Organic Certified Amasi Yoghurt Starter
Amasi yoghurt, which is sometimes called amasi, is traditional, fermented milk beverage that is very similar to Milk Kefir. It has the consistency of a liquid yoghurt and has a fairly mild, slightly tart flavour. A nutritional staple for most South Africans for hundreds of years now. Organic amasi yoghurt starter cultures have recently come into the mainstream more as fermented foods have continued to gain attention and praise.
Amasi is commonly consumed throughout most of South Africa. Fermentation has a long history in Africa as a means of preserving foods naturally, even without conveniences of modern life such as freezing or refrigeration. Amasi yoghurts taste is described as a cross between yoghurt and vinegar; as with other fermented/sour foods, most people say that you either love the taste or hate it.
Amasi yoghurt starter is a mesophilic yoghurt, it ferments at room temperature and requires no special heating equipment. Just combine milk and our freeze-dried organic amasi starter culture, and wait for the magic to happen.
