Holiday and football parties are on the horizon, which means sour cream will be a staple on many menus. Luckily, Forager Project has launched a dairy-free sour cream that I think will please most picky consumers. Unlike other vegan sour cream alternatives, Forager Project Dairy-Free Sour Cream is cultured for a more authentic flavor, thicker consistency, and probiotic boost.
According to the company, this sour cream substitute can seamlessly cover every dip, potato, and Mexican food need. It’s reportedly rich, creamy, and tangy – just like the real deal. But you be the judge! Be sure to leave your own review and rating below when you try it.

Forager Project Cashew Sourcing
A Go Dairy Free reader recently expressed concerns about human rights violations in the cashew industry. I’m not an expert on this topic, but Forager has addressed their cashew sourcing.
Cashews are one of Forager Project’s key ingredients, and the company searched far and wide to find cashews that meet its strict standards: organic, ethically sourced, and sustainably farmed. Sourcing from Vietnam, Forager Project works with small farming cooperatives who care deeply about their workers and who produce the highest quality of cashews available

Not a bad taste but the wrong texture
Unfortunately, this non-dairy sour cream has a texture that is more like yogurt…if that. It’s a bit slimy, making it necessary to mix it with something else to make it palatable (salsa, chili, soup) and won’t stay on a cracker or carrot stick easily on it’s own. Doesn’t quite have the tangy taste or sour cream, either. Might work well as an ingredient of a dip.
