I am primal and have been thinking of making yogurt out of Good Earth Farms milk. It's really the only non-traditional milk available to me besides Horizon brand. It claims to be "pasture-raised" but what exactly does it mean? I can't... (more)
it probably has a lot of weird food colorings, gums, and sugars. i'd avoid it if it were me, but if you are generally healthy and not affected by junk food, then a little splurge won't hurt!

As the subject line states, what cultures do you recommend for fermenting milk? Should one use a mix? And how does the fermenting process change depending on the different cultures you use? I guess some cultures need different temperatures and... (more)

For a long time I have been avoiding dairy unless I can get unpasteurized/unhomogenized grass-fed dairy products. Recently I have a craving for yogurt. I always loved the texture of yogurt and how you can put fruit in it and how it is so yummy.... (more)
I tried to ferment a yam (it was bright orange- not sure the species) by cooking it, mashing it, adding a few drips of yogurt, and putting it in an air-tight container on top of my freezer where it is warm. The first 2 days it tasted sweet and... (more)
I want to make Raw Milk yogurt by the Viili culture starter from Cultures for Health, but it says if using Raw Milk, that it has to be heated to 160 degrees and cooled, before using it to make yogurt. Isn't the point of using Raw Milk not to heat... (more)
I'm having a hard time finding grass fed yogurt. I realize it's not the most Paleo food but my daughter eats it and if I don't give it to her she'll likely end up eating something worse. Where can I find it? I tried the mother of all Whole Foods,... (more)
The easy solution would be to buy grass-fed raw milk. However, if we make yogurt using pasteurized, homogenized milk, are there any risks associated with this? (Oxidized cholesterol, denatured proteins...etc etc).

I answered a similar question yesterday about boiled eggs, where my opinion was "not safe"--but these are different. Yogurt and cheese both represent food preservation techniques. Yogurt has beneficial bacteria that out-compete harmful ones and... (more)
I'm new to the Paleo diet and at the stage of being ready to test new foods. I already know I can't have milk because I've previously been on a milk and gluten-free diet and tested these things. I don't have a lactose intolerance which means it's... (more)
I know there are a lot of discussions on yogurt out there, but none on how frequently one can/ does eat it. I make my own homemade yogurt and ferment it for 24 hours to get rid of some of the lactose. Since I do this, how safe is it for me to... (more)
