About Creme Fraiche:

Make rich and delicious crème fraîche with this easy-to-use, direct-set starter culture. True crème fraîche is milder in flavor and contains more fat than sour cream, which gives it a thicker, richer texture.

Why Culture your own Creme Fraiche?

  • Optimal Health via Probiotic Strains: Homemade cultured creme fraiche will contain more probiotic strains than conventionally-made creme fraiche. Are you searching for health? A healthy gut belongs to a healthy person . . . so get that gut healthy!

  • Premium Product: By choosing your own ingredients, you can make a product that not only is not available on the shelf, but is higher quality ingredients, e.g. ( raw, organic, whole milk, goat or cow milk, etc). You can make creme fraiche that is many notches above what can be purchased!

  • Save $$$: Making your own creme fraiche costs significantly less than commercially-made creme fraiche and you have complete control over the ingredients you use. You save lots of $$$!
