Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! This made all the difference in texture in my yogurt! I am very happy with it! Great product! I do not get a runny yogurt any longer; this sets up really nicely. I am so pleased! I left it in my 2 qrt. yogurt maker for approx. 8.5 hours then into the fridge overnight, and it worked perfectly! I am new at making yogurt and will order several packages in my next order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Making Your Own Yogurt I had doubts about making my own yogurt, but had heard it would be better to begin with a starter like this, rather than just using some yogurt from the store, as it often has limited probiotics (good bacteria). I wanted to try making yogurt from raw milk (legal in my state), which is harder to get good results from than pasteurized milk, too. So, I added the culture to slightly warmed raw milk, since I didn't want to kill the naturally-occurring flora and enzymes in it, and kept it warm for about 14 hours, and then refrigerated it. It came out perfect!! I'm so thrilled with this product, I hardly know what to say! I'm going to make another batch as soon as I get my next fresh supply of milk! It should also be a snap for anyone making yogurt from pasteurized milk. I especially like that there are added probiotics that one seldom finds in commercial yogurt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good savings Been using for years but bought at local stores for two dollars more per package. Once they stopped selling, by chance checked this site and found it. good price on product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love making my own yogurt This brand of cultures has always worked well for me, enough that i haven't even tried others! I like having more probiotics vs yogourmet's other more simple starter. It takes a lot longer to culture, but the flavor is the same and it's better for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great item I purchased a half gallon of milk heated it cooled it and added yogourmet. Placed the mix in two quart jars and 1 pint jar which i than placed in a small cooler with water at about 120degrees 6hrs later wonderful yogurt. yogurt from the pint can be used to inoculate the next batch making this box of yogourmet last even longer. Very viable I am quite happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yogourmet Freeze-Dried Yogurt Starter with Probiot I eat homemade yogurt daily, in fact my husband makes it for me. This particular brand, yogourmet, makes a love thick yogurt, better than ice cream anytime of day. Add a little honey or fruit sauce for sweetener if you like. Also a terrific addition to your cereal at breakfast in place of milk.
