Sour cream (medium fat content)

Sour cream medium fat content "Schmand" is a traditional German sour milk product with a slightly sour taste and firm consistency. The fat content is between 18-24 %. Available as fresh or gently heat-treated sour cream.

Product information on sour cream (medium fat content)  

Sour cream medium fat content, called "Schmand" in Germany, is produced from fresh milk (100 % cow's milk) by purely physical separation (by centrifugation) of skimmed milk and cream. The cream separated in this way is then soured with the help of lactic acid bacteria, giving it its firm consistency and the typical, full-bodied sour cream taste. The fat content can be adjusted according to the customer's individual requirements. On request, we also produce this product with various stabilising systems.

Sour Cream Medium Fat

Sour cream (medium fat content) manufacturer with long tradition and know how  

So-called Schmand is a traditional, typically German sour cream product that is rather unknown internationally. It could best be described as sour cream medium fat content. Regionally it is sometimes also called Schmant or Schmetten. Schmand is a rather firm sour cream with an increased fat content of up to approx. 40%. We usually produce sour cream with a fat content of between 18 and 24%. Classic sour cream, on the other hand, has only 10 % fat. Stabilizers and thickeners are permitted as further ingredients for sour cream. 

Sour cream (medium fat cintent) is one of the sour milk products and gets its typical mild, only slightly sour taste from the lactic acid that is produced during the maturing process of cream inoculated with lactic acid bacteria. The lactic acid also causes the milk protein casein to coagulate, giving the previously liquid cream its firm consistency. 

The possible applications for sour cream (medium fat content) are similar to those for typically sour cream and crème fraîche: as an ingredient or base for delicatessen sauces, dips, dressings, dips and ready meals. Sour cream is also in vogue as a basic topping for savoury baked goods such as tarte flambée and new pizza variants. The slightly sour note can also perfectly round off the taste of sweet desserts and baked goods.  

As a dairy company with a strong focus on fresh mik products as an ingredient for processors in the delicatessen and food industry, we naturally also produce other typical sour milk products such as sour cream, crème fraîche and heavy sour cream.
