So, what is sour milk?

Sour milk, also known as cultured milk, is a dairy product that has been allowed to ferment naturally, creating a tangy and acidic flavor. It is commonly used as an ingredient in baked goods such as pancakes, biscuits, and cakes, as the acidity helps to activate baking soda and create a fluffy texture. Sour milk is also a key ingredient in many traditional dishes, including Russian borscht and Indian raita. The fermentation process breaks down lactose, making sour milk easier to digest for those who are lactose intolerant. Additionally, it contains beneficial bacteria known as probiotics, which can aid in digestion and promote gut health.
