    Nice and creamy with a bit of a tang.I am now up to 2 weeks worth of yogurt. Next I am going to make the vegan yogurt and home made mozzarella. Easy to make. I had so much fun doing it.

    After following your directions my yogurt was a complete success the very first batch! It set up beautifully and was very mild and sweet. We like it for dessert topping for fresh fruits. Thanks for another wonderful product and for such speedy delivery!

  3. Works even with A2 ultra pasteurized milk

    Food allergies require I only consume A2 (vs A1) milk and there is currently no such thing as yogurt based on A2 milk. Likely because the A2 milk one can purchase in the US comes in ultra pasteurized form (no doubt to extend shelf life since it's not yet caught on in US). All yogurt recipes warn against using UP milk, even the instructions that come with this starter. Figuring what-the-heck, I spent big bucks on the fancy Cuisinart CYM-100 yogurt maker and went for it. Followed the Cultures For Health recipe exactly. It turned out perfectly. Wow. Definitely the best yogurt I've ever eaten in my life. Great flavor, great consistency. So for any of you that need to use UP milk, this starter works!!!!

    Response from CFH: We are SO thrilled to hear this! Using UP milk is so unreliable in general, so we are happy you have success. We do recommend customers use regularly pasteurized milk, because of the unreliability - we cannot guarantee it will work. But keep on culturing, Kimra! YAY!

  4. Starter Failed

    I originally purchased this from Culture for Health at $9.99 for 8 packets in 2014 and although I understand inflation...the same named product is being sold at 8.99 for 2 packets. Very steep price for a small amount of product. I had 6 packets left over form my purchase in 2014 and each packet produced delicious yogurt while the newer product both failed. The content of the starter was also strange, brown and clumped together whereas the older started I had in my freezer were beige in color.

    Response from CFH: Despite multiple attempts to connect with you, we have not been able to reach you to assist further. It sounds the culture you received was possibly defective and we're always happy to troubleshoot and replace if needed. We are sorry for the price jump, but it was necessary given the increase the manufacturer also extended to its vendors due to ingredient and production costs. We do hope you understand.

  5. Easy to use, great tasting

    These direct set cultures are easy to use with consistent results. It's way more cost effective than buying yogurt from the stores.

    I am going to try the Mild tasting culture next time.

    It's unfortunate that they don't offer free shipping to Alaska though.

  6. Great Yogurt After Heat Induced Culture Failure...

    I ordered this on Amazon where quite a few reviewers had similar experiences with a sticky brown, dead, culture in the envelopes. They quickly replaced the failed culture and I was delighted with the yogurt that resulted; initially finishing to a custard-y texture before the finishing-stir through, it thickened significantly in the fridge over the next 24 hours (and it was a decent thickness to start with). The tartness was spot on. So, while I question them shipping the product during hot weather (a lot of California wineries will not ship during summer for the same reason) if it's not too hot where you are, right now, I would otherwise highly recommend this yogurt culture.

  10. This was such a disappointment

    I made all of the culture per directions. Only one out of the 4 batches I made turned out well. It worked on raw milk. The second batch I bought a new yogurt maker, and it did not work. The culture was not grainy but solid and hard to stir into the milk. Only some of the yogurt was firm, but the others were just milk even after 24 hours. This last one was set after 18 hours, but when stirred was just watery. I feel like I just poured the money down the drain.

    Response from CFH: We are so very sorry to hear of this! We are always happy to troubleshoot and make things right, but unfortunately our email attempts to contact you were not successful. Please contact us if you would like our help, as we do not want you feeling as if you wasted your money!

    • Once the yogurt is made, how long is it good for? I'm planning to use breastmilk...
    • Once you've activated the starter culture and started making yogurt, your homemade yogurt is generally good for eating for up to 2 weeks, when stored in the refrigerator.

    • I have been making bulgarian yogurt with a culture from a different company in a small countertop one quart yogurt maker with raw milk (and it has been working perfectly!). However, I want to make larger amounts, so would any of your cultures work for the crock pot? I googled instructions, and all said to use store bought yogurt as the culture. Would any of CforH's yogurt cultures work for the crock pot?
    • The issue is the size of the crockpot, and whether or not it will hold the right temperature for our cultures. The Traditional and Mild Flavor starters can make up to half gallon each time and require 105-110ºF. The reusable Greek and Bulgarian must first be activated with just 1 quart of milk, which can be problematic in large crockpots. They need a steady temp of 110ºF. It's usually best to activate the Greek and Bulgarian using a method that does not fluctuate in temperature, and then subsequent batches usually do just fine in the crockpot.

    • I just made this yogurt using this culture packet for the first time and it turned out perfectly! Can I use the yogurt to culture my next batch or must I use another packet?

    • The manufacturer's directions state this is a one-time use culture. However, many customers have been able to reculture a few times from a batch already made. Experiment and see!

  • From Marina at 5/21/2014 10:03 AM
    • Can I culture it for 24 hours to ensure most of the lactose is gone? I am using raw goats milk.
      Thank you.
    • If using a direct-set starter, like the Traditional Flavor Yogurt Starter, a 24-hour culture is perfectly fine.

    • I have gluten sensitivity and one who is a celiac, can this culture be used for them? and with the 2 quart yogurt maker that you sell?
    • According to the manufacturer of this starter culture, there may be trace amounts of gluten due to barley being used as a fermentation nutrient. We cannot say for sure whether this culture is safe for those with gluten-sensitivity. Please consult your healthcare provider.

      Our Mild Yogurt Starter does not contain any gluten, and may be a better fit.

  • From Jenn at 1/6/2014 2:31 PM
    • Can you add flavoring to this recipe? I'm thinking lemon or vanilla?
    • It is best to add flavoring after the yogurt has set and cooled in the refrigerator, as some flavoring may interfere with the culturing process.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No
  • From Janine at 12/22/2013 4:35 PM
    • Can you make this plain yogurt in a yogurt maker instead of on the stove?
    • The milk should be heated in a stainless steel or glass pot on the stovetop. The yogurt may then be cultured in a yogurt maker or any appliance that can maintain the culturing temperature for up to 8 hours.

  • From Johanne at 11/18/2013 6:06 AM
    • Do the yoghurt starters contain milk proteins or lactose?
    • Yes. Ingredients are milk and live active cultures (Bifidobacterium lactis, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus, Streptococcus thermophilus).

  • From Teah at 5/13/2013 7:47 PM

    • None of the products we carry contain genetically modified ingredients.

  • From Diane R. Redelin at 4/15/2013 1:03 PM
    • I am using direct set/traditional yogurt starter. Can you verify that I don't need to preheat/pasteurize my raw milk prior to adding the culture. I imagine that I place it on 110 like the directions for the pasteurized milk and leave it for 7-8 hours. I have checked this site and maybe I have overlooked the instructions.
    • You do not need to pasteurize the milk to use the traditional yogurt starter. For complete instructions, click on the following link:
