Good Karma Plant-Based Sour Cream is a Cultured Dairy Alternative


The food industry is flooded with dairy-free milks and creamers, but some other dairy substitute categories are still under-represented. Good Karma Plant-Based Sour Cream aims to reduce this discrepancy. It’s a top food allergy-friendly sour cream substitute that’s reportedly great for topping and baking, and is used as the base for their new creamy dips.

Most dairy-free sour cream alternatives have a flavor or texture that’s slightly off, but Good Karma is promising a smooth, creamy consistency with no funny aftertaste. When you get the chance to try it, leave your own rating and review below. Let us know if you think they hit the mark.

I bought this at my local Meijer store with an expiration date 7 days from today. But it’s brown upon opening it and smells horrible. Afraid to try it, because pics in your ad show it should be a white color.
I’ve been loving the Vio Life products and was hoping this brand had a decent sour cream.

It is absolutely awful. Weird smell and the taste is terrible. I ended throwing out the whole thing. Try Forager if you want a decent sour cream substitute.

I’m allergic to dairy, so I have been looking for a good dairy free sour cream. Good Karma takes a little getting used to. It doesn’t quite look, smell or taste like real sour cream. I like to add seasonings to it to make a dip. I add salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, chives and vinegar. I haven’t tried it in cooking yet, but that’s next on my agenda.

Sorry but this is not sour cream, maybe closer to a yogurt.

Learning to eat healthier is not easy. Most plant food based substitutes are not going to taste like the sour creams, cheeses, milks etc that are loaded with sugar and animal fats which are addictive. Like coffee which few like at first, it takes a short while and you will enjoy the healthier foods. I really like the Good Karma Sour Cream. It is tastier and creamer than others that I have tried.

Not bad as a base

I purchased due to milk allergies and it’s pretty good. No after taste when eaten straight but I can see this being used best as a base (ie- as a dip/ with baked potatoes and broccoli or within a recipe).

I have been missing my creamed soups! This worked amazingly well. It actually has a stronger sour taste than traditional sour cream. My soup came out the best it has since I have gone vegan. Next time would use a smaller amount to get just the right flavor. I have tried other substitutes, vegan yogurts, milks, etc. Nothing has worked this well. I think it would be great as a dip if mixed with another vegan bland creamy product to get your preferred sour level.
