I've been lurking for a while and have a question. Many here mention "heavy
cream" as part of their diet. Is this evaporated milk, condensed milk,
half&half or what?

Thanks!

It's cream, the stuff you whip to make whipped cream. Cream comes in
light and heavy, light and heavy referring to the butterfat content.

Half and half is lower butterfat content still becuase it's half cream
and half milk. Heavy cream has more fat, more calories and fewer carbs
than light cream, light cream has the same relation to half and half,
and then comes whole milk.

In many groceries, heavy cream is only sold by the half pint or pint. I
have found a few that sell it by the quart, but even so, it's expensive.
But my point is not about cost, but that you may have overlooked it
in the stores cause it's often sold in tiny containers.

Around here, it says "heavy cream" on the label.

In other words, it's whipping cream.

Heavy cream is about 35% milkfat. It is obtained in a separation
procedure, in centrifuges, where the milkfat tends to rise to the
middle of centrifuges and the watery sustances to the outside.

Make sure you read ingredients. Many brands have additives which raise
the carb level. You want to find a brand that has only cream and
nothing else in it.

In the US, that'll be difficult to do. Most commercial creams have
stabilizers and gums in them.

Creams are defined by the fat content. Heavy cream has more 30%
milkfat. There are other standard creams that have more fat with the
usual divisions at 36% and 40% (although it's rare to find that last
one at retail). Then, they're usually called whipping cream.
