Since Cultures for health would like me to review the Caldwell Starter Culture that I purchased and I haven't yet used it, I can only review the purchasing and shipping of this product. I had no problems with the purchase of this product and it arrived in one piece in a reasonable period of time. Thank you Cultures for health. Now when I actually use my cultures, I'll be glad to review the product.
