Because it is full of saturated fat

What's your problem with saturated fats? You into double bonds or something? You know that unsaturated fats go rancid sooner. And there aren't any saturated transfats, we all know that transfats are bad.

The cream we get here is packed with saturated fats...which is the bad fat (along with trans of course)

I am at a healthy weight but wish to keep it that way

Saturated fats contribute to heart disease and high cholesterol, pretty good reasons to watch your intake of these types of foods

Also I have high cholestrol, which is hereditary in my case, so I am on cholesterol tablets... another good reason for me not to consume much thickened cream or anything for that matter with high sat fat content

A person should consume less than 16 grams of saturated fat per day to help prevent high cholesterol

The high fat content is what keeps the cream from breaking when subjected to heat.

I use heavy cream for reduction sauces.
Andy I am curious as to what dairies provide products in your area. We have Garelick and Hoods, then some lesser known ones. I thought both of the first ones I listed were everywhere in the eastern half of the state.

It was years before I could find out that your double cream is our heavy cream. Or whipping cream.

We also see Hood and Garelick Farms. Our primary store for groceries carries heavy and light cream and half and half. I never see any whipping creams.

When I worked with the 4-H kids at the Fair, I would go into the barn early in the morning when the cows were being milked. I would go into the separator room and skim the warm cream that had just come out of the cow for my coffee. I would also use it for my cereal. Fresh from the cow, it has a completely different taste before it has been pasturized. Really rich! A little too rich for my tastes today. It would take only a drop to cream my coffee because it was so thick. To this day, if the store doesn't have half and half, I will settle for light cream, but never heavy or whipping cream.

It must be the smaller companies that label whippinig creams. All they are, are a bit lighter than heavy cream. I always have felt that heavy cream whips better than 'whipping cream.' The 'whipping cream' is only a few cents cheaper. I have noticed on whipping cream that it is 'ultra pasturized', whereas heavy cream is not. Not worth the worry or fuss over it. When I want to whip cream, I want the full cream.

Heavy cream is ultra pasteurized too.
