Piima Cream - does anyone here make it or know how too?

Answered on August 19, 2014

And what are the nutritional benefits over regular cream?

I have been making kefir and like that - it is certainly doing my digestion a lot of good. Lots of probiotics, I believe.

But I don't know how to make piima cream, or where to get the starter or whatever is used. I'm in the UK and would hope to buy some here...

In the US I've never seen it for retail. I got some from farmers when I was WAP. Tasty, thick stuff. I'd think the benefits were from the fermentation: good bacteria.

Hey, so I've never heard of Piima Cream and took to the intertubes to see what it was.. and I want to eat some! I gave you the link in a comment to the official Piima site, there is a recipe link for Piima Cream on the right of the landing page, here it is again so you have in one place:

culturesforhealth.com/piima-yogurt-starter.html

I don't know what exact benefits Piima would bring, I'm sorry, but in general.. cultured dairy can lower cholesterol, strengthen an immune system, and help people keep a healthy gut - just to name a few.

Hope this helps, good luck!

I've now found viili, and two others as well as piima. It is really hard to decide which I want - probably start with piima. I want to add cream to it to make a sort of creme freche.

Anyway, thanks jeuisjuba for the link!!

"Piimä" means butter milk in finnish. Theres also "viili" which is a special finnish yogurt.
