Cream or Butter?

Answered on October 03, 2013

Is there a big nutritional difference between heavy cream and butter? Both are grassfed, but I tend to enjoy cream in my coffee more than butter, and am not looking to lose weight. However, if there is some sort of difference between the two that I am missing, please let me know, because it's a close call between the two. And anyone know how to get the same frothy thickness with butter as you do with cream?

I'm at a relative's house and given the option between low fat, pasteurized skim milk and miracle whip (loaded with hydrogenated veggie oils and HFCS) I stared longingly at the butter wishing it was still cream for my coffee. It occurred to me to try it, but I just drank it black. I should have tried it...

i would say go with which ever one you prefer/enjoy the most.

you can compare the two on nutritiondata.com (or similar) to see which 'nutrition profile' you prefer

here's a link to unsalted butter (or salted butter)

& here's a link to heavy whipping cream

when comparing make sure you adjust the serving size to the amounts you use.

just a few example stats...if you compare weight for weight, butter has about 1/3 the water content, double the calories, around double each of the fats (sat, mono, poly) & nearly three times the butyric acid (short chain fat C4:00)...

I mentioned butyric acid as it was named after butter (first discovered in butter according to wiki) & i seem to recall reading/hearing somewhere that butyric acid is 'good stuff'.

can't advise on nutritional differences but I blend my coffee/butter/coconut oil to make it frothy.
