Product Description

Cultures for Health Viili Yogurt Starter Culture 

Originating in Finland, Viili is a thicker yogurt that thrives on cream. It is also known as Viila and is similar to other yogurts such as Pitkapiima, Viilipiima, langmjolk and skyr. Perfect for use in parfaits or in place of sour cream in recipes. Of all the Cultures for Health room-temperature (mesophilic) yogurt cultures, Viili has the thickest consistency (viscous, almost jelly-like) and the mildest taste, making it the most popular yogurt culture, and recommended if you are switching your family off commercial yogurt. 

Please note, this is a non-ropey variety of Viili. This Viili yogurt does not have a ropey texture but rather a more gelatinous, jelly-like texture.

  • Mild taste
  • Moderately thick yogurt
  • Cultures at 70-78°F
  • No yogurt maker required
  • Reusable culture; with care, a little from each batch can be used to make the next batch (see Other Details)

Serial Culture:
A box of Viili yogurt culture can be serial cultured: a small amount of homemade yogurt from the current batch is reserved to inoculate the next batch of homemade yogurt. With care, Viili culture can be used to make Viili yogurt indefinitely.
We ship enough yogurt culture to make two batches of yogurt to use as a mother culture for making larger batches of homemade yogurt. We recommend that you reserve the second packet in the fridge or freezer to use as a backup.
Alternative Milks:
Viili starter may be used with soy, coconut, etc. but is unlikely to reculture after a few batches. We recommend keeping a backup dairy-based culture when using other milks. Results with goat milk may be thinner than when made with whole cow milk.
