Crème fraîche – the classic among sour cream products  

Crème fraîche is certainly one of the best-known sour milk products in Europe. In contrast to the firm sour cream (medium fat content) called "Schmand" with 18-24% fat that is also common in Germany, the typical crème fraîche has a fat content of at least 30%, which corresponds to that of normal sweet cream. The fatty cream product is acidified with the help of lactic acid bacteria, which gives it the typical fresh, only slightly sour taste and a rather creamy consistency.

Crème fraîche originally comes from France and is now very popular all over the world as an ingredient, especially when cooking, because when added to hot dishes such as e.g. soups or sauces, not as easily flocculated as the sour cream, which is often used as an alternative, or other low-fat substitute products. Because of the mild taste, crème fraîche is also very suitable for combining with fruit and rounds off sweet desserts perfectly.

We are not only crème fraîche producers, but also produce many other sweet or acidified milk products as an ingredient for the processing delicatessen and food industry. Our dairy range includes e.g. still delicatessen cream, sour cream, heavy sour cream and yoghurts with various fat levels as well as lactose-free cream and our cream products. In the production and further development of our products, we always pay attention to the individual requirements of our customers regarding the processing properties of our milk ingredients as well as practical packaging options.
