Fromage blanc starter culture is one of the most sensational finds we have made in all our years of cheesemaking. This wonderful cheese is easy to make and tastes amazing.

Fromage Blanc is similar to cream cheese with a delightfully rich flavor, but a fraction of the calories and cholesterol. It can be used in cooking or simply spread on your morning toast. It can also be made to have the texture of sour cream or a thick drained yogurt. Use either whole or skim milk to make it as lean or rich as you like.

This culture can be used to make a traditional German Quark

Easy and delicious

Great culture and as simple as it gets. Warm milk, add culture, wait 12 hours, drain for 12 hours, then enjoy. Shared with friends from France and they wanted your contact. Thanks!

Fromage Blanc C20 Culture

I am from Germany and one of the food items I miss the most here is Quark. Browsing the internet I found the Fromage Blanc C20 Culture reviews and was quite intrigued. Although still being highly sceptical I ordered the C20 Culture anyway - I was desperate. To my utter delight it turned out extremely well! I got the best yield (most Quark) using a highly pasteurized milk (H-Milch in German). Regular whole milk bought in the store did not work nearly as well. The Quark is so delicious and there is basically no difference to Quark bought in Germany. And it is so easy to make. I am very, very happy! Why didn't I try this out earlier?

Want to make cream cheese?

This is an excellent and easy way to make your own cream cheese! It’s ready overnight or you can drain longer for a dryer type of cream cheese. Add berries, lox, capers, etc.

I have bought this twice so far and all the packets have work perfectly. I am amazed at how easy it is to make my own Quark. It comes out delicious and I will never buy pre made yogurt or quark again. I follow the recipe posted on this site for making quark.

Great tips from other users make me love Fromage Blanc starter even more!

I first used the Fromage Blanc starter culture to make Belper Knolle cheese (which turned out wonderfully!). When my thoughts turned to Quark, I noticed a comment by Sergey, about how he used it to make Tvorog that brought back memories of his childhood. So I tried his method, and ended up with a really lovely bowl of soft, tasty goodness, which I topped with fruit from our trees. Thanks, Sergey, for sharing your method. Now I need to go buy some more milk, as more fruit is coming ripe. And thanks, New England Cheesemaking Supply, for offering such fantastic ingredients and expertise.
