Sour cream on a silver spoon! Being rich is nothing new when it comes to our sour cream; but we measure wealth differently. We put our stock in 100% organic milk from organic, pasture-fed cows. Organic Valley Sour Cream is born tangy and rich, and we're not afraid to flaunt it!
It’s no secret. A healthy mix of organic pasture plants provides all the vitamins and minerals cows’ bodies crave—just as nature intended—and milk from grazing cows is naturally creamy and high in flavorful butterfat. That’s why, years ago, the members of our co-op agreed on a pasture policy requiring our family farms to give their cows the pasture they need to produce the highest quality, nutrient-rich milk. Our pasture policy is your assurance that every tub of Organic Valley sour cream is going to be consistently creamy and rich.
Organic farming doesn’t allow antibiotics or synthetic hormones. We’ve learned that those things aren’t necessary to maintain a strong and healthy herd. Instead, we employ on-staff veterinarians and an animal wellness expert to help manage the health of our herds. Having an average herd size of 80 cows makes it easy to tend to the needs of every cow. Caring for our cows means delicious milk and happy customers—and that explains why so many Organic Valley farms win quality awards for their milk.
Our sour cream is a cultured blend of nutrient-packed organic cream and skim milk. Non-GMO cornstarch and organic nonfat dry milk are added to stabilize and thicken the cream. When the sour cream is pasteurized and homogenized, active cultures acidophilus and bifidus are added to boost the tangy flavor and create a consistently dense cream. The active cultures also serve as probiotics to improve the microbial balance of your digestive tract. And because our sour cream is certified organic, you can be assured it’s produced without antibiotics, synthetic hormones and persistent pesticides. This stuff is incredible.
OV sour cream brings cool, tangy flavor as a topping for favorite dishes or as an ingredient in dips and dressings. Pile it on. Enjoy the simple and nutritious goodness of sunny, organic pastures in every heaping spoonful. It’s good for you!
Organic. It’s all we do.
