First introduced by Bird's Eye and then by Kraft Foods manufacturer, Cool Whip is a type of whipped topping or a whipped non-dairy substitute. It is made of water, corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated coconut and palm kernel oil , sodium caseinate, natural and artificial flavour, xanthan and guar gums, polysorbate 60 , and beta carotene.
