Posted by Pradeep Zende on February 12th, 2019

The sour cream market is segmented by category into organic and conventional. The organic segment accounts for the maximum share owing to the natural methods of cream formation. The cows used for the extraction of dairy are raised organically without the use of antibiotics. The milk from organic cows contains heart-healthy fatty acids that result in the production of better-quality sour cream. Organic sour creams are gaining high demand as they are healthier than the conventional ones, owing to omega three fatty acids, CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid), and more antioxidant and vitamin content. CLA is a natural fatty acid that has grown popularity for its application in weight loss supplements.
