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

Amazing so easy and forgiving

I am French and I have been longing for Fromage blanc for many years. it was so easy and forgiving to make. In my haste to make the cheese, I overheated the milk then cooled it too much, in short, I did not start at the recommended temperature. Then I was cooking ratatouille at the same time and mixed up the spoons! When i stirred the culture in the milk, disaster, I used the ratatouille spoon and there were all these herbs floating which I skimmed in panic also removing some of the precious culture! Well after 18h of rest, 4h of drainage in the fridge and a quick whip with the egg ******, I had a bowl of the most perfect, testy, creamy Fromage blanc like I remembered from my youth. I can’ t wait to try my chèvre culture and I know my friends to whom I have given the chèvre kit for Christmas will love it too. The only suggestion I would have is to make smaller doses of the culture for a half gallon of milk. Happy New Year!

Super easy starter

I love the pleasant flavor, I make my soft cheeses with my raw goat milk and this is the perfect culture to use for a creamy and smooth soft cheese. My family's go to and its super simple to make for beginners!

Tried making Quark for the first time. Followed your recipe and it made a very tasty product. I will definitely be making more. Will probably try some other types of simple cheese too.

A new family Favorite

This was one of the first cheeses I made. And now its a weekly even for me. If you LOVE cream cheese or Cream Cheese style cheese this is the way to go. All you need is 1 packet out of the bag, some Calcium chloride (they sell it and honestly if you want to make cheese, yogurt, and such you need to buy it anyway) and a gallon of milk and you get somewhere around 5 bricks of better than cream cheese. add salt to taste (the kids in my house wont touch it with out the right amount)
