Heavy Cream Vs. Half And Half – Which One Is The Best?

As the resident ‘foodie’ at my place of work, I normally field questions related to food. One of the most common questions I answer is, which is the best cream between heavy cream and half & half cream.

What you might not know is the fact that salts used in preparing meals are of two different types, that is, iodized or non-iodized salt. The two distinct salts are quite different. They differ in quite a number of ways.

Before I answer this query directly, it’s prudent that I give some background. Every human needs traces of iodine for growth and proper development. Iodine, a non-metallic mineral exists in a good number of soils. It’s absorbed by plants and then ingested by animals and humans.
