Substitute For Sour Cream?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone found anything to use instead of sour cream? It needs to be Gluten-free Casein-free and no soy

Sounds impossible doesn't it? Claire

What are you using it for? You might be able to make yogurt out of rice or almond milk that could serve it's place in some uses.

I am only gluten free - not Gluten-free Casein-free, so I don't know if their are any, but how about plain yogurt?

kevsmom--yogurt would not work, casein is the protein in dairy products, so no dairy at all.

Claire--I don't have a clue.... adding a bit of vinegar to something might give it a bit of the "sour" taste, I've heard it works for "buttermilk". Depends on what you're using it for, though. You may try e-mailing the The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network <faan@foodallergymail.org>, they've been helpful for me before.

Also, for all the GFDFSF people--has anyone figured out cream cheese? I really want to make a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, but... yeah. And do any of you know of a website/forum/anything that specifically addresses a diet free of all three of these? All the Gluten-free Casein-free sites I've seen seem heavily dependent on soy.

You may be in luck! The link I posted for the sour cream also shows cream cheese!

Tofutti Cream Chesse - very good but it is soy so off limits for some. I drink soy milk without a problem and can eat a small amount of soy. I just have to limit the amount as well as how often I use it. By the way soy milk sours very well (vinegar may cause curdling). You can just let it sit out for a day or so or heat the oven to about 200 degrees, turn it off and leave the milk in overnight. Serves as a substitute for buttermilk which gives baked goods a lighter texture. Claire

I know this sounds crazy but have you tried making cashew sour cream. I don't have the recipe on me but I recently made it and it worked perfectly. I think I got the recipe from a dairy free or an allergy cookbook. The following web site has other nut based dairy substitutes:

I will try to remember to post the recipe for the sour cream soon.

I wish I had a recipe! There are some to be found on the internet if you google it, but I haven't tried making it yet, as dairy free starter can be hard to get. (Someone posted a link in response to my asking about it the other day in another thread.)

I second the idea earlier about cashew sour cream. I make "ranch dressing" from cashews all the time, and it's not the same, but it is tasty.
