Origins of Milk Cream

It dates back to the 17th century when, thanks to the cooks of the French court, it is no longer used only to make butter and its smoothness and lightness begin to be appreciated. Already by the 20th century it became the basic ingredient of many kitchens.

Milk cream should have a more or less viscous liquid consistency. Its main nutrient is fat and depending on the amount of it it contains, then it will be a double cream – if it has more than 50% -. If it is more than 30% it will be suitable for whipping and if it does not reach 20% then it will only be suitable for cooking.

Milk cream should not be confused with chantilly cream.
