Crème fraiche is pasteurized cream where lactic bacteria was added. It is thick and tangy but very different from sour cream. Crème fraiche is very stable even when heated and doesn’t separate. It has a more velvety and smooth texture than most heavy creams.
Crème fraiche is the French term for heavy cream.The culture acts as a preservative and gives a characteristic tangy flavour. The Cheesemakers at Yea Brand make a superb Creme Fraiche that rivals the imported French product.
