This Heirloom Yogurt Starter Variety Pack is perfect for beginners! It doesn't require the use of a yogurt maker and can culture right on your countertop - just add milk. 

This variety pack contains four favourite Scandinavian yogurt strains - simple, rich, custard-like Filmjolk; drinkable Piima; mild, creamy Viili; and honey-scented Matsoni.

Try them all and find what you like best!

Each bag contains:

  • 1x Viili Starter Culture: A Finnish yogurt variety, Viili is very mild and creamy, with a fairly thick consistency. It’s a versatile favorite that’s perfect on its own or in any yogurt recipe.
  • 1x Filmjölk Starter Culture: Another Finnish variety, Filmjölk has a tangy flavor reminiscent of cheese and a custard-like texture. 
  • 1x Matsoni Starter Culture:  Matsoni, from The Republic of Georgia, has a thin, custard-like texture with notes of honey. Its flavor is the most “yogurty” and is a popular choice for frozen yogurt.
  • 1x Piimä Starter Culture: Piimä, a Scandinavian variety, is very thin and drinkable with a mild flavor. Culture it with cream instead of milk to make a tasty sour cream-like topping.
  • Instructions for using this culture are included and may be found here.
