So, what is kultúrák?

Kultúrák, also known as starter cultures, are essential ingredients used in the production of fermented foods such as yogurt, cheese, and sourdough bread. These cultures are composed of live microorganisms such as bacteria and yeast that are responsible for the unique taste, texture, and aroma of these foods. The specific combination of microorganisms used in a particular culture can vary, resulting in a wide range of flavor profiles and characteristics. Kultúrák play a crucial role in the fermentation process, helping to break down sugars and transform them into the tangy, complex flavors that make these foods so beloved.
