Origins of Heirloom Buttermilk Culture

Postby sergiovl3283 on Fri Feb 03, 2017 6:41 pm

Does anyone have any idea about the origins of heirloom Buttermilk culture sold by a number of sellers of dairy cultures (such as Cultures for Health and Organic Cultures). Is this culture a truly traditional culture perpetuated through backslopping by traditional peoples or was it created in a laboratory setting (is it even possible to create a heirloom culture in a laboratory setting)? If it is not possible to create a heirloom culture and therefore it has to be a traditional culture then what is it's origin? Where does it come from? Which traditional peoples fermented it? I looked everywhere for information on this topic and came up empty-handed. Does anyone have any answers for this mystery?
