Does honey kill yogurt bacteria?
Because of the high sugar content of honey, it is easily fermented into an alcoholic, honey-wine beverage known as mead. Most yogurt goes through a pasteurization process, which means it was treated with heat to kill off any harmful bacteria that might be in it.
Can I use regular yogurt as a starter?
You can go one of two ways with your starter: You can use a few spoonfuls of a store-bought yogurt that you like, or you can buy a powdered starter from the store (or online). I prefer using a few spoonfuls of plain yogurt, but the strain tends to weaken as you use it over subsequent batches.
Can I use fruit yogurt as a starter?
Learning How to Make Yogurt A note on starters when learning how to make homemade yogurt: you can’t use flavored yogurt as a starter culture – the flavorings inhibit the fermentation process. This means you can’t flavor it until the next day, after the batch is finished and refrigerated.
Can I use vanilla Greek yogurt as a starter?
Vanilla Yogurt Ingredients: 1/2 cup yogurt starter (Any yogurt with live cultures works. I’d recommend plain or vanilla. Once you make your first batch, simply save 1/2 cup of the yogurt to use as starter for your next batch.)

Why does Greek yogurt taste so bad?
But, first of all, why is it so bitter? Well, turns out that after the fermentation process, Greek yogurt is strained more times than regular yogurt. This makes it have that signature thick texture and, most importantly, brings out the strong and bitter flavors that bacteria may cause once the yogurt is fermented.
Why Greek yogurt is bad for you?
1. Because Greek yogurt can be made with bones and bugs. As with many yogurts, some Greek varieties add gelatin, which is made by boiling animals’ skin, tendons, ligaments, or bones. Many also add carmine to make the yogurt appear to contain more fruit than it does.
