Aerosol Whipped Cream

Published September 1, 2011. From Cook's Illustrated.

Overview:

Whipped cream in a can is convenient, but do the flavor and texture measure up to homemade? After deciding to avoid imitation whipped toppings, we sampled two national brands, comparing them to home-whipped heavy cream. The results were clear: additives and stabilizers compromise quality. One aerosol brand was too “foamy” and tasters noticed odd off-flavors in both.
