I'm trying to stick to a paleo diet, and added to that I occasionally eat heavy whipcream. I find that it makes a nice dessert.
Recently I bought two different kinds of the 250ml plastic containers (unwhipped), and one appears to have it's transfats indicated on the ingredi??nts list. Now I was under the impression that transfats are made in factories using plant based oils. And that the milk based fat doesn't have any mentionable transfats. I did read about real butter, meats and heavy whipping cream to have animal transfats but suppossedley they are actually healthy.
Now the cheaper container is 54 eurocents and has the following contents: proteine: 2,5gr, carbs: 3,5gr, fat: 30gr of which sat 21gr unsat 8,5gr transfat 0,9gr.
The more expensive variant 72cents has: proteine: 2,5gr, carbs: 3gr, fat: 35gr of which sat 23gr unsat 12gr.
Now my question is: Do you know of factories putting on transfat labels on their products containing animal fats? Or could it be that the cheaper can actually contains some plant based oils? Perhaps the more expensive variant left out the transfat report.
Also i noticed the more expensive variant takes less time to whip, I havent timed it but the difference seemed significant enough. Other variants like the long keepable at roomtemperature take even more time to whip.

Trans-fats occur naturally in milk. They're produced in small quantities by ruminant bacteria. Some research indicates that the particular trans-fat in this case (vaccenic acid) may even be healthy, presumably because it occurs in small quantities and humans have spent at least a little time evolving to consume it.

Personally, my advice is to never buy anything like that in a can. I buy pure cream all by itself. If I want it whipped, will whip it myself. (Not that I'm into S&M)

Things like CLA are found naturally in dairy, and they are trans fats. However, if the product you're buying contains artificially created trans-fats, then don't buy it.
Unfortunately, you haven't provided ingredients, but rather, nutritional breakdown. It's hard to say what's in there.
If you see anything other than milk or cream in the ingredients, then you should worry. Especially anything that has to do with vegetable oils, or crap like guar gum, carragenan, etc.
