    Default Yoghurt question

    After Castor having had sort of loose stools all his life we finally realised that he does better on food with lower protein levels, so now he's on James Wellbeloved lamb and vegs and is doing fine apart from the fact that he is almost constipated...so I add a spoon or two of Greek yoghurt to his food. He loves it and his tummy seems to do well on this addition. It just struck me, though, that perhaps the fat contents is too high? It's 10%. As Castor is a really slim guy I'm not at all concerned about fat from a weight perspective but rather from a pure health perspective.

    We use plain jane yogurt. Not greek. I am not a super save the planet eco freak by any means but the production process for greek yogurt creates 3 ounces of toxic waste for every 1 ounce of yogurt. Lol

    The production process creates a byproduct called acid whey which toxic and can't be released in to the environment. It has to be stored in a similar fashion as to how radioactive waste is stored.

    Eh. Never heard of this by product.
    You can make "greek" yogurt at home. We in India make it all the time, and we call it "dahi" in Hindi or plain old curd.

    Slowly heat milk and bring it to boil. Turn off heat and let it cool to lukewarm. Per liter of milk use 1 1/2 tbsp of greek or active yogurt as curdling agent.
    Set with a lid on top and keep it in your oven overnight (for about 12 hours). Oven is not turned on; it is required to keep it warm.
    Bacteria needs warmth to do its stuff. This is difficult in colder months than warmer months.

    Once you have curd you have active culture. This may be reused in a cyclical manner (new curd made every 2 days or so) for about 2 months.

    Cheers,
    Raghu

    Oh on a lighter note. If you fail the first few times attempting to make curd at home don't worry.
    Befriend an Indian or Pakistani and ask them how they make it at home.

    Thanks for all your replies! In Sweden, we eat a lot of yoghurt and other soured dairy products, and I gave opted for the Greek version to Castor as it isn't as sour in taste as the kind that we humans in this household eat. I do wonder about the fat level, though, and what you say about the production, @Marine91, makes me question my choice!
    @raghu, I believe that is similar to the way people here used to make soured milk! Now the shops are full of these products so noone makes them at home anymore, I think. It's very common here to have soured milk or yoghurt with some kind of cereal for breakfast.

    And I remember drinking lassi (I think that is the word?!) when I visited India many years ago. That was good!
