Gelato Italiano 3.2

A smart and efficient solution in balancing gelato mixes.


The correct balance of the ice cream mixture is the result of long and boring calculations… Changing the quantity of a single ingredient will immediately change the relationships between all the others. Anyone who has tried to balance a mixture with paper, pen and calculator or even with a spreadsheet, knows what it means …

Gelato Italiano is the answer to your balance needs. You can quickly and easily edit values in real time simply by using the arrow keys on the keyboard.
In addition, Gelato Italiano 3.2 calculates the nutrients of mixtures and recipes and produces semi-finished products to be reused in other recipes or mixtures. All this in six languages. It can be used in Italian, English, French, German, Spanish and Portuguese. Support for additional languages is available on request.

Simple with online help and input of ingredients. It is indispensable for master ice cream makers, but also for those who simply want to try to create artisan ice cream blends in the best way.

Available for Windows and macOS, Gelato Italiano also has an interface optimized for use on iPad. To run it on iPad you need FileMaker Go (free from the AppStore)

The Solution For a Perfect Blend

Italian ice cream constantly checks and recalculates the weights and percentages of each ingredient by clearly indicating the absence or excess of each component of the ice cream according to the parameters set by the user.

Creating a perfectly balanced blend does not take more than a couple of minutes. Once you’ve done the balancing, you just have to set the amount of finished mixture you want to prepare and eventually put in the preparation instructions. 

Interface for iPad

Take Italian Gelato with you on iPad: install FileMaker Go, free from the App Store.
With iTunes you can transfer .fmp12 files directly to your iPad and use them locally or access Wi-Fi in archives hosted on a computer with FileMaker Pro 16 or higher license.

Gelato Italiano 3.2 archives can also be used with FileMaker Pro / FileMaker Server 16 or later to be shared on a local or geographic network.

The interface optimized for iPad makes Gelato Italiano easy and comfortable to use on this device, ideal for keeping in the laboratory both for taking back recipes already stored and for creating new ones.


Calculation of Anti-Freezing Power (PAC)
It serves to identify the ideal service temperature and therefore the showcase, or vice versa, to know how the ice cream will behave depending on the temperature of the showcase.
Calculation of Sweetener (POD)
To determine the actual degree of sweetness of the ice cream
Calculating the percentage of Overrun
To determine the correct yield of the mixture during the grout
Calculation of the percentage of lactose in the mixture
A high percentage of lactose in relation to the present water results in a “sandblasting” of the product: this function will alert you if you exceed the limit beyond which the ice cream can be sandy
Calculation of the contribution of the nutrients of the mixture
More and more attention is given to nutritional and dietary aspects: with the automatic calculation of nutrients, it is possible to provide its customers with complete information and in accordance with the law on the caloric supply of ice cream. The new nutrition table also includes, in addition to nutrition information, the calculation of Weight Watchers Points!

Calculation of recipe cost
Knowing the cost of raw materials of your pastry product is critical to determining a correct selling price

Archive Recipes
In addition to ice cream blends, you can compose in recipes for ice cream pies, slices, cups and any other pastry / ice cream product using primary ingredients, bases and blends

Recalculates based on an ingredient
Great convenience to recalculate the entire dose according to the availability of one of the ingredients! “…. I have 5 kg of strawberries: how much mixture can I prepare?”

Generating and printing label tags of the complete nutritional product
For production laboratories, this is an essential feature: the manufacturer’s data appears on the label, the list of ingredients used, the date and lot of production, the storage methods and the product’s expiration date, but not only: From version 2.5 you can also have labels with the complete nutrition table

Export / Import Blend Packages and / or Recipes
With this feature it becomes possible to compact multiple recipes and blends into an external file and exchange it with another user of Gelato Italiano 3.0: perfect for ice cream or consulting courses. The package includes all the ingredients and bases that may be used. Thanks to the conversion function, you can import packages generated from versions 2.5 and 2.0

A single click page is available for each screen and function of the program

Friendly interface
Software to be used in a lab needs to be easy to handle: thanks to the decade-long experience of ChefMaTe – Catering Software, it is not a problem to use the program, even for those who are unfamiliar with computers.

Calculation of mix cost
Certainly knowing the cost per kilo of your ice cream is essential for proper laboratory management

Definition of mixtures as ingredients

As in a game of Chinese boxes, it is now possible to include a mixture in another using it as a base, or you can define semi-finished preparations (syrups, premixes, etc.) and use them normally
