At Pitango Gelato, we invest our time and resources in crafting a product from organic ingredients with the wholesome, simple and distinctive flavor that only real milk and real fresh ingredients can provide. All of our flavors correspond to their namesake: That means that our pomegranate sorbet is simply made with real fresh pomegranates that we squeeze ourselves—and not from concentrate, syrup or a processed industrial product. We use no chemicals, colorings or artificial ingredients. And our gelatos and sorbets are made without excessive fats or sugars because we know that our customers can taste the difference.
Most gelato shops today lure consumers in with colorful, eye-candy displays that are designed to appeal to an impulse buyer. Made with mixes and powders and decorated with a garnish of fresh fruit, these confections bear little or no resemblance to authentic Italian gelato prepared with real fresh, wholesome ingredients. Even in Italy, gelato has fallen victim to less expensive and less labor-intensive shortcuts. We believe that our customers are part of a growing market segment that can distinguish and understand the difference in quality and price between the pint of fresh local strawberries that goes into our strawberry sorbet and an artificially flavored product that may go by a similar name.
Pitango serves artisanal gelato made with organic, grassfed milk and vegan sorbets made with organic fruit. No artificial flavors- just wholesome goodness.
