I've been tempted to try a similar thing before, but have not. Because leucine may be able to stimulate protein synthesis a bit in the absence of some other amino acids, theoretically it could lower overall protein requirements for a low-cal diet... (more)

In my opinion I don't think the cream is something you should worry too much about. From what I've seen, the effect of dairy on IGF-1 is largely due to the proteins, particularly whey. These proteins are of course largely absent from cream. I'd... (more)

You can definitely froth heavy cream, but the technique is different. You need to let more air in at the beginning of the process by letting it 'spit' at the top of the liquid, and then make sure you re incorporate all those bubbles by having the... (more)

Which do you think is better (healthier) for me in your morning coffee or tea if you like a creamy cup? Please note I do not like coconut milk or eggs in my coffee. And do you know if they make heavy cream from goats?

Cream is cream and milk is milk. Given how much you're actually going to add, the difference in your health between the two is miniscule. Use the one that makes the tastier coffee.

If it is pasteurized and has gone really sour (i.e. it's chunky), then it has probably putrefied and you just need to toss it. If it was raw cream (i.e. unpasteurized), it can get sour and still be edible for as long as a week or two. The sour... (more)
