In Britain, cream cheese must have a fat content of 45-65% (anything above this is considered double cream cheese), although definitions vary abroad.

Buyer's guide

There are many varieties of cream cheese available. Look for young cheeses with a far-off use-by date.

Storage

Cream cheeses are designed to be eaten as fresh as possible. Eat 3-4 days after opening. Cream cheese doesn’t freeze well.

Preparation

Cream cheese’s creamy character makes it popular for use in cooking: it’s used both in savoury dishes and sweet cheesecakes and icings.

Other considerations

Soya-based cream cheeses can be used as a dairy-free alternative to milk-based cream cheeses in most recipes.
