Viili Yogurt Starter: Originating in Finland, it is also known as viila and is similar to other yogurts such as pitkapiimä, viilipiimä, langil, taette, tatmjölk, langmjölk and skyr. Perfect for use in parfaits or in place of sour cream in recipes. Of all our room-temperature (mesophilic) yogurt cultures, viili has the thickest consistency (viscous, almost jelly-like) and the mildest taste, making it our most popular yogurt culture particularly among customers switching their family off commercial yogurt. Please note: this is a non-ropey variety of viili. Our viili yogurt does not have a ropey texture but rather a more gelatinous, jelly-like texture.
How to Make Viili Yogurt: As a mesophilic culture, this viili yogurt cultures at room temperature. To make a batch of homemade yogurt, the viili starter is simply added to milk, stirred, and then allowed to culture on the counter before being placed in the refrigerator. A small amount of the current batch of homemade yogurt is then used to make the next batch and so on.
Please note that this is a live yogurt culture and therefore needs to be used as soon as you receive it.
