Cream 40% is produced by separating fat from milk through the centrifugation process. The end product is an emulsion of water and fat, containing also proteins, minerals, calcium and vitamins. The fat content in pasteurized cream is between 38% and 43%.
Dairy cream is a uniform, typically white liquid without foreign bodies, butter lumps, oil or foam. It has a pure smell and flavor.
In the dairy industry, cream is popular in the production of butter, cheeses, ice cream, sauces, and other dairy products such as chocolate manufacture or baked sweets. Cream 40% is a popular flavor enhancer and is sometimes used for its whitening properties.
Cream is obtained by mechanical separation of two streams in the centrifuge, one of which is the water and fat emulsion – the cream. After that, the product is sometimes homogenized.
