Does it have to be cow's milk?
No, but it DOES need to be a mammals milk such as goat. However, it is best (but not essential) that organic, raw cows or goats milk is used as the lactose is needed for the Bravo fermentation process.
What if i am allergic to milk?
This is usually not the case. As our founder Naturopractic Dr Jeremy states most people are having an inflammatory response to what has been DONE to the very low quality (in minerals and fat) and usually dirty milk of modern, grain fed dairy. the pasteurization and homogenization completely change the fats and milk into a toxic product (not a natural product) and the body rejects this. Most people who believe they are allergic to milk do just fine on organic, raw, pasture fed cows, especially the breeds that have not been cultivated out of their original origins like the smaller Jersey cows.

ok, but i am allergic to lactose and cAsEins in any milk
This is usually not a problem with Bravo Yogurt as the bringing of the milk to the boil denatures the ceasins (proteins) into long strings of biologically beneficial amino-acids that can be digested and used to build health. The lactose is almost completely consumed by the Bravo micro-organisims as part of any fermentation process and hence why our ancestors generally "soured" milk into yogurts which have for a very long time been very beneficial for health and Bravo have effectively increased that. So, Bravo Yogurt should be no issue for those suspecting any ceasin or lactose intolerance. For more detailed answer click here for Ceasin & Lactose Intolerance.
Do i need a yogurt maker?
Absolutely not. In fact the higher temperatures of yogurt makers can prove to be detrimental to the fermentation process. Making Bravo is so simple and can be seen in the videos section How To Make Bravo Probiotic Yogurt.
does the bravo yogurt kit need refrigeration?
No, this unique formula does need to be kept refrigerated or shipped in ice. It is better to store in a dry, dark and cool area for longer storage once received and then once each batch of the 13 weekly batches are made they do need to be stored in a refrigerator for up to 1-2 weeks.
CAN IT BE SHIPPED WITHOUT REFRIGERATION?
Absolutely. The kit is very stable and can last up to a year without refrigeration in a dry, cool place. We ship World Wide and no refrigeration in shipping is required.
does the bravo yogurt need to be refrigerated?
Yes, once it is made it needs to be stored in the refrigerator ideally in a sealed glass or Tupperware container. Consume within for 1-2 weeks.
can the bravo be used to "seed" other probiotic yogurts?
Not really as colostrum is needed and lactose for the micro-organisims to feed and grow and also Bravo is a very specific algorithm (recipe) to get the correct ferment that brings such health benefits. See the 3rd video down of Professor Ruggerio here
