What is Viilli?
Organic Viili is a delicious, natural, fermented milk product that originates from Finland. The flavour is mild, not tart, and the texture is creamy and honey-like. It is so simple to make with our fresh Heirloom Viili starter. No special equipment is needed.
Your fresh Viili starter may look quite thin from its time in transit, but the cultures are active and after a few batches your Viili will be thick and creamy smooth. Our Viili culture is a mixture of micro-organisms (bacteria, yeast and mould) living in a dynamic balance to offer you years of economic culturing. Its ropey texture is an indication of a healthy culture. Since your fresh viili is a live active culture, it needs to be nourished as soon as possible according to the instructions provided here.
- IMPORTANT: We only ship Viilli on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday so that they do not remain in transit via Australia Post over the weekend
