Chicago-based V&V Supremo Foods announced that it is expanding its crema (sour cream) segment with the addition of five new artisanal cream products with deep roots and flavor profiles designed to take consumers on a delectable journey through Latin American cuisine.

An award-winning producer of authentic Mexican cheeses, creams and chorizo, V&V Supremo Foods notes that crema is one of the most important ingredients in Mexican cooking and is also a popular element in other Latin American cuisine.

Encompassing the authentic flavors that the company is known for, the new crema products are:

    Crema Chihuahua: Crema Chihuahua is the crème fraiche of Mexican cremas — exceptional and unique. This authentic Mexican crema has full dairy notes and a hint of tanginess.

    Crema Mexicana: The quintessential authentic Mexican style crema agria has a light golden hue and a slightly tangy flavor that makes it ideal for all applications within Mexican cuisine, from rustic to refined.

    Crema Mexicana de Casa: A traditional Mexican style crema with a very slight tang and creamy hue, this crema is perfect for all authentic Mexican cuisine and for enhancing dishes across cultures.

    Crema Centro Americana: A perfect rendition of classic Central American style crema, this dairy cultured product has a savory, dairy-rich flavor, a very slight tang, a touch of salt and a pale golden hue.

    Crema Salvadoreña: The ideal Salvadoran style crema, this version is a savory, dairy-rich flavor that contains a very slight tang, a touch of salt and a pale golden hue. This makes an  exquisite, traditional and authentic cultured product.

One of the oldest Hispanic family-run cheese manufacturers explains that all of its crema products are made in small artisanal batches with 100% pasteurized whole cow's milk, Grade A, with no preservatives or rBGH artificial hormones.
