“Lowest Carb Yogurt I Can Find”

I was at the store looking for the keifer my wife had gotten me and something about your whole milk yogurt made me look at it, I was amazed by the number of carbs I have been fighting with IBS and diabetes that got worse after my kidney transplant. I went keto when I was getting 399 as a fasting blood sugar on 2 different insulins. Your yogurt has helped substantially with the IBS I feel like a normal person most days now. Your yogurt is the lowest carb yogurt I can find and that helps me stay low carb and probiotic. I like the jars too. I am so glad you sent my wife coupons. We both had transplants and my paycheck doesn't stretch like it used to. - Ed

Yogurt Sourdough Starter

Ingredients:
2 Tbsp. White Mountain Foods Bulgarian Yogurt
1 c. milk
½ c. whole wheat flour
½ c. unbleached white flour

Directions:
Heat milk until it reaches 100ºF on a thermometer. Remove from heat and stir in yogurt. Pour mixture into a clean plastic container, cover tightly and let stand in a warm place for 18 to 24 hours. Be sure to punch a small hole in container lid to allow gases to escape. Mixture should resemble the consistency of yogurt. A curd should form and the mixture should not flow readily when the container is slightly tilted. If clear liquid rises to the top of mixture, simply stir it back in. If liquid or starter turns pink, discard mixture and start again. 

Mix flour. After curd has formed, gradually stir 1 cup flour into the starter until smoothly blended. Cover tightly and let stand in a warm place 85F (30C) until mixture is full of bubbles and has a good sour smell, approximately 2 to 5 days. If clear liquid forms on top of mixture, stir it back into starter. 

Each time you use part of your starter replenish it with equal amounts of warm milk (100ºF) and flour. Cover and let stand in a warm place several hours or overnight until it is full of bubbles. Store in refrigerator until needed. Starter should always be at room temperature before using. Low fat or skim milk may be used in place of whole milk. Always be consistent in type of milk used.

“The Taste Is Simply Amazing”

I rarely leave reviews, let alone for food products. Lately I've been having digestive issues, and have been trying out many different yogurt types. Once I tried the Whole Milk yogurt by White Mountain, I knew I'd be buying this every few days. I'm literally sitting at my computer eating it by the spoonful right now. I feel it's been slowly improving my digestive health, and the taste is simply amazing, not to mention such low sugar content and no additives. I doubt I'll ever go without having this in my fridge, both at home and work! - Jordan

Blueberry Yogurt Pie

Ingredients:

Filling:
1 c. White Mountain Foods Bulgarian Yogurt
2 eggs or egg substitute
3 Tbsp. honey
3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 c. blueberries, fresh or frozen

Crust:
⅓ c. butter
¼ c. honey
1 egg or egg substitute
½ c. unbleached white flour
½ c. whole wheat flour
½ tsp. baking powder

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350º. Grease and flour a 9 or 10-inch pie pan. Using an electric mixer or by hand, cream the butter and honey. Add the egg, and blend well. Combine the flour and baking powder and mix them into the wet ingredients to form a soft dough. With flour dusted fingers, pat the sticky dough into the bottom of the buttered and floured pie pan. Push the dough up to cover the sides of the pan. Refrigerate for at least as long as it takes to make the filling. Mix all the filling ingredients, except the blueberries, until smooth. Put the berries into the pie shell and gently pour in the filling so the berries are coated and evenly distributed. Bake for 50 - 60 minutes, until the crust is browned and the custard has set. Chill well before serving.

“Highly Recommend!”

Great yogurt! Even though it’s called Bulgarian, it also tastes as authentic Greek yogurt (the one they actually serve in Greece), not what they sell in USA. Have been looking for a product like that for a long time! Highly recommend! - Emil
