Pure Cream-definition please


We bought a small bottle 300ml of pure cream yesterday morning, thought to have it with small apricot pies. Open lid, goopy goo stuck to lid and the rest was watery cream coloured liquid. tried to stir in the goop, but made no difference.

Did a " pour test " onto a dinner plate to compare with A2 milk, it spread further and quicker.

Is that what you would expect?

Even double thick creams require whipping if you wish to dollop it - The viscosity of pure unadulterated cream would allow it to flow. I believe the goopy goo in your cream container would be the result of being bottled for days ie not really fresh.
I've separated many gallons of cream in the dairy and fresh it is not thick enough to do anything other than pour, yet when whipped or churned it thickens very quickly

Pura double cream is the go, brilliant, no whipping required.

Rich or double cream doesn't contain any thickening agents and usually has a fat content of at least 48% or more. Pure cream doesn't usually contain any thickening agents and has a fat content of around 40%. With 35% milk fat, thickened cream contains additives such as gelatin, vegetable gum or other modifiers.

I used a pack of this in the cooking of a meat (mince) dish yesterday and it's thicker than the cream I usually buy for cooking but seems to have performed OK. It is thick enough that, with maybe a little whipping, it could well be used for scones and the like and it has the benefit of being UHT:

Safeway cream

Had a use by of 11th August, but doesn't say when bottled of course. I have wound on a milk separator in my youth many times, todays stuff in no way matches what we got from the little Jerseys.
