More about this item
Piima Yogurt Starter Culture ORGANIC **TURN YOUR MILK INTO A HEALTHY LIVING PROBIOTIC FOOD!** **Right on your kitchen counter - Fermented at ROOM TEMPERATURE!** We also only use organic ingredients in all of our cultures, always. Piima is a Scandinavian fermented milk yogurt, a soft custard yogurt that is light and creamy with a slight buttermilk tang and a mild cheese flavor perfectly blended. It is ideally suited for making buttermilk salad dressing - just add your favorite spices and vinegar and mayonaisse. It is also good eaten plain or with added fruit or fruit juices. Fermented at room temperature right on your counter - no need for a yogurt maker! Piima increases natural intestinal flora, preventing the development of pathogenic germs, including salmonella, E. coli and Candida. Each yogurt starter makes a delicious homemade yogurt that is ideal for easy home yogurt making. No need of boiling and cooling milk before use or incubating your yogurt starter in a warm oven or home yogurt maker for hours before it will set. These yogurt starters are instead cultured in cold milk and are placed right on your kitchen counter and allowed to set. In about 12-18 hours these yogurt starters will have set and made tempting homemade yogurt, which after chilling, is ready to be flavored or eaten plain. All without the expense and bother of a home yogurt maker. By setting aside some of the yogurt from each batch of freshly made yogurt as your yogurt starter or seed to make your next batch of fresh yogurt, these yogurt starters should last you indefinitely. No need to periodically replace your yogurt starters in order to replenish your yogurt supply. We supply FRESH yogurt starter cultures shipped Priority Mail in the US (which includes delivery confirmation), enough to get you started making 2 cups of yogurt for your first batch. Make once a week to sustain viability of the yogurt starter culture.
