Heavy whipping cream vs heavy cream vs whipping cream
How do you know whether or not you are choosing the right cream?
Heavy cream and heavy whipping cream are essentially the same things. Both contain no less than 36% milk fat.
Whipping cream, or light whipping cream, has a slightly lower milk fat content, usually around 30-36%. Which means it is a lighter cream.
Can you substitute whipping cream for heavy whipping cream?
Sure! If you use the lighter whipping cream, you’ll end up with a lighter result because the heavy creams have a higher fat content.
