Alternative Milks for Making Yogurt

The composition of alternative milks is considerably different from that of dairy milk. While yogurt cultures can be used to culture alternative milks, they won’t survive in the alternative milks and cannot be recultured. To make yogurt with alternative milks, you must use a new starter each time.

Most alternative milks can be purchased commercially; however, they often contain additives that can interfere with the culturing process. Whenever possible, use milks without additives or preservatives.

The best way to ensure you have additive- and preservative-free milk is to make your own.
