Watch How It's Made

Each bag contains:

  • 1 packet of each culture: Viili, Filmjölk, Matsoni, and Piimä 

Instructions for using these cultures are included and may be found here.

Heirloom Starter Cultures Included in the bag:

  • 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.
  • Filmjölk Starter Culture: Another Finnish variety, Filmjölk has a tangy flavor reminiscent of cheese and a custard-like texture. 
  • 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.
  • 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.

Tasty Heirloom Cultures

I love these cultures. They are so easy to make! They work best with cow’s milk; are very thin (although tasty) with goat milk. A packet used to include 2 of each variety, this latest order only included 1 of each for the same price.
