New stocks of our best-selling varieties of yoghurt cultures from CheeseLinks in Melbourne have just arrived.
They are so easy to make and incredibly economical, costing only a few cents / litre + you choose the milk you want to use and there’s NO milk powder or other fillers. Each packet makes 250 litres and keeps for at least a year in the freezer. Share one with friends!
Heat milk of your choice to 90C (about 8 minutes), allow to cool to 45C (about 20 minutes), stir in a pinch of the culture granules and leave in a warm place for 12 hours. Then chill. I make it in the morning, leave it to do its thing all day, refrigerate it at night and its cold, ready to eat for breakfast.
Here is some information about the two cultures I am selling:
CaBY is a smooth, mild yoghurt with the well-known acidophilus and bifidus strains of bacteria which we call probiotics.
Probiotics are organisms which live in the intestinal tract and assist the body in the digestion of food and absorption of nutrients.
YC380 has a stronger flavour and contains 2 other, less advertised but amazing probiotics:
Streptococcus thermophilus is best known for it’s gastrointestinal health benefits owing to the presence of its strain in the human intestines. Probiotic yoghurt containing thermophilus strain forms one of the most effective ways of preventing rotavirus diarrhea in children. Besides, it is also beneficial for rendering and monitoring stable growth in children. Another benefit that this lactic acid bacteria has been observed to have, is its antioxidative ability.
Streptococcus thermophilus has an important role alleviating symptoms of lactose intolerance and other gastrointestinal disorders. Streptococcus thermophilus is part of the same family as the strep throat infection. This good bacteria has antioxidant properties, protecting the intestinal tract from free radicals and assisting in the resistance of colon cancer formation.
Lactobacillus is a bacterium normally found in the mouth, intestinal tract, and vagina. Lactobacillus is used for preventing mouth sores and vaginal infections caused by bacteria and yeast infections. Humans appear to have a symbiotic relationship with this bacteria. As much as antibiotics are used to cure infections in the body, probiotics can help prevent them in the first place.
- Often used to prevent and stop diarrhea in both adults and children
- Lactobacillus helps your body to absorb dairy products. It can enable someone who is lactose intolerant to consume dairy products by breaking down the lactose from foods to a more suitable form
- In both the food industry and in supplements lactobacillus has a positive effect on nutrient bio availability.
- Lactobacillus is a strong probiotic, being one of the healthiest choices of consumption, it has been considered by some to be even more important than vitamin C.
- Lactobacillus based foods help you get the right amount of “good” and “bad” bacteria inside of your body. If you do not have a good ratio, no amount of minerals and vitamins will do you any good.
- Aids production of vitamin B and vitamin K
- Sustains optimal blood pressure level
- Supports efficient inflammatory response
- Promotes optimal fungal and viral levels
- Aids metabolism and breakdown of toxins
- Promotes mineral and vitamin absorption
- Can be easily stored
- No conflict with other vitamins, minerals, amino acids and any other medications
- Lactobacillus are able to translocate and survive in the spleen and other organs for many days. They may even stimulate the immune system and get your defense system up and running.
- Some researchers have found that some strains of lactobacillus can stimulate powerful defense cells like the natural killer cells and also increase the anti-viral chemicals like interferon.
