What is mesophilic yogurt?

Madame Ferment’s vegourt ferment is a mesophilic ferment.

Unlike thermophilic yogurts, which need a temperature of around 40°c to ferment, mesophilic strains ferment at room temperature.

In terms of taste, mesophilic and thermophilic soy yoghurt may differ in subtle ways. Mesophilic soy yogurt tends to have a milder, more delicate taste, with slightly acidic notes. Thermophilic soy yogurt, on the other hand, can have a stronger, slightly more acidic taste.

A food with many benefits

Yogurt has a long history stretching back thousands of years. Originating in Central Asia, it was discovered by nomadic populations who realized that fermented milk offered health benefits.

It is an excellent source of protein, calcium and B vitamins, which promote healthy bones, muscles and nerves. What’s more, yoghurt contains probiotics that benefit the intestinal flora, improving digestion and boosting the immune system. It can also help maintain a healthy weight, promote satiety and control appetite.

What’s more, yoghurt can contribute to heart health thanks to its unsaturated fatty acid content.

The advantages of making homemade yogurt

There are many advantages to making homemade yogurt.

Firstly, from an economic point of view, making your own yoghurt cuts costs compared with commercial yoghurts: 1 liter of yoghurt will cost you the same as a liter of soya milk, i.e. around 1.50 euros.

From an ecological point of view, making your own yoghurt has a significant advantage in helping to reduce single-use plastic packaging waste. Indeed, by opting for artisanal yogurt-making, you can use reusable containers, eliminating the need to buy individual yogurts pre-packaged in plastic.

By making homemade yoghurt, you also have total control over the ingredients you use. You can choose quality, organic ingredients, avoid unwanted additives and even experiment with different flavors and textures to suit your preferences.

It’s important to note that many plant-based yogurts available in stores are not actually fermented, but rather thickened with agents. By making your own yoghurt at home, you can be sure of getting a living product, full of health-promoting probiotics and all the benefits of fermentation.

Multiple uses for yogurt

As well as being a must-have dessert on its own, yogurt is a versatile ingredient that can enhance the texture, flavor and nutritional value of many culinary preparations. Here are just a few of the ways yogurt can be used in cooking:

Binding agent: Yogurt can be used as a binding agent in recipes, replacing eggs or cream. It can help bind ingredients together and give a creamy consistency to dishes.

Marinade: Thanks to its thick texture and light acidity, it helps tenderize foods and add flavor.

Sauce: Yogurt can be made into a sauce by adding herbs, spices, garlic, lemon or other ingredients as desired. It is often used in Mediterranean, Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine to accompany main courses.

Cream substitute: Yogurt can replace cream in many recipes, reducing the fat content while adding a creamy texture. It can be used in soups, sauces, desserts and many other preparations.

Baking: Yogurt can be added to baking recipes to add lightness and moisture to cakes, muffins, breads and cookies. It can also be used to prepare icings or toppings for desserts.

Smoothies and drinks: Yogurt can be used as a base for smoothies and shakes. It adds a creamy texture and helps make drinks more satiating.

For successful homemade yogurts

Opt for a high-quality soy milk

To make yogurt with a firm consistency, it’s recommended to use a high-quality unsweetened soy milk, which you can typically find in organic stores. If your soy yogurt doesn’t have the desired texture, it might be due to the quality of the soy milk used. Indeed, yogurt made with certain soy milks can result in a less dense consistency, more like a drinkable yogurt.

Always set aside ferment

Always remember to take a small amount of your homemade yogurt to keep as a ferment for your next preparations. The quantity to keep is 2 tsp/500ml of milk. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container until use. Thus, you will always have a quality starter available to guarantee the success of your future yoghurts.

Prepare a yogurt every week

It is essential to maintain a regular production of yogurt. Indeed, if you do not produce yogurt for an extended period, the strain may weaken or even lose its fermentation power. So be sure to make a fresh yogurt at least once a week to nourish and keep your strain healthy, ensuring optimal results with every brew.
