Yogurt question

  1. I want to make yogurt, but I don't eat a lot of it at a time. Can I freeze it without losing the beneficial "stuff" in it?

    Quote:Yes you can freeze yogurt, and it will not kill the live culture. It may slightly change the texture.

    Yogurt contains probiots. They are a benificial bacteria that aid in food digestion. Most yogurts contain 2-3 different types. Some, like Stoneyfields, contain 6 I think. We use the Stoneyfield for the starter cultures for our homemade yogurt. If you make yogurt, it will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. I have read it has more health benefits after it sits in the fridge for 5-7 days. After 14 days, it won't necessarily go bad, just lose its probiotics.
