Yoghurt faq

2. How do I make yoghurt?
See: How to Make SCD yoghurt.

3. How long does yoghurt need to ferment to be legal?
24 hours.

Up to 29 hours is fine, but after 30 hours, it starts to kill the good
bacteria. After 36 hours, it will not last as long in the refrigerator.

6. Is there a maximum amount of yoghurt I can eat in one day?
See The Limits on the amount of yoghurt

7. What happens if I use the yoghurt in cooking?
You will lose the probiotic benefit of the bacteria, because the heat from
cooking will kill them.

8. What happens if I freeze the yoghurt?
You lose some, but not all of the probiotic benefit of the bacteria,
because some of them will be killed in the freezing process.

9. What happens if I dehydrate the yoghurt?
You lose the probiotic benefit of the bacteria in it, and it would count
toward your daily consumption.

10. How long is yoghurt good for after you've fermented it?
It can last up to three weeks in the fridge, but the bacteria will remain
active in it for two weeks at most.
