Cream (colour)

Crema is the color of cream produced by grazing cattle on natural pastures with plants rich in yellow carotenoid pigments, some of which are incorporated into fresh milk (particularly butterfat). This gives white milk a yellow hue at higher fat concentrations (thus the color of the cream could be considered an intermediate color between the colors of natural cow’s milk and butter). Cream is the pastel color of yellow, as is pink of red. The cream can be prepared by mixing the yolk and egg white. The first recorded use of cream as a color name in English was in 1590.
