How much Lactose/Casein is in Heavy Whipping Cream

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created May 11, 2012 at 11:44 AM

I just discovered Heavy Whipping Cream and I am in love. I would like to mix it with water to make a psuedo-Milk without the Lactose, Casein and various other issues that cause problems with dairy.

Does anyone know how much lactose or casein is in Heavy Whipping Cream? The nutrition label says 0g of both for a tablespoon but I assume that just means its under .5g and so they are allowed to put 0.

Any ideas?

Very little, but there will be a few molecules. Ghee is the only dairy (that I know of) that has no molecules of either.

It's great in whey protein shakes.

I haven't been tested but most dairy products make me break out with acne after consumption. I haven't had issues with butter so I am trying heavy cream. I avoid Coconut Milk (FODMAPS). I found anecdotal evidence on the internet that HWC contains about half the lactose and protein of milk.

I found this info: http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/dairy-and-egg-products/51/2

but it really doesn't say specifically, it just says that its mostly fat.

That said, I use heavy cream to make sour cream (GAPS) and its ferment using homemade yogurt (with whey) to specifically eat off the lactose that is in the cream....the question is how much lactose is in the cream, no mention of caseins (which I think are part of what makes up the whey??).

I tend to think it has to be pretty low, but there are some, otherwise it wouldn't be the second item of dairy introduced in GAPS diet.

Are you lactose or casein sensitive or just want to be careful?

You could also alternate use with cream and coconut milk so you aren't exposing yourself to a future intolerance if thats what you are worried about.
