Doggy Gelato has been created for dogs and dog owners to share the joy of real Italian artisan gelato. Carefully selecting raw materials which contribute to the health of dogs (and their owners). Is it not fun to both enjoy a gelato at the same time? Our ingredients are pure and do not have any artificial flavoring or coloring. Choose from three base flavors: goat milk, whole yogurt or broth. We add seasonal fruit and veggies.
So, what’s the difference between ice cream and gelato? First of all, there is more air in ice cream. Also, typically, gelato has less fat and less sugar. Gelato is made with fresh materials, batch after batch. You might say: gelato has just more flavor than ice cream.
Because traditional table sugar is not recommended for dogs to consume, we use honey and fruit sugar, also called fructose (and not to be mistaken for high-fructose corn syrup).
The fat component in (human) gelato is coming from heavy cream. Since many dogs are sensitive for lactose, or even lactose intolerant, we do not use cow milk or cream from cow milk. Cream is replaced by a combination of sunflower oil and coconut oil.
Our dog gelato consists further of inulin, a dietary fiber used in many food applications and having positive effects when dosed in low concentrations. Also, proteins are added as whey protein concentrate.
