How to tell if Cream is bad, rotten or spoiled?
Practicing proper hygiene and food safety techniques will help prevent food born illness. Although not a perfect test, your senses are usually the most reliable instruments to tell if your cream has gone bad. You can tell if half-and-half, light, whipping and heavy cream have gone bad if they curdle (the liquid begins to contain lumps) and begin to develop a distinct sour smell. When you pour it into your coffee and circles form on the top of the coffee, you can tell that the cream is beginning to go bad. When it actually forms clumps in the container before hitting any hot liquid, then it has already gone bad.
There are, of course, certain health risks associated with spoiled food, so always remember to practice food safety and enjoy you food before their shelf life has expired!
