Single cream refers to various cream products that differ slightly depending upon the country of origin. In Australia, where the food industry is not required to regulate the percentage of cream in milk products, single cream normally refers to cream that has about 35% fatâ€”also commonly called butterfatâ€”content. It may be pure or thickened with an artificial substance such as gelatin. The United Kingdomâ€™s version of single cream is unsterilized and contains around 18% fat. In the United States, single cream is not a widely-used term but half-and-half, with 10.5% to 18% fat, would likely fall into the single cream category.
Cream comes from the butterfat layer that is skimmed off the top of milk, usually cowâ€™s milk, before it is homogenized. This process happens naturally in fresh milk although it is often hastened by additives called separators. The acceleration is normally performed by commercial manufacturers of milk and milk by-products. In a number of jurisdictions, these additives are not required to be listed on the product label.
Various grades of cream are distinguished by the treatments they have undergone as well as the butterfat content. These treatments typically include whipping, heating and the addition of stabilizers and thickeners. These cream-making processes vary greatly not only by country, but also by production facility. The fat content in different classes also varies significantly by country and processing plant.
In general, cream is available in six grades. The lightest, which customarily has a butterfat content of 10.5% to 18%, is generally sold under the names of extra light cream and half cream. The next heaviest grade has a fat content that generally ranges between 12% and 30%. This cream may be referred to as light, coffee or table cream, or sterilized half cream. These two classifications of cream are frequently used to lighten tea or coffee or as a cereal topping.
