BREAKSTONE'S Unveils First-Ever Nationally Distributed Greek Style Sour Cream08:09 EST Thursday, November 14, 2013
NORTHFIELD, Ill. (Business Wire) -- Known for the finest dairy products made with fresh, wholesome ingredients, BREAKSTONE'S continues to innovate by offering the first-ever national brand of Greek Style Sour Cream. BREAKSTONE'S new Greek Style Sour Cream features the smooth, creamy texture and deliciously rich taste of traditional BREAKSTONE'S Sour Cream blended with authentic Greek strained yogurt. This Greek-style product provides consumers with a better-for-you option featuring 50% less fat, 40% less cholesterol, and twice the calcium and protein of regular sour cream (each 2 Tbsp. serving has 4% of the daily value for calcium and 2 grams of protein).

“We are always looking to develop new foods that meet a variety of consumers' needs and nowadays consumers are seeking better-for-you alternatives,” said Shannon Lester, BREAKSTONE'S brand manager. “Some consumers are already substituting Greek yogurt for sour cream, but sacrificing the creamy texture and delicious taste of traditional sour cream. However, with BREAKSTONE'S new Greek Style Sour Cream consumers can enjoy both.”
Greek-style products are stocking today's grocery store shelves, as shoppers continue to gravitate toward products with improved nutrition and simpler ingredient lines. In 2012, Greek yogurt saw more than a 50% growth in retail sales – and the numbers continue to climb1. Now, with BREAKSTONE'S Greek Style Sour Cream, consumers can introduce the perfect balance of flavor and nutrition into their favorite recipes and specialty dishes.
Currently available in the dairy aisle of retailers across the country, the new BREAKSTONE'S Greek Style Sour Cream is available in a 16oz container for a suggested retail price of $2.99. The innovative offering joins the other BREAKSTONE'S Sour Cream varieties including all natural, fat free and reduced fat ranging in sizes from 8oz to 48oz.
BREAKSTONE'S Greek Style Sour Cream can be substituted for traditional sour cream when making dips, side dishes, entrees and desserts. Like all of BREAKSTONE'S products, it can be used for cooking as it doesn't curdle when heated. For recipe ideas, visit the brand's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/breakstones.
Since the Breakstone brothers started their dairy business in 1882, BREAKSTONE'S has only used the highest quality, freshest, wholesome dairy products and the brand continues this heritage today.
