    I have a question about powdered heavy cream versus containers of heavy cream and the possibility of mold in chocolate ganache. would powdered be better for freshness?
    Thanks,

    Welcome to Chef Talk! By the way, this forum is for new user introductions. :)

    To answer your question, I would say not necessarily, no. If its stored properly, fresh cream has a fairly good life span and will remain fresh probably longer than you think.

    The problem you run into with powdered cream is getting the moisture level right when you reconstitute it. You don't have that problem with regular cream.

    Cheers!
