The process of stirred yogurt production involves fermenting milk and other ingredients such as milk powders and then stirring the coagulated yoghurt to cool it down before filling into containers. This stirring or pumping action smooths the yoghurt and also enables the addition of fruit preparations and purees to be added before packing. The vast majority of yoghurts on sale today are made using this method. We have a wide selection of starter cultures suitable for stirred yoghurt production: YO-MIX® 200, 300, 400 series.

Yogurt cultures for yogurt making - YO-MIX®

The YO-MIX® 100 group of yogurt cultures contains multiple lactic acid bacteria. The distinguishing feature here is that all cultures in this group contain Lactobacillus lactis. This group is suitable for mild or drinking yogurts.

The YO-MIX® 200 group of cultures is another multiple species group, with the distinguishing feature that these all contain Bifidbacterium lactis and Lactobacillus lactis, making them suitable for content claim labelling. Generally speaking all of the cultures in the 200 group are suitable for stirred, set or drinking yogurt.

The YO-MIX® 300 group of cultures is designed for the production of  low viscosity fermented products such as drinking yogurts where mildness is a key distinguishing characteristic.

YO-MIX® 400 group is the sister group to the 300 series in that its key feature is mildness. However it is designed for use where high thickness is required, which makes it suitable for thick stirred and set yogurt production.

The YO-MIX® 600 group is a traditional group of cultures that have that characteristic traditional highly flavoured sharpness, so are suited to all non-mild tasting yogurt and fermented products. This group is also referred to as the “Real strong” cultures because of their strong taste. These give medium thickness.
