Culture Cupboard Probiotic yogurt

Restore & maintain balance in the gut.

If you’ve been around here awhile, you know we Luv to share all things homemade yogurt, especially probiotic yogurt. Navigating the world of yogurt starters can be overwhelming, so we sample what’s on the market and introduce you to the best.

Culture Cupboard yogurt starters are made in New Zealand in small batches for maximum live culture counts. The probiotic blend contains balanced amounts of: Streptococcus Thermophilus, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus Delbrueckii Subsp. Bulgaricus and Bifidobacterium for a smooth and creamy yogurt with a classic tangy taste.

With a Luvele Yogurt Maker, making probiotic yogurt at home is a sustainable healthy decision and cost-effective. You control the type and quality of milk, remove plastic waste from your weekly shop and help to restore and maintain a healthy balance in the gut.

Each box of Culture Cupboard probiotic yogurt contains 10 packets, making up to 2 litres of homemade yogurt each. Every time you make a jar of yogurt, be sure to keep a quarter of a cup of it aside in the fridge to use as a starter on your next batch. The instructions suggest incubating for 8 hours however, for a therapeutic yogurt ferment for up to 24-hours. For the best creamy texture, strain out some of the whey following this method.

Before you begin, sterilise the Luvele yogurt making glass jar and any utensils you use, in boiling hot water. Do this by boiling a kettle and carefully pouring the hot water in the jar and over the equipment. The danger of not sterilising is that other bacteria may overpower your culture and affect the quality of your ferment.
