Do any of you use this? I have no problems with dairy whatsoever and I am not trying to lose weight. I enjoy sour cream a lot.

I agree with @teosinte above. I like that Daisy's is natural and that Grade A Cultured Cream is the only ingredient. I don't eat dairy except on rare occasions- grass-fed local butter or cheese. If you tolerate dairy well, I think this is one of the best choices for sour cream that you could make.

Daisy brand sour cream is nice in that it doesn't contain thickeners/stabilizers like many others (INGREDIENTS: GRADE A CULTURED CREAM). I too am a fan of this stuff, and go through a decent amount (usually in the form of a horseradish/toasted caraway seed/brown mustard sauce that is quite dope if I do say so myself...).

Obviously, organic/grass-fed would be preferable, but that's not to say that this product is "bad" for you, maybe just "less good/nutritious". Grass-fed or not, ruminant meats/products have a low PUFA content anyhow, and as such, wouldn't really worry about it... The culturing process may help to degrade any problematic hormones/proteins but this may just be wishful thinking.

I DO however recommend seeking out grass-fed butter, if not solely due to its deliciousness. K2 is nice and all.... but this stuff is amazing, I can only imagine what cultured/soured grass-fed cream would be like!!

If you are specifically asking about Daisy brand then the answer is no. I try to buy Organic dairy products and in the case of sour cream I like the thicker versions with more fat. I just eat less of it.

If you tolerate dairy (no ill effects) any you'e not concerned about gaining or losing weight.... I'd say it "eat it".

I seem to tolerant dairy very well... I eat yogurt, kefir & cottage cheese but not more on serving per day. Also, heavy cream ~ 1 or 2 oz per day. I like sour cream but it's not really part of my regular diet.

It's "Primal" not "paleo", but who cares about labels?
