    This Wiki Article discusses common cow milk derived products such as butter, cream, half & half, semi-skimmed milk etc and their butterfat %’s. It is divided into the following sections:

    General

    Milk is made into a wide range of dairy products, the following is a listing of some of these and their butterfat contents.

    The listing is meant primarily as a reference to the cheese maker who uses store bought manufactured cow’s milk products rather than raw cow’s milk to make cheese. Often different % fat milks are used and creams can be added to raise fat content (i.e. double or triple cream cheeses) of the resultant cheese.
