Default whipping cream vs light cream in coffee and blood sugar

It appears that an hour after my morning breakfast with two cups of coffee using whipping cream instead of light cream my blood sugar didn't spike 20 points like I thought it would. I ate the same basic breakfast but I just substituted the whipping cream for the light cream. Does anyone have similar results or am I overanalyzing this.

Try HEAVY cream next if you can find it in your area. (Minimum 5g of fat per tablespoon - or was it 6g, can't remember). Even better.

It's because light cream has more carbs than whipping cream, and as Salim says, if you use heavy cream (most of us do), you'll get even better results. Light cream has milk added, and milk is loaded with lactose, which is just plain sugar - milk sugar.
