Kraft’s Cool Whip might taste like the sweetest and fluffiest of clouds, but it’s not the real deal.

The imitation whipped cream (also called whipped topping) is sold frozen and has a longer shelf life than your traditional whipped cream. But two of its main ingredients include hydrogenated vegetable oil and high fructose corn syrup.

Healthline says hydrogenation creates trans fats, which some studies have associated with heart, blood sugar and inflammatory issues.

High fructose corn syrup is sweeter than sugar and gets absorbed by your body faster.
