The lactic acid-producing bacteria, when mixed into dairy cream, results in a thick, slightly tart paste, called sour cream.
From quick dips to thickening pasta sauces, from the base of creamy frosting to a soup garnish, sour cream is a staple in most homes, owing to its versatility. India’s most-renowned dairy brand Amul, launched their version of the same. We ordered a tub to test it for its flavor, freshness and texture. Here’s our Amul Sour Cream review.

Our Review Factors
What were we looking for in our Amul Sour Cream review?
How close can a store-brought tub of sour cream come to the authentic counterpart? We gauged this in terms of taste and texture.
Sour cream has a subtle tartness, a mild sourness with the richness of cream. And yes, this sourness is very different from when dairy products go bad.
We tested this dip with a variety of ingredients and bases to gauge the taste and freshness.
Under texture, we checked the creaminess, spreadability, how dippable this sour cream was, and the eveness of texture throughout the jar.

Amul Sour Cream – Detailed Review
Price + Packaging
This comes in a black tub with a lid. It holds 200 grams of product and is priced at Rs 65/- with a shelf life of three months.
Milk solids and active lactic culture are the only ingredients used. No additives or preservatives have been added.
How did we test this?
Stage one was tasting the sour cream as is. Then we reviewed it as a dip with Cornitos Nachos, followed by using it as a spread with some buns.
Aroma + Appearance
The top layer looked very well set. It had some liquid on top, like homemade dahi does, but it wasn’t substantial. This sour cream had a stark white appearance with milky notes.
Taste + Texture
First things first, the clean ingredient list was impressive. This unsalted sour cream has no preservatives, or color, or any other additives.
As instructed, we stored our tub of sour cream under refrigeration. It must be allowed to sit at room temperature for a few minutes, as the spreadability becomes smoother. Like a dip, this scoops out effortlessly. This was thick but dippable, almost perfect we’d say.
In terms of flavor, the freshness was at peak. It had an extremely mild sourness, exactly like it is supposed to. We quite liked the rich milky flavor it had which would paired fairly well with the nachos, the buns. Alternatively, the taste and texture of this cream would elevate a basic pasta sauce or chicken dish too.
