No it is not. There is not as high of fat content in whole milk. Whipping cream has a lower fat content than heavy cream too.
thank you jeri in south africa we do not have whole milk, do you suggest i use the normal whipping cream instead.
Yes it is Isabel.
Isabel - I think if you use the full cream milk, but let it settle then skim the cream off the top, you'll have something close to whole milk as there will still be quite a bit of the butterfat in the milk itself. Good luck!
Interesting...well what kind of milk do you have Isabel? I thought whole mold was basicaly straight out of the cow and homogenized (milk and the cream on top emulisified to stop the separation) and pasteurized (to kill the bacteria and lengthen the keeping quality). Light cream is about 15-20% butterfat and heavy cream was over 35%

 hi karen we have full cream, low fat, fat free milk and also long life milk.

No Isabel, anytime you need whole milk you use 'Full Cream Milk"!

My bad - I'm such an American. :)  We're so lucky to have such a wide variety of things to choose from. 

 

You'll have to let us know how Buddy's recipe turns out Isabel!
