Probiotic Vegetable & Dairy Culture for Lacto-Fermentation




Take advantage of this short-dated Veggie Culture. While it may be near or past its best before date, this will have little to no impact on the home fermenter if stored correctly. If the rate of activity drops in this culture, you may need to use a little more than normal however it is typical that this culture lasts long after (years) it's best before date when stored correctly. Get in while stocks last!

    and a selected strain of
  • Lactobacillus plantarum

How Does It Work?

  • Probiotic Vegetable & Dairy Culture is a protective culture inhibiting unwanted bacteria, yeasts and moulds.
  • May be applied in probiotic products such as fermented milk products and in cultured vegetables.
  • Multi-purpose probiotic culture that can be used to make probiotic products such as fermented milk products, including yoghurt and soft cheeses, or fermented food recipes such as saurkraut, kimchi, fermented juices, sauces and more.
  • To add probiotics to dairy yoghurt, simply sprinkle the culture powder directly into your milk at the same time as you add your yoghurt starter culture, ensuring that the culture is well dispersed by gentle stirring.

  • One sachet is also enough to add to 100 batches of yoghurt (1 litre batches).

Great to reduce salt use

I love that I can add this culture to ferment my vegies without needing to add a lot of salt.

Yoghurt XTRA Booster

By: on 8 August 2021
I have recently added the "Fermented Vegetable and Yoghurt" culture to my mild culture yoghurt, - previously boosted with "ABC Probiotic" culture. My yoghurt now contains a total of 9 different strains of culture rather the standard 3 strains. All for the same amount of work and negligable overall cost increase. Surely you cannot buy any commercially made yoghurt of this complexity. My yoghurt remains thick and creamy. Hoping for some long term beneficial results.

Best Kraut

By: on 23 June 2021
My order was received within a couple of days and the instructions on how to store the culture was very easy to understand. I recently made some sauerkraut using the Probiotic Vegetable & Dairy Culture. After an eight day ferment I was really please with the taste and texture. My husband's comment was that it was much better than the store bought brand we had been eating.
