Can anyone tell me if Heavy Whipping Cream and Heavy Cream is the same thing? Thanks
From Answerbag.com: "According to the U.S. governments Code of Federal Regulations, heavy cream must consist of at least 36 percent milk fat, whipping cream has at least 30 percent but no more than 36 percent. Varieties of cream are defined by how much milk fat they contain.
- Heavy cream and heavy whipping cream are different names for essentially the same thing: cream that is 36% or more milk fat, and which doubles in volume when whipped.
- Light whipping cream is between 30 and 36% milk fat, and can also be whipped.
- Light cream, table cream, coffee cream or single cream are names for cream that is around 18% to 30% milk fat and will not whip."
