When cooking or baking with dairy products, it’s important to know the different percentages of milk fat (a.k.a. butterfat). For example, which has less fat, half and half or table cream? Did you know that drinking 2% lowfat milk only saves you about 3 grams of fat, but 1% saves twice that? Here is a chart with the percentage of milk fat for the most common dairy products excluding cheeses.
|Sweet Cream Butter & Raw Cream Butter||80-85|
|Light Cream/Table Cream||18-30|
|Half and Half||10-18|
