Cream in Canada/Montreal

almostalwayshungry | Oct 10, 2012 11:24 AM

On a recent trip to Montreal I went to the supermarket (Metro) to buy some cream.

There were many varieties, of different fat percentages (5%-35%).

But all products seemed to have added ingredients, such as potassium sorbate, guar, xanthan gums etc.

I spent quite some time looking (much to the amusement of the guy restocking the shelves!) at all the different brands, but could not find one that was *just* cream, without additives.

Is this normal for dairy/cream products in Canada?
