Fresh milk cream is not something many of us view as part of a healthy diet. Though that is not entirely true. Although heavy cream is loaded with calories and fat, it has its benefits. So how can you enjoy the best of fresh cream without affecting your health? Let us take a look.
According to Healthline, heavy cream is also rich in choline, fat-soluble vitamins, and certain minerals. One half-cup of liquid cream is equivalent to one cup of whipped cream 120 grams, which contains Calories and three grams of protein. It also contains Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Calcium, Phosphorus, Choline, and Vitamin K.
Vitamin A is essential for the health of our eyes and immune function. Choline is critical for early brain development and metabolism. Fresh milk cream also contains calcium and phosphorus which are two essential minerals that are necessary for healthy bones. Studies have also shown that your body absorbs fat-soluble vitamins better when consuming them with fat, such as the fat in whipping cream.
However, cream should not be your mainstay if you wish to consume these nutrients. Most of the fat in fresh cream comes from saturated fat. There have been numerous studies that link excessive saturated fat with an increased risk of high cholesterol. Regular consumption of cream will show results on your waistline. The key to using cream in any dish is to do so in a modest amount.
