Traditional Greek yogurt is made with goat’s milk and strained to remove any whey to produce a very thick cultured milk product. Traditional Greek yoghurt is not a heirloom culture. You are unable to reculture it indefinitely. Many of the “Greek-style” products you find in the supermarkets are made from cow’s milk and a thickening agent. Our organic Greek yoghurt starter is a heirloom “Greek-style” yoghurt starter which means it can be recultured time and time again. Our culture contains the bacteria Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus.
Our organic Greek yoghurt starter produces a very airy, thick yoghurt that is often full of bubbles. It is the kind of thing you are used to buying from the supermarket as a “Greek-style” yoghurt. The great thing with our culture is that you can make it at home without the need to add sugar, preservatives or emulsifiers. This is a thermophilic yoghurt. It requires a yoghurt maker to be able to work with the culture. These can be picked up online reasonably cheap (less than £20). If your looking to make supermarket style yoghurt at home. This is the culture for you!
