Definition of the noun Gelato

What does Gelato mean as a name of something?

noun - plural: gelatos

  1. An Italian variant of ice cream made from milk and sugar, combined with other flavourings. The ingredients are super-cooled while stirring to break up ice crystals as they form.


Gelato is the Italian word for ice cream, derived from the Latin word "gelātus". In American English this word commonly refers to varieties of ice cream made in a traditional Italian style. Gelato is made with milk, cream, various sugars, and flavoring such as fresh fruit and nut purees. It is generally lower in calories, fat and sugar than ice cream.

  • also known as Italienisches Speiseeis, Olasz fagylalt, Παγωτό, เจลาโต้, Lody włoskie


Gelato is a hardware-accelerated, offline renderer created by graphics card manufacturer Nvidia. It was originally intended for use with its Quadro FX GPU, although a Quadro class GPU is no longer a requirement, as it now also supports GeForce cards. Designed to produce film-quality images, Gelato uses a shading language very similar to RenderMan's. Gelato was first released in April 2004. NVIDIA stated in May 2008 that it will no longer be developing or supporting the Gelato software products .
