Bulgarian: dried organic & probiotic heirloom yogurt starter

Bulgarian: dried organic & probiotic heirloom yogurt starter


Ask a question

Bulgarian yogurt is basically the original "yogurt" made with Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus.

It's a thermophilic yogurt which means it cultures at higher than room temperature and requires additional heat. Unlike kefir there are also no 'grains'.

You just need to take out a spoon of yogurt to make a new batch and since it's a true heirloom yogurt you can keep doing that at least 5 times. Bulgarian tends to lose the original lactobacillus bulgaricus over time when made in other places than Bulgaria. Therefore keep some of the original starter to make new batches and once in a while order a new starter.

Our cultures are dried, for the simple reason that it's more reliable to ship the dried cultures and from experience we know they offer better results because long term handling do not affect the dried cultures as much as the fresh live packets.

For those living in Belgium or the direct neighboring countries we can ship fresh live packets at your request. But note they offer no additional benefit over dried cultures.

Great Product, very fast shipping.

I just made yogurt with this starter yesterday and the yogurt turned out great! I was looking for yogurt with a little more tartness and this was just what I was looking for (I also incubated for a longer time). I am quite pleased with this purchase.
