heating milk for yogurt

polyhymnia | Jul 15, 2007 11:57 PM

I just bought a Salton 1 quart yogurt maker and the instructions in it say to heat the milk just below boiling before putting it in the yogurt maker. Is this really necessary? I recall reading somewhere that because milk is now pasteurized the proteins are broken down enough already and you don't need to do this prior to making yogurt anymore. Thoughts? Has anyone tried it w/ compared to w/o heating it?
