    Woohoo! Sexy yogurt!!!

    Can the bacteria/cultures be found anywhere without buying live yogurt in the first place?

    Thank you!

    Yes, you can buy dry bacteria in packets, much like bakers yeast. But you can not make them from scratch, that requires a lab. Since wild bacteria can very easily be harmful to humans.

    You only need to get it once, after that, you can use the yogurt you made to start the next batch. Simply store a few table spoons of it in your freezer in a clean container. The sooner the better, consider yourself preserving a young and healthy strain of bacteria.

    Cool.

    Makes me wonder how they made this in the first place?

    I think they pick and choose in the lab. There is one yogurt manufacturer that actually engineers new strands in their labs.

    Just guessing here, probably it was uncontrolled/wild bacteria. Maybe people then did not or rather could not tell the good kind from the bad.
    But then again, people back then were smarter than we give them credit for. They could very possibly had a way to at least practice some control over the process.


    Fermentation has been known to humanity for thousands of years, yogurt is no different.

    I hear also that good bacteria can kill of bad bacteria like with antibiotics. The many different types of bacteria that grow on decaying organic matter are waging wars against each other all the time.
