Matsoni is a heritage yogurt culture the originated in Georgia.

It is a mesophyllic yogurt culture, which means it doesn’t require any special heating, just room temperature to proliferate! Think, overnight yogurt! Practically magic 🙂

It has mild and slightly cheesy flavor, and can curdle well to make thick cheeses or yogurt spreads.

Heritage yogurt cultures have been traditionally heralded as an elixir of long life and health. These cultures are rich in beneficial bacteria, phosphorus, vitamin K, biotin and folic acid – nutrients that are essential to health and well-being. Studies show that cultured dairy may be particularly beneficial as they successfully protect beneficial bacteria from damage in the hostile environment of the digestive tract and acts as an anti-inflammatory.

This culture has been dried on a organic cotton pad so that it can travel well and once steeped in milk, will inoculate the milk with the unique bacteria of matsoni. Once the milk has properly curdled, discard of the cotton pad and continue to use the cultured milk for future batches.

As this is a heritage culture, it is a lifetime supply!
