Why you should buy this starter

You should buy this yogurt starter if you are looking for a no-fuss yogurt starter which is easy to use and makes thick, creamy and absolutely delicious yogurt.

Our yogurt starter contains lactic acid bacteria isolated from natural sources in ecologically preserved areas in Bulgaria. It produces yogurt of exceptional quality with smell and taste like nothing you can find in the store or make with any other yogurt starter.

Ivo’s Bacillus Bulgaricus starters are extremely durable and do not need to be refrigerated during transportation. The freeze-drying process we use guarantees that the live active bacteria is actually live at the time you start making yogurt.

All starters come with easy to follow instructions that guarantee success every time. With or without using an yogurt maker. Remember — it is easy to make yogurt!

Ivo’s Bacillus Bulgaricus starters are completely natural.

They do not contain sucrose, GMP, gluten, or any other additives.

Actually they do not contain anything else but the bacterial strains noted on the labels. And they contain a lot of those, more precisely billions and billions of the right kind of bacteria, compared to the store-brand yogurts and most of the other starters on the market, which have unclear contents or only contain bacteria in the millions. This is also the reason why our starters always work. Your yogurt will never be runny when you make it with Ivo’s Bacillus Bulgaricus!

In fact, we are so confident that you will love the yogurt which this yogurt starter makes, that we are offering 100% satisfaction guarantee. If the yogurt doesn’t set after you follow the instructions or even if you don’t like the taste of the yogurt, simply let us know and we will be happy to make things right.

No other product’s guarantee comes close to this.

And if you need more reasons – just keep reading.

It is super easy to use and it makes delicious yogurt

If you are looking for a no-fuss yogurt starter which is easy to use and makes thick, creamy and absolutely delicious yogurt then you should buy Ivo’s Bacillus Bulgaricus starter. In my 20 or so years of yogurt making I’ve never had more consistent and tasty results than what I’m getting when using this yogurt starter. Yogurt is absolutely easy to make, the whole process is basically 6 steps with minimal effort (i.e. mix, stir, cover) and the result is super delicious. I can also easily control the thickness of the yogurt by using milk with different (higher) fat content or by adding half-and-half to my milk, however the results I’m getting in terms of thickness when using 1.5% milk are more than enough for me. The yogurt sets quickly, is thick, creamy, and not runny. Never, not once. How about you? Have you ever got this consistent results with an yogurt starter? Maybe you had but chances are that you haven’t.

You know the exact ingredients

It might seem strange but the majority of companies that sell starters do not list the bacteria that their starters contain. I am sure you’ve seen your fait share of the general “live cultures” or “…may contain the following…” ingredients messages. I’m sure those companies have their own reasons for doing that (for example if they are sourcing their products from multiple suppliers and the contents vary between each supplier, or if they are freeze-drying the starters themselves from commercial ready-products and are not sure what strains are present in them) but whatever the reason — that’s not right.

You need to know what is in your starter because you need to know goes in your body when you eat the yogurt that you made yourself.

That is why we are always upfront about the probiotics in each of our excellent Bacillus Bulgaricus starters. We share with you the exact contents of each starter — simply head on to the product info page for the starter you are interested in and see an honest list of ingredients with the exact strains it contains.

Natural and healthy ingredients

Our starters contain lactic acid bacteria isolated from natural sources in ecologically preserved areas in Bulgaria. All of our starters produce yogurt of exceptional quality with smell and taste like nothing you can find in the store or make with any other starter. Our starters are fully natural. They do not contain sucrose. Actually they do contain anything else but the bacterial strains noted on the labels and a minute quantity of dried organic skim milk powder – the medium on which the strains are grown.

You can make yogurt for as long as you want

How about paying once for yogurt starter 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. I do recommend that every now and then you use some fresh starter — just to mix it up a bit but it is entirely up to you if you want to do that. And if the largest size on this website (the Infinity pack) is not enough for you, let me know and I’ll send you a custom made size.

We have local distributors in many regions so we can quickly ship your order to you. The culture is also durable enough to travel to even the warmest and most remote parts of the world, in case it turns out we need to ship it to you from farther away. So buy with confidence!

You come first

It’s our belief that you, our customer, come first. That is why we do our best to help you find what you are looking for — which we guess is the best yogurt in the world 🙂 — and get that to you. We try our best to tell you as much as we can about our products so you can make an informed decision if our products are good for you. If you get them – that’s great! But even if you decide to go elsewhere, that’s also fine with us. We are not going to chase you or ask you to stay or do anything to try to trick you into buying our products if you think they are not right for you. That’s not how we operate.

Look around — there are no advertisements popping up on this website, there are no annoying messages chasing you as you browse our pages, and you are not going to see ads in your Social Media feeds after you leave our website. And even when you buy from us, we are not going to overwhelm you with annoying emails. Even when you decide to sign up for our newsletter, you’d still get only an occasional email from me with discount offers or product news. And we send those once a month, if that.

So it really is all about what’s best for you. When you are happy, we are happy!

We use no unnecessary packaging, no pretty wrappers, no promotional flyers, no extra inserts. And if you need any additional information, there is a ton available online on our site. Help is also just an email, instant message or a phone call away. And what better way to reduce your own plastic footprint by making your own yogurt at home!

That’s why we give you the option to try any of our products free — simply add the products that you’d like to your cart and, at checkout, choose the starter that you want to try — we’ll add it to your order absolutely free — our gift to you.

It is cheaper this way

There was a paragraph up above, which explained how you can make new yogurt from the yogurt that you already made. Indefinitely! Now just think for a moment how much money you can save on yogurt if you reuse yogurt from your previous batch. One packet of yogurt culture can be used to make unlimited amounts of homemade yogurt. There is no need to continually buy new yogurt starter. It probably is already obvious but I will go ahead and tell you that making yogurt at home is an economical option that saves you nearly 80% compared to buying yogurt at the grocery store. Money you can then spend on buying the things you love to put in your yogurt – honey, berries, granola, anything you like your yogurt with.

SCD diet friendly — no bifidus

Our starters do not contain the bifidus bacteria. The reasons for that are two: one, bifidus tend to make the taste of yogurt blander and two, the Bifidobacterium (frequently shortened to Bifidus) is considered a big no-no for people on the SCD diet. In fact, our Bulgarian yogurt starter is the go-to, SCD diet recommended starter culture because it contains two, and only two strains: l. bulgaricus and s. themophilus. Nothing else. No “other”, “unknown” or “miscellaneous additional” bacteria which are frequently listed under “Ingredients:” on commercial yogurt containers. Interesting fact is that I’ve yet to find any commercial yogurt that doesn’t contain bifidus.

Worry-free purchase

All our products come with a 100% no-questions asked money-back guarantee. Try them and if you don’t like them for any reason or decide that they are not right for you, I will refund your money — no questions asked.

No other company’s products warranty comes close to this.

If the yogurt doesn’t set after you have followed the instructions or even if you simply don’t like the taste of the yogurt that it makes, simply let me know. I will refund your money. I will even take on the credit card fees.

The way our guarantee works and the general refund conditions are well described in our Terms and Conditions.

Worry-free delivery

Our starters are extremely durable and do not need to be refrigerated during transportation.

The freeze-drying process we use guarantees that the active bacteria is LIVE at the time you start making yogurt. It doesn’t matter if you live in Arizona or the Sahara Desert and if it is scorching outside. I have actually tested the durability of the culture by leaving it on top of the radiator for a month and then used it to make yogurt. Boom, nailed it like every other time.

So if you worry about ordering online because your starter could get spoiled or die on its way to you, then don’t. There is nothing to worry about.

We ship to any part of the World from one of our many distribution hubs and it usually takes between 1 and 8 days for the yogurt starter to reach you, which is much shorter than the month I left that yogurt starter on top of the radiator. The starters also come with easy to follow instructions that guarantee success every time. With and without using an yogurt maker. Remember – it is easy to make yogurt!

Don’t trust me! Trust our clients

You don’t have to take my word for it — take it from all the satisfied customers who have tried the starter, many of them over and over again.

See some 15k+ testimonials here.

Or you can try the starters yourself and see if you like them.

I’m pretty sure you will 🙂
