Vegan sour cream is tangy, creamy, and deliciously versatile. Best of all, no cows are tortured and eventually sent to slaughter to make it! In the dairy industry, workers forcibly impregnate mother cows and then steal their calves after they give birth. These gentle, playful animals deserve respect. By choosing vegan dairy options—like these sour cream brands—you can help keep mothers with their babies and spare the lives of many cows.
