Cream and butter are often thought to be the same thing because they seem to be almost the same. The cream comes with a lot more butterfat as compared to butter. Butter, on the other hand, is a semisolid version of the cream. The cream comes with a lower amount of fat as compared to butter. There will be 80% milkfat in butter while the cream will usually have 30% milkfat. Just remember that there are some creams that may have a higher amount of milkfat probably about 55%. There are certain types of butter and cream that are available too. For example, sweet cream is a type of cream that is made from pasteurized fresh cream.

One similarity between butter and cream is that they are both dairy products. One main difference is its fat content. Butter is known to be high in fat content, about 80%, while the cream will not have a lot of fat with about up to 55% of milkfat. Take note that the amount of milkfat will depend on the brand and the type of products that you would choose to get. They are also used for different purposes.

Butter can be used in order to make bread more flavorful, and it can also be used for cooking. The cream can be used for different purposes but definitely in order to make a lot of dishes creamy. Butter and cream can be used for both sweet and savory food products.
