Milk is used to produce a variety of foods including cheese, ice cream and yogurt, or to add flavor and nutrients to foods. It is the white liquid produced by the mammary glands of cows. Whole milk contains at least 3.25% milkfat. Fat can be removed from milk to produce 2% milkfat (reduced fat), 1% milkfat (low fat) and nonfat (skim) milk.
Cream adds flavor, texture and color to foods and consists mainly of fat skimmed from milk. Cream solids are the solid part of cream that remains when water is removed. Heavy whipping cream is cream that is at least 36% milk fat. Cream is pasteurized, or briefly heated.
The Bioengineered Foods Disclosure Act requires labeling of foods that contain bioengineered (GMO) ingredients by January 1, 2022. The J.M. Smucker Company is committed to complying with this federal labeling regulation.
