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.

Home made yoghurt

Have made 2 batches of dairy yoghurt since receiving my yoghurt kit and am very happy to recommend these products! Can't wait to try a batch of dairy-free yoghurt and love the taste and smooth texture of the dairy yoghurt. Thank you for an excellent product!

Making my yogurt in my favorite style according to my own need. It's easy and healthy . Thanks Country Trading. I will certainly continue to order your Yoghurt Culture.

Great product

I’ve been making yogurt for over a year now and won’t go back, kids love it, hubby loves it! So much more cost effective in the long run, can get 3-4 batches per packet if we consume more frequent and get about 2lt s per batch. I used standard 3lt milk, awesome culture sets every time love that it has the temperature instructions on the back and love the new cheesecloth!
