I have looked for a yogurt like I get in Paris. This one is so close. I make with 34 oz. whole milk and 8 oz. of heavy cream (1/8 tsp. starter) and incubate for 7 hours. When done, add strawberry jam to taste. It is extremely close to what I get in Paris. So delicious!!! (Posted on 3/13/2012)
Well as I continue my journey to optimal health and weight loss I have to add another delicious delight to my list of excellent products purchased from this site. Mild Yogurt. OMG this was so delicious!!! I have to find out which heirloom variety tastes the most similar. Thanks again for this delicious treat!!! (Posted on 1/9/2013)
The mild flavor yogurt culture is awesome! I couldn't be happier with the way it turns out with never a disappointment. I let it incubate for about 6 to 7 hours and can alway be sure of a wonderful consistency. This make fabulous greek yogurt although I might let it drain a bit longer than necessary but the final product is great. I have become very popular with my neighbor and dear friends that I share this special treat.
Because I live so far away from any store, I use nonfat dry milk and add a half cup of heavy cream to a gallon and a half of reconstituted milk. I don't want too much cream because of being conscious of my weight as well as my dog who also enjoys the yogurt. The vet said it is good for his digestion.
Anyway, along with other reviewers, thank you so much for having this variety available. I enjoy the other yogurt cultures and use them for the liquid in bran muffins, but for a great treat, the mild yogurt flavor is my favorite.

My family loves this yogurt starter. I make 1 qt. with 1/2 c. powdered milk and culture it for about 5 hours and get thick thick thick (like store bought stuff) yogurt. I usually reculture it 2 or 3 times and it's still pretty thick after the 3rd culture. My daughter and I eat it without any sweetener and my husband and boys prefer just a sprinkling of sugar.

I have purchased and used an heirloom culture (the Bulgarian), but I found it to be really cumbersome to maintain since I prefer to make raw goats milk yoghurt. I have a large and busy family, and I culture a lot of foods (sauerkraut, sour pickles, water kefir, daily sourdough bread, kimchi). I found that maintaining a pure seed starter was an extra step that made it a challenge for me to keep up with making yoghurt. I have a 9 tray Excalibur dehydrator and a Yogotherm. Running the dehydrator for just a cup of pure seed starter was not an option, and the Yogotherm works best with the 2 quart bucket provided. I purchased the direct set culture and have been very pleased. I've made 5 batches now (2 quarts per batch) with raw goats milk and each batch comes out consistent and tastes great! It's just the right amount of tang for what we like, and not having to worry about maintaining a pure seed starter has been nice. I will definitely be purchasing the Mild Flavour Yoghurt Starter again! (Posted on 5/11/2013)
I also love the villi yogurt culture - but my husband and daughter didn't. But this they LOVE. I gladly eat it without sweetener while they add a bit of sugar or honey to theirs. There's no sour taste at all. The texture is very creamy and the yogurt was nice and thick without having to strain it or add any kind of thickener. I am so thrilled with this culture. Easy and delicious!
Now I'm planning to experiment with using alternative milks to make yogurt with this culture. Here's hoping it will turn out yogurt we like that way too! (Posted on 5/16/2013)
Since starting to use this yogurt culture, we've had to go casein-free. I'm thrilled to report that this starter has worked beautifully with homemade cashew milk. We have played around with thickeners and prefer the results we get with gelatin. It also helps with creaminess to make particularly rich nut milk - something between cashew milk and cashew cream. I'm so glad we get to keep enjoying this wonderful culture even without dairy. (Posted on 6/28/2013)
