Home of the good bacteria

Welcome to the home of good bacteria.

Kefir and yogurt are among the the healthiest food on earth. With the help of the good guys, the live bacteria aka live active culture, anyone can take a small step at attaining good health. However, this is only so when the product you choose says "live bacteria, or active culture, or live culture". Our products have live culture thus you get the full benefits from yogurt. Not only that, we use natural ingredients for most of our products - brown sugar, fresh fruit, farm fresh milk, natural sugar replacement(stevia), and organic eggs to name a few.

Just because it is healthy does not mean it is boring. At Yoggie's, we make sure that you get to love being healthy and say "it's so yummy!" all the way home.

But don't just take our word for it, take a look at some of our products:

Pictures from 3rd Soft Cheese Workshop

Sorry, this is long overdue.  Here are the pics from last week's workshop.    Next workshop is on Sept. 22. check out our announcement at www.yogurtstation.blogspot.com.

The workshop started off with making cheese per se.  We needed to do this because we wanted to let our attendees bring home the cheeses they had made.

2nd Soft Cheese Workshop

I had a wonderful time at the 2nd Soft Cheese Workshop here at Pasig.  There were only 5 students but their attentiveness and eagerness to learn were so evident that any teacher would have enjoyed sharing what she learned.  I did and I've just been reassured that we're doing something good.  Thanks guys.  I hope to see you again.

Hopefully, our next cheese workshop will be in August.  Do email me at yoggiestation@gmail.com for inquiries and reservations.

New products - Kimchi and Vinegars from Kefir

Kefir Kimchi
You've got to try our new products - kefir vinegar and kefir kimchi.  

Still packed with the same powerful microorganisms found in our water kefir or tibicos, our kimchi is our healthier alternative to the Korean version.  Imagine to goodness of cayenne, ginger, garlic, malunggay and kefir.  Now that's a powerhouse.  As if those are not enough, we also  have introduced muscovado, and blackstrap molasses in our fermentation process. Vegetables are organically grown at some traditional farms in the Northern Luzon.   We are excited to offer this as we not only give customers another healthy dish but we are also able to help the farmers who actually do the hard work.

Kefir kimchi is sold in 250-gram and 1 kg microwaveable containers.  Soon we will try to bottle them.

The kefir vinegar is a probiotic vinegar that may be used for a lot of things such as for cooking,  facial toner, hair rinse, deodorant, vaginal wash, foot soak, clothes deodorizer, vegetable wash, etc. etc. etc. I can go on and on and on.  That's on top of its already potent health benefits.  The vinegar come in  500 ml and 1 liter non-toxic bottles.  Check out our products at http://yogurtstation.blogspot.com/2011/11/yoggies-kefir-products.html.

Recipes with Water Kefir

There are a number of things you can do with your water kefir drink.  Of course, we make flavored drinks with them so we don't get tired of the taste.  The addition of ginger, or fruit can make for an interesting yet refreshing treat.

Salad Dressing
Combine kefir with honey or olive oil or both and add some salt and pepper.  This becomes a wonderfully healthy vinaigrette.  Add this to your salad greens or even fruit.

Vinegar Substitute
Although I don't personally recommend this because heat destroys the organism, you can actually use it to replace vinegar.  However, if using as a dip, then the kefir will be as potent as the drink.

Body Care
It is still worth mentioning, even when I had mentioned before,  that kefir can be used as a leave-on facial wash, deodorant, hair rinse, and feminine wash.

Isn't kefir great?

Budwig Diet and Yoggie's - Aiming to Help

I've just recently discovered the Budwig Diet which claims to help people with cancer even in the worst stage.  They seem to have about 90% success rate in their treatment while the 10 percent is attributed mainly to those that do not strictly adhere to the program.  This diet was made and prepared by a German Biochemist, Physicist Dr. Joanna Budwig.  Dr. Budwig was the top European Cancer Research Scientist who has earned a Nobel Prize for her work.

The diet combines flaxseed oil with either quark or cottage cheese.  According to the research, the combination of the cheese and the oil creates a chemical reaction that actually stops cancer cells from multiplying.  If you're interested, here's something to read.

We  know how hard it is to follow the budwig as there is hardly any fresh cottage cheese around.  Certainly not at the supermarkets.  Here at Yoggie's, you'll find the freshest cottage cheese - we deliver it to you within 24 hours of preparation.  We don't just want it that way, we insist on it.

We have cottage cheese and quark made from plain milk and from kefir too.  The kefir makes those type of cheese healthier.  One of our customers who does the Budwig Diet attests that she felt better.

My First Mozzarella

We had a great time during the cheesemaking class last weekend (March 24 to 25, 2012).  There were only 5 of us and we had Dr. Susan Mercado to ourselves.  Now, after learning how to make mozzarella, here's a pic of mine which I made into deep fried balls and had for dinner.  It was fresh and really good!  Did I mention that it stretches like it should?

Anyway, we were taught how to make white cheese and mozzarella on day 1.  On our second day, I got to teach about the soft cheeses which I am really very familiar with - feta, ricotta and yogurt and breezed through cream cheese.  We opted to do the mozzarella again because it did require some practice.  Except for some salt preferences of those who tasted our "creations", the comments we got were very good.

There'll hopefully be another Soft Cheese Workshop in April.  Then in May, we hope to come up with the 2nd part of the Artisan Cheese Workshop - specialty cheeses such as brie, blue cheese, and cheddar plus edam so we can prepare for the christmas season.  Yup, for the yuletide as it takes 6 months to make an edam cheese.

For those interested to attend, please let me know.  We are limiting the slots to a very small number as we do want everyone to learn and enjoy.

Yoggie's at the Cheesemaking Workshop at Center for Asian Culinary Studies

It had been a busy week last week.   Hah!  Glad that's out. hahahaha

Anyways, we were at the Center for Asian Culinary Studies at P. Guevarra and boy did we have a blast!  Chef Ellen who conducted the  Cheesemaking Workshop was so animated in her lecture that everyone and I mean everyone enjoyed the time there.  We provided the supplies - milk, rennet, starter. Soon we will be conducting our own workshop as I have dreamed of it several years back - hopefully. 

Here are some pictures for you to see:

 The collection of cheeses made and garnished by the attendees.

 This one's the nuefchatel. 

They were garnishing this cheese.  I think Chef Ellen was putting some cherry tomatoes on top of mozzarella cheese.

 Future iron chefs attended. Ok guys?

Oh, and did I mention, I took the pictures myself?  It was a great opportunity for me. Thanks Chef Ellen.  :)
