Sour Cream

A Definition

Sour cream is cultured or acidified light cream. Cultured sour cream, which is the more common type, is soured and thickened by adding lactic acid bacteria to pasteurized cream with at least 18 percent milkfat. Acidified sour cream is soured and thickened by the direct addition of an acid, such as vinegar, instead of a fermentation process.
