Organic Filmjolk Yoghurt Starter
Filmjolk yoghurt is a mild, buttermilk flavoured yoghurt originating in Sweden. It is known as a mesophilic yoghurt; which simply means it can be cultured at room temperature. Filmjolk, sometimes just called “fil,” is uniquely Swedish. The earliest written record of it comes from the renowned 18th century Swedish botanist, Carl von Linné. It’s technically buttermilk – a fermented milk that tastes sour like yoghurt but is viscous enough to drink. It is still an integral part of the Swedish breakfast. Our organic filmjolk yoghurt starter is often served on cereal such as musli with fresh fruit.
The bacteria responsible for fermentation of filmjolk yoghurt are Lactococcus lactis and Leuconostoc mesenteroides. The unique ability to ferment at room temperature makes filmjolk yoghurt an easy yogurt to prepare at home! Just combine milk and our organic filmjolk yoghrt starter culture, and wait for the magic to happen.
