Elmhurst 1925 Introduces First Plant-Based Sour Cream Pouch

Elmhurst Sour Cream

Elmhurst 1925 has launched its new sour cream, marking the brand’s evolution from a dairy-free beverage brand to a plant-based food company.

As Elmhurst grows its plant-based offerings, a dairy-free sour cream alternative is a natural addition to its product lineup. Made with minimal ingredients, this is a replacement for dairy-based sour cream that can improve other food options.

The squeezable pouch provides a mess-free, dairy-free, low-sodium sour cream alternative, making this plant-based sour cream easier to use.

“Stepping into the dairy-free food category feels like a logical move for Elmhurst, after we perfected delicious and nutritious plant milks and creamers made with only the simplest ingredients,” said Heba Mahmoud, senior director of brand marketing at Elmhurst 1925.

“Our mission is to raise the bar in every category we enter by providing consumers with the cleanest, most nutritious and delicious plant-based alternatives – and that’s exactly what we did with our sour cream. It’s the first plant-based sour cream in a pouch, the cleanest recipe available in market, exceptionally creamy and tangy and performs beautifully in any dish or recipe without melting or falling apart.”

Elmhurst’s Sour Cream is crafted with oatmilk, hemp protein and minimal ingredients without any added gums or filler ingredients and emulsifiers, zero sodium and no cholesterol. All Elmhurst products are non-GMO Product Verified, gluten-free, dairy-free, OU Kosher and Certified Vegan.

Elmhurst Sour Cream is crafted through a HydroRelease method. Using water, this process separates the components of a nut, grain or seed before reassembling them as a beverage-ready emulsion, maintaining the nutrition of the source ingredient without added gums or emulsifiers. This zero-waste process upcycles waste into renewable energy and is powered by 100 percent renewable hydroelectric power to drive sustainability.
