This direct-set yogurt starter can be used with non-dairy milks such as soy and rice milk. Each box makes 8 batches of yogurt.


A blend of lactic acid bacteria specifically selected for use in making dairy-free yogurt, this culture has a mild yogurt flavor with a smooth texture and slightly weak viscosity. Ideally suited for soy or rice milk.

This is a direct-set yogurt starter and cannot be recultured (see below).

  • Vegan non-GMO yogurt starter
  • For use with non-traditional milks such as soy milk, rice milk, and nut milks. (Please note: while rice milk and nut milks can be cultured, they often won’t thicken and additional thickening agents may be needed (click the tab) to obtain a yogurt-like consistency.)
  • Requires a yogurt maker or similar heating appliance
  • Direct-set yogurt starter
  • Contains 8 packets; each packet makes 1 to 2 quarts yogurt.

Instructions: Heat 1 to 2 quarts non-dairy milk (soy, rice, etc.) to 110°F. Add one packet of starter and incubate at 108°F for 6 to 10 hours or until the mix has formed a smooth creamy texture. Chill immediately to below 70°F to halt the culturing process. Continue to cool overnight in the refrigerator or simply mix in any desirable flavors and enjoy. If larger quantities of yogurt are desired, two packets can be added to 1 to 4 gallons of non-dairy milk.

Vegan yogurt starter does not consist of, nor does it contain, nor is it produced from genetically modified organisms.

Produced or packaged in a facility that also manufactures products made with wheat, dairy, soy, eggs, nuts, and fish.
What is a direct-set culture? A direct-set culture is a one-time-use culture and cannot be recultured (i.e., perpetuated beyond the single batch). Direct-set cultures require no maintenance or care. Simply store the packets in the refrigerator or freezer and use the necessary portion for your recipe when it’s time to make yogurt. Most direct-set cultures contain multiple packets in each box to inoculate multiple batches.
