The cultures we sell are starter cultures used for inoculation. You consume the fermented medium the starter culture has been put into. We ensure our cultures are grown in mediums with a PH of less than 4.6 to ensure any harmful bacteria are not present. We also undertake regular lab testing for known pathogens which meet UKAS standards. As you will be responsible for using these cultures to ferment your own foods, we ask that you check your PH levels on a regular basis to ensure they are fit for consumption.
If you notice any signs of mould, we ask that you always discard the medium immediately. Please contact us if you have any worries or concerns. In our experience mould is rare. It is usually a result of a neglected culture. If you care for your cultures in the correct way and keep them active as per our instructions, the risk of mould is very minimal. These are hardy cultures that have been around for thousands of years, They are very mould resistant. Please ensure you sterilise any equipment used for fermentation on a regular basis.
