Default Heavy Whipping Cream vs Heavy Cream

OK, I have been using heavy whipping cream in my coffee, enjoying every sip, but read someone's post about a difference between these two products. Heavy cream having more fat content??? I bought some heavy cream at Costcos today, and it has the same fat content as the Great Value Heavy Whipping Cream (Walmart). There is one difference, the heavy cream lists 1 carb per tablespoon, the whipping cream lists 0 carbs per tablespoon. If this is the difference, I'll stay with the whipping cream but I'll test it anyway (eat to my meter!!!)

Any comments?

From what I've seen between the types and brands here, I'd almost lay money they're essentially the same. Even though one lists a carb and the other doesn't. Some of the HWC says <1g, some zero, some 1g. So I just go with 1g for all and call it good.

Look at the fat calories and see if they're the same.

I'm not sure all Costcos sell the same, but ours here in CA comes from Berkeley Farms and is their manufacturing cream that has a slightly higher fat content. That's also the cream that goes under the Trader Joe's label.

Fat content is exactly the same... as a matter of fact everything on the nutrient panel is the same with the exception of carbs. There is one difference other than the carb listing... the Costco Heavy Cream is $2.99 a quart and Walmart is $3.68 a quart... I like Costco's price better!!!

I think so! I did like seeing 0 carbs on the nutritional panel... I'm pretty heavy with cream in my coffee!

They have different definitions according to the US government standards. Heavy cream has about 20% more fat than heavy whipping cream. Typically, what you find is that HWC has 5g of fat per tablespoon while heavy cream has 6g. There are some products out there which are technically mis-labelled. They say "HWC" on the label but are actual HC. The fat content will tell you the difference.

Costco has HWC next to the half and half and will often have a heavy cream product (widely used by restaurants) called "Manufacturing Cream". Smart and Final sells it, too, in half gallons. That's heavy cream but has several other ingredients. Maybe some of them provide some minimal carbs, not sure. I've never seen MC in any size less than a half gallon.

Then am I safe to presume that you both, Salim and MCS, more commonly use the 5g fat whipping cream rather than the 6g 'Manufacturing Cream' for your recipes... and also in coffee, etc.?

If I can find the 'Manufacturing Cream', I'll check the nutrient panel for any extra ingredients!

Thanks,

Thanks,
When I was in the states, I ONLY used heavy cream. I would also prefer manufacturing cream over HWC if I couldn't get the pure heavy cream. (The extra ingredients aren't really bad.)

Alas, now I'm in a country where I can only get HWC, so I'm stuck with that.
