Sour cream is made by fermenting cream from dairy milk with lactic acid bacteria. The bacterial culture, which is introduced either deliberately or naturally, sours and thickens the cream.
This rich, slightly tart condiment is often used as a topping for tacos and baked potatoes, or to thicken baked goods, sauces, and stews.
Sour cream isn't a significant source of nutrients in most diets, as it's eaten in such small quantities. Regular sour cream is fairly high in fat and calories.
