Everything seems to have some carbs in it ugh... I know HWC does just not sure how much you have to have before it become 1 or more.

There is a thread on here where it was discussed and researched by many on the thread and I think the consensus was that it has to do with the fat content.
It was said that if it is below 1/2g carb per serving it could be listed as 0 carb. So if we consume 5 servings @ 1/2g or .5g carb in each it could add up to
2.5g carbs total.
Some think half and half is the same carb grams as cream but I say it's at least 50% more carbs because it's half milk and half cream.
I think if we could find higher quality cream with higher fat it would be much lower carbs or a real 0.
Dairy Farmers are paid based on the percentage of cream/fat in their milk so if milk distributors keep the fat in cream a little lower, they keep more profits and we get a few more carbs.

Do a carb search for 1 cup heavy whipping cream... then divide by 16 to get the carb count per tablespoon. I found one site that said HWC has 6.64g carb per cup. That's .4 per TBS.

Because of the current labeling laws you MAY find cartons that say 0g carb per TBS. That's because if the carb count is <0.5g they can LABEL IT AS ZERO.

Now... if you believe the label and use HWC freely, you can easily see how those "hidden" carbs can, and do, add up quickly.

They are tricky in their labeling aren't they? That means they're selling us a lower quality product for more money. Can you just imagine how hard it was to do this diet before there were any labels?

I just checked my butters for another thread and realized that they all had 17% fat and 0 carbs. But cream is also 17%fat so why does it have carbs and butter does not?

Because cream has naturally occurring lactose (milk sugar) in it. Have you ever made butter? When you get the fat to separate from the cream you end up with it in liquid (whey)... that's where the lactose (carbs) and protein goes.

As in Curds and Whey?
So the fat is the same in but it's the Whey that is removed when making it into butter and thus the carbs are removed.
Interesting....
Thanks Tril!
