Varieties

Sweet creams products

In modern dairy production, the cream is separated by centrifugal force. The butterfat content in half-and-half is 10.5 to 18%; in light (coffee) cream, 18% to 30%; in medium cream, 25 to about 30%; in light whipping cream, 30 to 36%; and in whipping cream, 36% or more.

Sour cream products

Various types of sour cream are produced by culturing cream or milk with lactic-acid bacteria. Rennet or nonfat milk solids may be added to provide body. A variety of sour-cream products are available, but true sour cream must by definition contain at least 18% milk fat by weight. Sour half-and-half, low-fat sour cream, and light sour cream are all made with half-and-half. Fat-free sour cream is made from cultured skim milk. A cholesterol-free sour cream alternative is made with skim milk and vegetable oil.

Whipped cream

A single tablespoon of whipped cream is relatively low in saturated fat; the trick is whether any of us can actually limit ourselves to just one tablespoonful. Here are some potential strategies for reducing the intake of saturated fats:

Make whipped cream from part-skim milk or low-fat cream. Chill the milk or cream thoroughly, and use a cold bowl and beaters; serve the whipped cream within an hour. Experiment to find a naturally low-fat product that can be used as a whipped topping.

Try a range of alternatives to whipped cream. Look for unprocessed foods such as fresh yogurt, crème fraîche, and other natural foods that are low in saturated fat and carbohydrates.

    Organic meats are also part of a healthy diet. The only organic meat of any kind Acme carries, (at very few stores) is the Empire Organic Chicken/turkey. “All natural” can be anything these days. Even Target has a selection of Organic meats, so why can’t Acme?
    Or at least bring back the Wild Harvest chicken, and drop that Perdue Harvestland stuff. Thanks!

    However, due to reasons that may involve health restrictions, lifestyle habits
    or diet purposes, some people would find that the diet alone cannot
    provide all their daily vitamin needs. The trouble starts when people begin to compromise good
    health in favor of rich tastes. Remember, natural doesn’t
    mean anything if it isn’t healthy.
