Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between a yogurt starter culture and off-the-shelf pre-mixed yogurts?

Those “health-conscious” yogurts found in supermarkets may contain some beneficial bacteria cultures, but not nearly as much compared to a dedicated starter culture. They also tend to be packed with unhealthy additives and sugars, flavouring, and gluten that can potentially make them the opposite of healthy. Your best bet is to seek out plain, simple yogurts with no needlessly added “extras” from reputable brands, mixing them with our starter culture. Combine with flax, superfoods such as blueberries or other healthy additions for a well-balanced start to your day.

Can I take my yogurt starter culture powder with me on trips?

You certainly can – in fact, we recommend it as it is a proactive way to ensure a healthier diet when travelling. Our powder-based probiotics can be stored in room-temperature conditions for up to three months, and up to two months in warmer areas. However, for optimal longevity, keep yours refrigerated whenever possible. 

What does CFU stand for?

CFU is a term that stands for colony-forming unit. This is used for us to determine how many of each microbe culture is included per gram. For instance, with our yogurt starter cultures 1 and 2, you will benefit from 200 billion CFU per gram, guaranteed at the time of expiration.

What if I’m unsure which yogurt culture is right for me?

No worries there. Our team at Custom Probiotics is happy to explain the benefits of each microbe culture included in the starter that interests you.
