Heavy Cream Nutrition Facts

heavy creams

When you think of heavy cream, you generally think of whipped cream, but it has many more uses as an ingredient. Because heavy cream contains at least 36% milkfat, it can produce soft peaks (by comparison, whole milk has about 3.25 percent milkfat). As a dairy product, heavy cream contains nutrients such as protein, vitamins A and D, and minerals like calcium and phosphorus.
