Just going through past posts to help me with my fine tuning of eliminating headaches. I noticed this posting and thought to reply. I used Organic Valley whipping cream safely and when I went to get more at another store it had carrageenan in it. The first one had not. I went to their web site and sent and e mail. My answer said if you get the pasturized one it has no carrageenan, but the ULtra pastureized does have it. So there is a small but distinct difference in the product that looks the same until you look closer. Hope this helps. Mariann

I have been searching for safe coffee (or whipping) cream everywhere and can't find any without carrageenan. It's a little difficult to find it in Michigan but I can, but so far, impossible down here in Florida. The explanation about adding it as a thickener so it will whip doesn't make sense for coffee cream. I don't mean to complain but this state is behind the times and makes it very difficult to eat safely.

Di my organic valley half and half says only grade A milk and organic cream. I use Organic Valley pasturized (not the ultra pasturized one) whipping cream. Hope you can find it. I asked my local market if they could get it for me and they do now. Before I had to travel a bit to get it. The lesson here as you can see in my previous posting is read your ingredients every time, what a pain. Mariann

Mariann, I looked again yesterday for 'any' cream that is not ultra pasteurized and so far haven't found any. I need it for a recipe I'm making for guests so I will keep looking. yes, what a pain.

Di, I can easily find safe Half and Half but struggle with heavy cream. The only safe heavy cream I have found is from a local dairy. I generally use half and half for everything in place of heavy cream, except when making whipped cream.

Hope you are able to find a brand soon before the holidays.

I too seem to do fine with organic valley half and half but still am suspect of any heavy cream. I stopped using the Golden Glen brand heavy cream - at first I didn't note any reactions and was elated as it is so delicious, but then a while later I started to have reactions and wasn't sure if it was that or something else and I just decided to be safe....I may try it again soon again to test it, but for now the half and half is sufficing. I don't use it on a regular basis so it's not one of my top priorities to find the perfect one, but nice to know what works and doesn't when the need arises.

Melinda as per my earlier post. I had that problem with organic valley cream, but after going to their site and e mailing them I realized that they have two different heavy whipping creams. One is pasturized the other is ultra pasturized. The latter has carrageenan in it, the former does not. I have seen each product in different markets. So let the buyer beware. I enjoy your posts thanks for taking the time. Mariann
