Sorbet is a semi-frozen dessert with fruit juice as its main ingredient, and the Italian word sorbetto comes from the Turkish word şerbet, meaning ‘fresh drink’. The history of sorbet dates back to the Roman Empire when the emperor Nero basically invented frozen delivery. He wanted ice to be sourced from the Appennini mountains to be mixed with fruit juice in Rome to make sorbet. Essentially, for the Romans sorbet was so delicious that mountains were moved to make sure they could eat it – and we should always trust the Romans when it comes to pleasure! Traditionally served as a palate cleanser between the different courses, today sorbet is one of the most popular fruity desserts in the world because of its unique melt-in-mouth texture and its refreshing taste. With its high concentration of fruit puree and its traditional Italian recipes, Remeo marks a new step in the history of sorbet and makes it even tastier – we’re pretty sure that Nero would have loved it!
Sorbet is not a kind of ice cream. Both are delicious, but sorbet and ice cream are two frozen desserts that satisfy different tastes and are appropriate for different occasions. But what are the main differences between sorbet and ice cream? First, the ingredients. Sorbet is 100% dairy-free, while ice cream uses milk as one of its main ingredients. Due to the restricted number of ingredients, mostly fruit puree and sugar, sorbet also has fewer calories than ice cream, making it the perfect dessert for those counting their calories. Another difference between ice cream and sorbet is their texture: milk gives ice cream a very creamy consistency, while sorbet is less thick and icier. There is no winner in the competition between sorbet and ice cream, because, in the end, there is no competition. Ice cream and sorbet are unique desserts that can’t be compared – it depends on the tastes and preferences of each of us. What can be compared, though, is their quality, and with Remeo you always make sure that you choose the best.
