Sour Cream

Sour Cream

If you’re used to sour cream that’s got a blended texture and homogenous feeling to it, you’ll be delighted to discover the unique character and quality of ours. It’s wonderfully smooth, but has a supple feel to it, like fine-grained curd. Its generous body makes it great for baking, and its rich flavour adds depth to dips and dressings. Wonderful in guacamole and borscht, and alongside spicy Southwest classics like mole, huevos rancheros, and fish tacos. Find more useful tips, and tell us what you think of our Sour Cream.

Cream Cheese

This is the product that launched Liberté in 1937, and we haven’t changed a thing since. It’s standard issue at most Montreal bagel shops – nothing else will do. It’s tangier and brinier than most cream cheeses, and has the rich, ripe flavour of cultured butter. Its texture is fluffy, velvety, and very spreadable. It melts instantly in your mouth. Perfect in canapés and sandwiches, as well as on crackers, and raisin toast. Find more useful tips, and tell us what you think of our Cream Cheese.

Plainly perfect. Our firmest and richest Greek yogourt delivers all the protein of a typical Greek yogourt, and all the pleasure of a generous splash of added cream. Luscious, full-bodied, round and robust, its extra-creamy texture is matched by a dense, lush flavour and a lingering, round mouthfeel. Whether on its own, or as an ingredient, this one has it all. This could be your new favourite thing. Find more useful tips, and tell us what you think of our Greek Extra-Creamy 5% yogourt.

Classique

Classique

This is the ‘stirred’ plain yogourt you may have grown up eating – it has a very light and loose in texture, and a lightly pearlescent appearance. Its very fresh, clean flavour has just a hint of sweetness to it (thanks to the natural sugars in milk) and a nice acidic zing on the finish. This is a delicately nuanced plain yogourt of simple grace and uncomplicated versatility. Delicious with fruits, and hot or cold cereals. Learn more about our Classique yogourt.

Quark

Quark

Quark is a fresh cheese that’s popular in Germany and other European countries. We first launched it to serve our clientele from Montreal’s ethnic communities, and it’s grown popular with the general public. It looks and spreads like cream cheese, but its flavour is much more yogourt-like. It’s ‘dry’ and a little mouth-puckering, like a very tannic wine. Use it as you would cream cheese, and enjoy its unique fresh taste. Learn more about what Quark has to offer.

Greek organic 2%

Our Greek organic 2% is strained, so it’s high in protein and has a pleasing heft in the mouth. It has medium-dry texture, and a crushed velvet finish. It’s a subtly flavoured plain, with fresh notes of sweet milk and soft, natural tang. Delicious on its own, and with seasonal organic fruits. Learn more about our Greek organic 2% yogourt.

Kefir effervescent Organic

Kefir effervescent Organic

This fermented milk beverage is much more liquid than our non-effervescent kefir, and is brimming with tiny bubbles created by natural yeasts. Just like wine, beer, kimchi, and other fermented foods, it’s alive – and you can taste it. If you like the natural tang of yogourt or fruit vinegars, you’ll love the zesty, sharp finish on our effervescent kefir. Wonderful in smoothies, but perfect on its own. Find out more about the origins and benefits of our Kefir effervescent organic.

Kefir

Popular as a drink in many parts of Europe and Central Asia, kefir is essentially fermented milk. Its flavour is a pleasing combination of milky and tart. It has the texture of a drinkable yogourt. If you’re a fan of ‘sour’ cocktails or fruits, you’ll likely love the slight mouth-puckering character of kefir. An excellent probiotic, it’s generally well-tolerated by people with a lactose intolerance. Try it on hot cereal, in smoothies, or in creamy dressings for salads and slaws. Find out more about the origins and benefits of Kefir.
