Sour cream should be consumed with extreme caution by people who have gastritis and liver or gallbladder problems.
Sour cream is good for the beauty of skin, hair, and nails, but not everyone can eat this fermented milk product. Nutritionist Olga Kovinenko told us who should exclude sour cream from their diet.
“Sour cream is a fermented dairy product (cream and sourdough) with a fairly high-fat content – from 10% to 30% – so it is important to know the measure,” the expert said.
Sour cream – benefits
Kovinenko noted that sour cream contains vitamins (A, C, E, K, D, group B), amino acids, zinc, potassium, and calcium (especially a good combination with vitamin D, together they are better absorbed).
“It has a beneficial effect on the digestive process, microflora (it is important to consume fresh, as beneficial bacteria die during heat treatment). It is good for the beauty of skin, hair, and nails,” the nutritionist said.
Who needs to eat sour cream?
“Children, the elderly, and people with high physical activity are the ones who are especially indicated for this product, as its composition is rich in protein and fat,” the nutritionist emphasized.
Who should not eat sour cream?
Do not give sour cream to children under the age of 1.5 years, as the gastrointestinal system is not yet ready to fully digest this type of protein.
Those who are losing weight should not exclude sour cream, but limit its consumption, as it is a high-calorie product.
Those who have gastritis, impaired gallbladder, and liver function should also be careful when consuming this product.
