Organic Russian Thickset Yoghurt Starter
Our Organic Certified thickset Russian starter yoghurt culture makes a very thick and creamy yoghurt with a very mild flavour. This is our first non heirloom yoghurt we have added to our range. That means it has a limited number of times you reculture from the yoghurt before the bacteria weaken and the yoghurt will no longer thicken. Generally we find the yoghurt will work well for a further 4 reculturing attempts. However, we have on occasion managed to get that number as high as 6. It is a thermophillic yoghurt, which means it requires heat to successfully ferment. We recommend a yoghurt maker to achieve this. These can be picked up online reasonably cheap (less than £20).
Our Organic Certified thickset Russian starter yoghurt contains the following bacteria: Lactococcus lactis ssp. lactis, lactococcus lactis ssp. cremoris, lactococcus lactis ssp. lactis biovar diacetylactis, streptococcus thermophilus, lactobacillus kefir, lactobacillus parakefir, lactobacillus delbueckii ssp. bulgaricus and saccharomyces cerevisia. This makes it very high in bacteria for a yoghurt and similar in numbers to Milk Kefir.
