Yogurt Starter - Any pareve or chalav Yisroel out there?

MaineKosher | Jan 27, 201007:39 AM

I'm trying to make kosher chalav Yisroel yogurt at home. My little one, and us, love it. We stock up whenever in NY or Boston or Montreal but it's so easy to make at home.

Problem is, the only starters I can find are not certified kosher or, made on chalav stam (not chalav Yisroel) media. You can use a store-bought yogurt with active cultures, but those batches fade out relatively quickly.

Does anyone know of a source for pareve or chalav Yisroel starter?

Has anyone tried to open and use probiotic capsules with active cultures?

I found an industrial source of starter out of New Jersey but they sell barrels of it at a time, and not to consumers.

Any ideas appreciated.
