    Is it really true???

    HWC contains NO lactose?????


    That means zero blood sugar swings, right??

    I have had to swear off full fat greek yoghurt and milk for this reason because it causes my blood sugars to swing high and crash and I have full force cravings.


    So is it true???

    Thanks!!!

    I have no idea what HWC is but why don't you try it and see if it causes cravings. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

    It is not true that HWC (heavy whipping cream) contains NO lactose.
    Even butter contains a very small amount....

    However, the amount it does contain is pretty low... much less than the FF Greek yoghurt or milk.
    Note that if you taste a spoon of HWC and then a bit of unsalted butter,the cream tastes sweeter... that's lactose, milk sugar.
    There are people who are very lactose intolerant who cannot consume HWC due to the lactose.

    However, it SHOULD be so minimal that it does not cause crashes... if used moderately.

    You mean heavy whipping cream (HWC) or cream?
    The rule of thumb is the higher the fat content, the less the lactose content. So heavy cream will have less lactose than whole milk. I think there is still some lactose but it is minimal. I am not sure what the amount is.

    Cream shouldn't cause wild blood sugar swings. What are you planning on doing with it? Drinking a glass of it? Making a sauce? Drizzling some over fresh berries? Mainlining it?

    This... ^^^

    If in doubt get a blood glucose monitor and give it a test run.

    As I stated earlier, it SHOULD NOT cause crashes... nor wild swings...

    When I put a spoon of it whipped up into my mouth it does make my eyelashes flutter a bit however. Heh.
