what is vegan

Is yogurt starter vegan?

Yogurt starter is a unique blend of bacterial cultures used to ferment milk and create yogurt. It contains live and active cultures such as Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus, which break down lactose in milk to produce lactic acid, giving yogurt its signature tangy flavor and thick texture. Yogurt starters can be made from scratch using commercially available freeze-dried cultures or by reserving a small amount of yogurt from a previous batch. With its probiotic benefits and versatility in cooking and baking, yogurt starter has become a popular ingredient not just for making yogurt but also for creating healthy dips, dressings, and smoothies.

Yogurt starter is a non-vegan food ingredient.
