Yogurt Starter Culture – Pack of 4 Freeze Dried Sachets for Genuine Bio Yogurt

The mildly sour-tasting yogurt, kiselo mlyako (sour milk) is undoubtedly the best and the healthiest of all dairy products that are available to consumers nowadays. The western world calls it Bulgarian yogurt but in its homeland, Bulgaria, it’s called sour milk. Whatever the name, this wonderful probiotic food has impeccable ancestry – it is believed to have been known for at least 4000 years. For yogurt to be considered of the Bulgarian variety, it needs to be made with two specific starter bacteria, Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus. It is the particular combination of bacteria that characterizes the thickness, acidity, taste and aroma of the yogurt. Kiselo mlyako’s uniqueness lies in the peculiarities in the climate of the region and the very specific way in which it is prepared – using a combination of the two strains: Lactobacillus Bulgaricus and Streptococcus Thermophilus. The Streptococcus Thermophilus bacteria goes into action first and prepares the perfect environment for Lactobacillus Bulgaricus, which in turn starts multiplying and slowly turns the milk into yogurt. People who have tasted yogurt from a dozen countries outside the Balkans always find that none of them tastes anything like the Bulgarian variety. Bulgarians completely agree that their yogurt is the best – some 400 000 tons are consumed every year in the country. Their antimicrobial activity contributes to the processes of maintaining the healthy balance of all necessary micro-organisms for the digestive tract. They also helping in the processes of eliminating bad cholesterol, detoxifying and anti-cancerogenic overall effect, as well as immune system booster.

Yogurt Starter Culture – Pack of 10 Freeze Dried Sachets for Genuine Bio Yogurt

History Balkan’s long and affectionate relationship with yogurt dates back to the Thracians, ancient inhabitants of the Balkan Peninsula before more than 3000 years when stock-breeders placed sheep’s milk in lambskin bags around their waists and fermented yogurt using their own body heat. The word ‘yogurt’ is derived from the words for ‘thick’ and ‘milk’ in ancient Thracian. In the early 1900s, a Bulgarian scientist called Dr. Stamen Grigorov, found an agent causing Bulgarian yogurt fermentation – a specific bacillus. Grigorov went on to pinpoint two more bacteria: a Streptobacillus and a harmful Streptoccus thermophilus which coexisted with that Lactobacillus in what appeared to be a perfect symbiosis. He also discovered that these two bacteria are not part of the micro-flora that exists in the human intestinal tract; however, they turn out to be very beneficial to it when introduced in it. Interested in Dr. Grigorov’s discoveries, another scientist, the Russian Ilya Mechnikov, a Nobel Prize laureate in Physiology and Medicine, went on to discover that more people lived to the age of 100 in Bulgaria than in any of the 36 other countries he studied. He directly linked this to the country’s most traditional food – yogurt. According to Metchnikoff’s research, the ageing process results from the activity of putrefactive (proteolytic) microbes producing toxic substances in the large bowel. Based on these facts, Metchnikoff proposed that consumption of fermented milk would “seed” the intestine with harmless lactic-acid bacteria and decrease the intestinal pH and that this would suppress the growth of proteolytic bacteria, that he called “Bulgarian Bacillus”.
