Bacillus Bulgaricus products are good for you. We tried to summarize the key points which make Bacillus Bulgaricus starters the best starters available on the market — the fully natural ingredients, the exceptional taste, the ease of use, the sustainable production, and many more. Read on and let us know if any questions.
Easy To Use
Bacillus Bulgaricus starters are easy-to-use no-fuss starters that make wonderful and delicious products. You don’t need any specific tools or equipment in order to make your own yogurt. Yogurt making has never been easier!
We run a tight short supply and distribution chain so our products are as fresh as possible when they reach you. All our products are made fresh and have 2+ years of shelf life. We supply our distributors about once a month (and often more frequently) with about a month-worth of stock. Once they leave the factory, it takes about 2-7 days for the packs to reach your local distributor. When your local distributors ships your order it takes 2-3 days on average for it to reach you. That makes your packs about a month old, leaving them more than 23 months of shelf life left.
Our yogurt starters contain minute quantity of dried organic skim milk powder. It’s the medium on which the strains grow and part of it gets packaged together with them. So the starters are NOT lactose free. However, it is very unlikely that you will be eating the starter directly and it is very likely that you will be using it to prepare yogurt. When you do this, during incubation, all the milk powder from the starter is completely consumed by the bacteria. What is more the bacteria gobbles up all the lactose from the milk you used to make your yogurt. As a result, the yogurt you just made is completely lactose free.
The ready-made yogurt, Greek yogurt, rose yogurt, kefir and sourdough are lactose-free. The sirene and kashkaval you make with dairy-yogurt are NOT lactose free.
Note: If you are lactose intolerant or have allergies to lactose, always use precaution and talk to your doctor first before using any products that may contain lactose.

100% Food Safe Recyclable Packaging
Our packages are 100% food safe and compliant with current legislation. The sachets our starters come in are also recyclable, making them environmentally friendly. The packs consist of three layers – a top layer made of white aluminum foil, lined by two thin internal layers (12μm and a 50μm) of common polymer resins, which are suitable for contact with food and insure that the starter is well preserved during storage and transportation. The two internal layers make up only a very small part of the packaging and are not avoidable according to the current state of art for long term safety storage packaging of bacterial cultures. All materials used in the packaging are commonly recyclable and while the sachet contains those two layers of common polymer resins, in addition to the outer aluminum foil layer, it is considered to be virtually plastic free (packaging is free from plastic for at least 96.99%).
The label affixed to the sachet is made of paper with a thin coating of a common polymer resin, which is also fully food safe and recyclable.
Heirloom Starter Cultures
All our starters are heirloom. That means you can use your previously made yogurt to make new yogurt. Often, other companies would sell you the much cheaper DVS version of the starter, which makes the same type of yogurt but is meant for production as it cannot be re-cultured. sachet our starters come in is made of aluminium foil and is fully recyclable. Our starters are 100% heirloom and reculturable.

Healthy Ingredients You Control

Hand Inspected For Quality
We use a packaging machine but other than that we rely on all good human touch when making our Bacillus Bulgaricus starters. There is a reason why your contents and date of expiration are hand-written on each label and that is because we inspect every sachet making sure that everything is as it should be.
Our starters are among the most affordable on the market.

There is no need to continually buy new yogurt starter. Yes, we just told you that you don’t need to buy our starter ever again, unless you want more of it, of course!
How about paying once and then having yogurt for the rest of your life? Or longer than that? I am not kidding. The bacteria in the yogurt can outlive you. The live active bacteria in our yogurt starter continues to live in your yogurt and all you have to do is store a little bit of yogurt from the one you made and use it for making your next batch. And again. And again. When stored properly you can repeat that process to infinity giving you an endless supply of yogurt.
