SCD & GAPS Homemade yogurt recipe

24-YOGURT - A POWER HOUSE OF GUT LOVING BACTERIA.

Homemade yogurt that has been fermented for 24-hours is an important part of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), Gut and Psychology Syndrome, (GAPS Diet) and many other gut healing diets. 24-hour yogurt is a well-tolerated fermented food that aids in gut healing by providing the digestive system with all sorts of good bacteria. It is pure yogurt, free from added thickeners, preservatives, artificial colours, flavours, and of course, sugar.

Sugar is not permitted on GAPS & SCD. The bacteria in yogurt starter culture consume and thrive on lactose, the sugar in milk. Homemade 24-hour yogurt is fermented at a low temperature for a long time to allow the bacteria to consume all the sugar present in the milk and create billions of beneficial bacteria. You end up with a gentle food that can be tolerated even by people who are lactose intolerant.

No commercial yogurt compares. Store-bought yogurts are fermented for a short time (4-6 hours), at a higher temperature and many are flash pasteurized to make them shelf stable, which means they contain almost no active cultures by the time they make it to you.

If cow’s milk however, is a concern, homemade 24-hour goat milk yogurt is a very gentle dairy option. Alternatively, our yogurt recipe blog has many dairy-free, plant-based milk yogurt options to experiment with. 

At first, the idea of making yogurt at home and fermenting for 24-hours might seem intimidating, but, we promise, with a Luvele yogurt maker it’s easier than you think. If you follow this step-by-step homemade yogurt recipe you will produce yogurt with more probiotics than anything you can get at the store.

PREPARATION

Before you begin it is important to sterilise the Luvele yogurt making glass jar, lid and any utensils you use, in hot water. The danger of not sterilising is that other bacteria may overpower your starter culture and affect the quality of your yogurt.
