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.

It smelled like sour cream
It smelled like sour cream and taste like yogurt. It was sweet, which I believe is the opposite of sour. Ruined a perfectly good Chipotle burrito.
I bought since the store didn’t carry Forager cashew or almond yogurt in plain. First impression once you peel back the aluminum is the odd color. Initial taste test: ok. A few seconds later, not a good aftertaste. The consistency is creamy, but also jellyish, which I’m betting is due to the cornstarch. It’s got that overly gummy consistency. Definitely something odd about it. I wouldn’t buy again. I’m looking to add it to baked goods because I really don’t want to drive back to the store to return it.
Who can eat this? It’s absolutely disguisting!!
Haven't tried yet but curious
I’m curious and anxious to try this but I’m wondering why they felt the need to add all those extra vitamins to it. I’ve just been using coyo yogurt for my sour cream replacement. Also, is the corn starch organic? If not, I would remove more stars.
Response from Go Dairy Free
Hi Sarah, these yogurts are non-GMO verified, so the cornstarch is non-GMO – I don’t believe it’s organic though. I’m going to speculate that the added vitamins and minerals are to rival the nutrients in dairy yogurt. They don’t specify quantity with all of the vitamins, but each serving has 30mg of calcium.
