Now you can produce beautifully mild and creamy organic yoghurt, more simply than ever - with our Biogarde® and Bioghurt® culture set. Add these proven dairy cultures for consistent end-product quality that consumers love. Delicious!

Dairy cultures suitable for organic dairy

As the trend for a milder, more subtle yoghurt flavor continues to grow among health-conscious consumers, our Biogarde® and Bioghurt® cultures offer manufacturers a genuine competitive advantage. Take advantage of both known brands and label your organic dairy!

Not only do these dairy cultures deliver a wonderfully mild, clean and smooth flavor in organic yoghurt and quark, but the latest Biogarde® and Bioghurt Direct-Vat Cultures (DVC) range can be added directly to the milk vat during processing, greatly improving your efficiency.

What’s more, because of their low post-acidification profile, these cultures have excellent shelf life stability in organic yoghurt compared to traditional equivalents.

A proven dairy concept you can trust

While the trend for health & wellness may be relatively new, the science behind Biogarde® and Bioghurt is long-proven. Both are established yoghurt brands in their own right across Northern Europe (especially in Germany and the Netherlands) and were created by the respected German scientist Joseph Schwaiger back in 1956.

More than 60 years later our team at DSM is continuing his great work in enabling you to produce healthier food for everyone.
