  • Sour Cream?

    I thought about purchasing some sour cream until I looked at the ingredients and then I wasn't sure I should.

    Organic Valley Sour Cream Ingredients:
    Organic Cultured Pasteurized Skim Milk, Organic Pasteurized Cream, Organic Nonfat Milk, Corn Starch, Acidophilus and Bifidus Cultures.

    Corn starch? Any suggestions for sour cream? Or just avoid it? I have also seen cultured sour cream, but also had corn starch. Is cultured better?

    Sour cream is confusing me! lol

    If you can find Wallaby Organics, their sour cream only has cream and cultures. it also tastes so much better than the other brands.

      All food is organic.
      Organic = carbon-containing molecule with a carbon-hydrogen bond.
      The term 'organic' doesn't mean shit.
      Coal is organic.
      Polystyrene is organic.
      Sorry if I burst anyone's bubble.

      Sour cream is delicious. Eat it.

        I got some Daisy brand. Nothing in it but cream. It's not organic, but I wasn't in a position to be picky at the time. It was a million times better than the low-fat garbage my sister-in-law gave us.

            "Nancy's" brand is good. I picked it up recently and I don't remember any corn starch. Its cultured and organic.

              Yes, Daisy is amazing, especially considering that it's a widely available mainstream brand, that is real dairy with none of the additives that most other mainstream brands have. Its sour cream is made of cream and cultures. You might also be interested in Daisy full fat (4%) cottage cheese (Daisy also has a 2% cottage cheese, so look to see which you're buying); its ingredients are also only the dairy.

              There are also other brands of delicious sour cream available that are only cream and cultures, but many brands are filled with all sorts of other stuff - read the ingredients lists carefully.

                Um, corn starch = not awesome. Powdered milk = oxidized fats. Conventional dairy usually = growth hormones and shitloads of antibiotics (because, you know, antibiotic resistance isn't nearly widespread enough...)

                Sorry to be a snot, but yes, when it comes to dairy products, "organic" is a USDA legal term and does mean something. I was recommending Wallaby more for the fact that it's just cream and no fillers, though.

                    Why is sour cream being made with SKIM milk?

                    I've gone back and forth and I often just buy Tillamook. The ingredients are good and Tillamook dairy farmers, while not organic are at least reasonably humane (they are all pastured but also fed grain) and there is a no growth hormones and the cows only receive antibiotics on an individual animal level i.e. when THAT cow is sick, and then that cow is taken out of the dairy line until antibiotics have cleared the system.

                    You do need to keep checking their ingredients list. 5 years ago their icecream was milk, cream, sugar, fruit. Now it has corn syrup and all kinds of crap in it.

                    Edit - never mind. Tillamook sour cream is all fakey foods now too. Why do they bother with their strict dairy laws if they then add crap to the products?

                        Breakstone Sour Cream contains: milk, cream and enzymes.

                        If you can get some Creme Fraiche you can culture your own supply by adding 1 tbsp of this batch to 1 cup heavy cream. Heat cream to 110 degrees, stir in starter and leave at room temperature for a day. It will continue to thicken when you refrigerate it.

                          charming...

                          if you disagree, why don't you say why instead of slamming?

                              Amberlee, I am confused - is this a question for me? Why do I think organic is a word that means something? I'm happy to answer if so.
