Country Trading offer a range of quality starters for yoghurt and cheese to get you started on your homemade path.
The probiotic starter is a great basis for yoghurt making and is the perfect accompaniment to your Stainless steel Yoghurt Maker. It can however be used with any yoghurt maker.
A generous ten pack of probiotic yogurt culture contains four strains of lactic bacteria and probiotics to make fresh yogurt at home. Each pack makes 1-2 litres (1-2 quarts) of thick, tangy yogurt, bursting with bugs.
In a recent laboratory test, one tablespoon of fresh yogurt made from this culture still had a culture count of 21 billion live bacteria seven days after making!
We often get asked - is making it cheaper than buying it? This culture and good milk will give you a making cost of around $3.80 per kilo. Store-bought yogurts range from $4.50 to $12.00 per kilo. So yes it is worth making your own - plus you control the ingredients.
