    Ik gebruik deze tempeh starter al enkele jaren en ben er heel tevreden mee. Een groot voordeel van deze starter is dat de tempeh mooi wit blijft, ook als je een keer vergeet om de tempeh op het juiste tijdstip uit de incubator te halen. Ik gebruik een dehydrator als incubator.

  2. Jouni Hiltunen

    I made some batches of lupin tempeh. In 25 C it was ready in 3 days and in 30 C in 2 days. The tempeh was very white and beautiful without any spores or smell of ammonia.

  3. Christophe Joel


    This starter makes perfect tempeh, firm texture and nice aroma. I have tried tempeh starters from other suppliers and this one is superior. I recommend this product!

  4. Marini N.

    The best tempeh starter. I’m a new beginner in tempeh making, this starter made my first experience to a success one ?. I’m so happy that I can make my own tempeh.

  5. Martin


    Arrived quickly, works even with a low dose, nothing to complain about.

  6. Crainz


    I regularly buy tempeh starter from TopCultures to make my tempeh. It works perfectly and the tempeh is delicious. I highly recommend it!

  7. Lau


    Tempeh always successful. I think this starter is of very good quality. I have been using it for a long time and I am very pleased with the quality. Thank you

  8. Nadja C.


    I’ve used the starter a few times now and I’m just amazed at how easy it is to prepare tempeh! And that taste…! 🙂 I would never have dared to try it without this tempeh starter, so it’s a fabulous option especially for beginners. Plus, the shipping was super fast every time. Thank you!

  9. Lenoury


    My tempeh is always successful with little product. I highly recommend this product!

  10. Paolo

    Just perfect. Perfect growing. Excellent tempeh. No bad experience in years.

  11. Marie Anna Chiandussi


    We always order our ferments here. Fast shipping, quality of the product. We recommend it!

  12. Basil

    I used a couple of other tempeh cultures with unreliable results.
    The tempeh starter of topcultures has not failed me a single time in over 30 applications. The tempeh was white, firm and delicious every single time. The price is also great for what you get. Support answered my questions quickly. Perfection!

  13. Aurore

    I have been using this starter for years and it is perfect! Since I understand that the starter keeps well frozen, I do not order more than 75g. Thanks for making the tempeh possible in Europe!

  14. De Bre

    Very good, my second order already. Super fast delivery to Germany, thank you, so on

  15. Linde

    Have been using this starter for over 5 years, with many different types of beans, and it has always produced delicious tempeh! 🙂

  16. Alexis

    I’m new in the home making tempeh. I’ve already done it around 5 times and this starter works very well. I’ve never had any issue with it. My tempeh is beautiful and tasty, thank you for your quality !

  17. Stewart Kerrigan

    I’ve always used this to make chickpea tempeh, and it has not failed me yet. And it’ s been easier and faster to get this than ordering from a US company.

  18. Mike Scherrer

    In 2013 we ordered our first tempeh starter and since then we are regular customers. We were always happy with the fast delivery and the excellent quality of the tempeh. Hope you’ll keep on making tempeh starter for a long time!

  19. Martin

    This has worked the magic for us. We have been passionately making tempeh at home in the oven with a heat lamp and thermostat AND, most importantly, the right Tempeh Starter from Top Cultures. We decided to give these people a try because they looked the most professional, and when it comes to cultures, we do not want to experiment ‘too’ much. Luckily, they ship to the US as well. We very much recommend their Tempeh Starter. Try it yourself!

  20. Azahara

    Superfast shipping, very happy with the treatment, the price and the product (my tempeh is always perfect) !!!
    They are my favorite tempeh starter providers !!!
    Thanks and regards!

  21. Chiara

    great product! I make tempeh with soy beans, chickpeas and other beans and it’s always perfect.

  22. Helena B

    Good quality starter and fast delivery!

  23. Tobias

    100 % satisfied. By now, I always order two 75g packs at once, and store the starter in the fridge, and it still works perfectly after 2 years (although I am fairly positive that it would also last and still work if kept outside of a fridge). Easy and convenient ordering process, fast shipping. Definitely a customer for years and years to come.

  24. Gee

    This is a reliable and dependable product. Works well. Highly recommended.

  25. Mai

    Amazing product, works every time. I make chickpea tempeh and it’s delicious, works out as a fraction of the cost of storebought tempeh with very little work. Have purchased again, my first 25g bag lasted me about 4-5 months – you only need 3/4 tsp for 1 kg of soaked beans. Arrives to the UK really quickly too.

  26. Sophie Yang

    Great quality, stable and beautiful result. It works perfect with all kinds of beans, rice, and rice with turmeric. I also tried to produce fresh starter from this starter. The “babies” are quite energetic too, though without a high tech machine, and my own fresh starter can only stay for a much shorter time. Great experience with topcultures.com’s starter!

  27. Ken Fornataro

    We have been making tempeh since the 1970’s. This is the best tempeh starter (Rhizopus oryzae) we have ever used. We use it for all of our online classes and international meetings, see https://Cultures.Group, as well as in person demonstrations. This product makes great tempeh from rice, wheat, squash, mushrooms, and any bean we chose. It’s also an excellent addition as a culture to add to Aspergillus oryzae to make koji. Best doboroku and sake ever!

  28. Niklas Hase

    Good quality, good service!

  29. Gregg McKenzie

    There are sooo many variables that can go wrong making perfect tempeh – topcultures.com’s starter is NOT one of them!

  30. Charles Reinius

    Works very good with different peas and beans.

  31. Siri Guru Mat

    A fantastic product, tempeh turns out fantastic every time. Thanks for making this Erik and ensuring the good and healthy quality of the spores.

  32. Samuel Henriksson

    Good quality, fast delivery.

  33. maika

    I can recommend this product! Bought it a few times and my tempeh turns out perfect!
