Product Notes:

Pure, Smooth and Creamy Delight

Yogurt starter is a blend of healthy bacteria that consume lactose, converting it to lactic acid which gives yogurt its familiar delicious taste.

Through the process of fermentation of lactic acids in milk, yogurt may supply your body with the helpful bacteria it needs for healthy digestion and to combat the problems that can arise when your body is overcome with bad bacteria.

Lactose intolerant? No worries – a Non-Dairy Yogurt Starter is also available, which works with soy milk. Also see Yogourmet's Yogurt Starter with Probiotics.

Previously, each box contained three 'sheets', consisting of two detachable 5 gram packets, totaling 30 grams. However, after perfecting a different manner of production which still produces the same yield, Yogourmet has ceased making that version and has redesigned both the packaging (to become more environmentally friendly) and the product itself.

These new versions (which began shipping in Spring, 2021) still have six packets with the same production capacity (being able to make 1 litre of yogurt, per packet), but each packet now weighs 2 grams less than before, since they have altered the medium the active bacterial culture comes in, after extensive refinements and testing. (It's now suspended in maltodextrin (a plant-based sugar, from a non-GMO source), whereas it used to be slim milk powder.)

Yogourmet Yogurt Starter Ingredients:

New type: Active bacterial cultures (L. bulgaricus, S. thermophilus, L. acidophilus), maltodextrin (non-GMO), and sugar.

Contains: Milk, and manufactured in a facility that manipulates products containing soy and milk.

(Previous type: Skim milk powder, sucrose, ascorbic acid, active bacterial culture (L. bulgaricus, S. thermophilus, L. acidophilus).)

Suggested Usage:

Use one packet of starter per litre or quart of milk. Heat one litre or quart of milk to 82°C (180°F) or bring to boiling point. Then let cool down to 42-44°C (108-112°F). Dissolve one packet of starter with a small quantity of lukewarm milk in a cup, then pour back into the litre or quart of milk. Mix well. Incubate 4 to 4-1/2 hours, or until yogurt has reached the desired firmness.

This product may be used with any make of yogurt maker, according to the instructions for each brand's appliance.

Refrigerate to stop incubation. Refrigeration is also recommended for the box / unused packets prior to use, to preserve their active bacterial culture. This product has a good tolerance to temperature variance for shipping purposes, but shouldn't be exposed to extreme heat.
