While shopping for sour cream, I noticed a new (new to me at least) product from Tillamook Dairy called “Natural Sour Cream.”

Premium and Natural Tillamook Sour Cream

Of course, this made me curious.  Check out the ingredients:

Tillamook’s Premium Sour Cream contains Cultured Pasteurized Grade A Cream and Milk, Grade A Nonfat Dry Milk, Modified Corn Starch, Sodium Phosphate, Guar Gum, Carrageenan, Calcium Sulfate, Locust Bean Gum, Maltrodextrin.

Tillamook’s Natural Sour Cream contains Cultured Pasteurized Grade A Cream and Milk, Enzymes.

Tillamook Sour Cream is downright yummy.  I can’t tell the difference (in taste or consistency) between the two products.  So why the extra (and weird) ingredients in the “Premium” stuff?

Same price, by the way.

    Maybe the ingredients included by the term “enzymes” is a real long list!

    Hi Anneke,

    I’m Tara from the Tillamook Marketing Team and I found your post through Google – thought I’d share some info with you about our sour cream! You are correct that the Tillamook Natural Sour Cream is new and that it is made up of only 3 ingredients: cream, milk, and enzymes.

    The extra ingredients you mention that are found in our Premium Sour Cream provide a taste, texture, and look that some of our fans have come to expect (especially for baking purposes).

    We’re proud to say that all of our products, including sour cream, are free of artificial growth hormones and are made with the highest quality milk. We’re also excited to provide more alternatives to Tillamook fans by expanding our sour cream line with our new Natural Sour Cream.

    I hope I’ve answered any questions you have about Tillamook Sour Cream! If you have any more questions, feel free to contact us at [email protected] or through our Facebook page (Facebook.com/TillamookCheese).

    Thank you for buying Tillamook Sour Cream – I’m so happy to hear that you think it’s “downright yummy”!

    -Tara of the Tillamook Marketing Team
