Liberté butter and 35% cream

I just noticed that Liberté now makes organic 35% cream and butter :

Anyone seen it on the market? They still don't have it at Rachelle Bery...

  1. What are the ingredients in the cream? Does it have all the usual nasties like gums and so on or is it just cream?

      I'm wondering too... but it's organic, so I guess it should be just cream.

        Their website said their 10% cream had nothing artificial, but no such statement was on the 35% page so I wonder. I guess the carageenan and locust bean gum could also be organic ;)

        I wish they'd do a proper double cream too (48%). I'm from the UK originally and, over there, cream only has cream in it - none of the gums and crap that is habitually added over here.

          Have you tried this one from La Beurrerie du Patrimoine : It's 45% and only cream.

          What do you do with a heavy cream like that? I never bought it cause I wouldn't know what to do with it...

          1. re: Glaff

            Yes, I have used that, and one from Creme d'Antans that's also 45%. In the UK 48% cream is called double cream and is used where whipping cream would be used here. I've also used it in Indian cuisine - Madhur Jaffrey's book calls for this in several recipes.

            Also, it's just delicious on its own on fresh strawberries :)

        They have an organic line of cream cheese as well but their regular cream cheese is already excellent and doesn't have any added powders or gums (more important IMO than the organic certification).

        For some reason they have yet to upload the ingredients for their cream.

        They also have an organic pressed dry cottage cheese which doesn't include the fillers like their regular line.

        Even their organic line of yogurts which has been out for awhile includes milk protein concentrates, this was not the case when they first came out.

          Found the cream today at Pomme d'Api. Good news, there's nothing else than cream in it!
