We buy the 500g tubs of Jalna yoghurt and liquid gathers at the top of the yoghurt.

I tip the liguid out but my DH mixes it in the yoghurt and make the yoghurt less thick.

What are you meant to do with the liquid?

what do you do with it??

I know, random question for a Sunday...

The liquid is part of it.   Jalna is closer to a joghurt made at home in the old ways which if I remember rightly had the liquid.

Obviously the consumer can decide what they want to do.  I don't tip it off or mix it in deliberately. Just spoon it all together.


ETA just like junket if anyone still has that nowadays.

I tip it out too, it doesn't look appetizing.

Isn't it whey? I don't mix it, but I do pour it out onto DS's cereal.

eta: a quick google search says that it has a lot of protein in it and is beneficial. So I wouldn't waste it.

Not 100% sure but I think the liquid is the whey separating. It is good for you original.gif

I used to tip it out, but my husband explained that it is probably the whey component. the whey separates so you need to mix it back in.

Its the whey I believe.  It has a lot of protein in  it and is really good for you.  I mix it or even tip the whey in to the bowl etc first.  
Jalna is made the traditional way and it is just the way it sets.

I've heard it's really good for too. I don't purposefully mix it in, but it all gets eaten as we scoop.

Mixer here!

I make my own yoghurt and ricotta so am not afraid of whey!  
However if I was sat on a tuffet and spider came and sat down beside me...... different story!

Ok I am a tipper but after reading this thread I will from henceforth be a mixer. biggrin.gif

Lol CM.

Mum went through a hippy phase in the 70's and 80's and she made her own cottage cheese once. It was weird seeing it hanging in the shower dripping.
The yoghurt she made was good but a bit sour for my liking though.

I normally tip it out but now I think I will mix it in as I never realised that I was literally tipping out the goodness down the sink!!

It is also mentioned on the side of the packet.

What is the liquid that sometimes appears on the top of Jalna Yoghurt?

This liquid – or whey – is perfectly normal and is an indication that no stabilisers or thickeners like gelatine have been added to Jalna Yoghurts. Whey is part of the natural process of set yoghurts, which expel moisture – it is full of protein and you can either consume it or pour it off.

Neither. I just spoon it out with the yogurt. My home made yogurt seperates too.

#21 watching the clock

Posted 24 February 2013 - 12:40 PM

it consists mainly of water, whey also contains potassium and calcium stirring in the whey not only adds nutrition to your yogurt, but it'll offer a creamier consistency

#22 LovingTheBeach

I've always mixed it in to

#23 Funwith3

Posted 24 February 2013 - 01:31 PM

No, don't tip it out. It's whey and its very nutritious.

I was coming in to post something about Little Miss Muffet too laughing2.gif

Do NOT tip it out. It's full if incredibly beneficial components of the yoghurt and needs to be mixed back through it, otherwise you're tipping your money down the drain! As another poster noted, it makes your yoghurt creamier also.
