Sour cream is nothing more than fermented cream and bacteria, yet it tastes so good! If it tastes good, it has to be bad for you, right?
Not really. Sour cream may not be appropriate for everyone, especially for those who are lactose intolerant. However, sour cream may help absorb fat-soluble vitamins, often contains helpful probiotics and is low in carbs.
It’s also high in saturated fat and overconsumption may lead to weight gain. In moderation, for those not lactose intolerant, sour cream should be just fine.
