Artificial cream (or "dessert topping") is an imitation of whipped cream containing some non-dairy fats. Examples are Cool Whip and Elmlea. Artificial cream is usually made from vegetable oil, not butterfat, and contains no butyric acid. However, most leading brands do contain dairy products and therefore are not suitable for vegans or people who avoid dairy because of dietary or religious reasons. Artificial cream often contains sugar or other sweeteners. Artificial cream is sold as whipped, ready-to-serve topping in plastic tubs and aerosol containers and in the form of powders which must be whipped with a liquid before use. Artificial cream can be used as a topping on pies, cakes and sundaes or as an ingredient in recipes.
