Probiotic Yogurt Starter Culture - 20 Litres

Regular price $24.95

Unit price per 

Making yogurt at home is a healthy decision and cost-effective. You control the ingredients and remove large plastic yogurt pots from your weekly waste. Eat well, save money and the planet!

Our Twin Pack is even more economical to buy. It has a long shelf life and makes 20 litres of Yogurt.

• 2 x 10 sachets of starter culture - each makes 1 litre of live yogurt
• 4 strains of live yogurt bacteria including probiotics

It makes a tangy flavored plain natural yogurt. One tablespoon of this yogurt contains over 20 billion live probiotics, about the same as 7 probiotic capsules.* 

Culture Cupboard starters are made in NZ in small batches for maximum live culture counts. Customers rave about the difference in results using fresh cultures.
*Based on accredited laboratory testing and comparison with standard 3 billion count capsules.

Great service

This is my second order from this supplier as my former one ceased stocking yoghurt cultures. Superb & fast service, thank you. For those who may like to know try using Fresha Valley full cream milk which is the only homogonised full cream milk produced abd means no need to deal with clumps of cream on top and in other non homogonised options. Countdown/Woolworths are only stockists & furthermore its actually cheaper than other options. There you go from a happy yoghurt maker.

Love this yogurt; we have it every morning. It never fails in my EasiYo maker so follow the instructions and heat water to between 53-55 deg.

Karen Hailes

Great yoghurt starter

When I decided to make my own Greek yogurt googled starters and came across this starter. I brought some and was very impressed with how easy it made yogurt. Easy to use and makes a fantastic yogurt

Tastes great

I think you need to have a trial and error first attempt and then I feel I can get it right now. What I would have liked to know before I started was that if you are using the easiyo flask as you say that is ok to use (and I had to because you were out of stock of the stainless steel one) you don’t put boiling water in the flask because it kills the starter culture. You put hot tap water for four hours and then refill it again with hot tap water. This is important ! It took ages to find this info.
