day so the flavors settle nicely, and the result is a gelato that tastes deliciously homemade, yet richly sophisticated,” she said.
Sorano Gelato is produced at the Boulder Ice Cream facility which is committed to a philosophy of sustainability and green manufacturing practices, including zero waste, pre-cycling, reuse and recycling. The company also offsets 100 percent of its electricity usage with wind power.
Sorano Gelato is available exclusively in select Whole Foods Market stores at a suggested retail price of $4.99/pint.
