If you have a store or a website then I'm sure they will sell it to you. Also just because they don't reply doesn't mean you stop trying. If you are really serious about a business you would try and try and try to succeed. I bet Cielo has a ton of people who just want to buy their products for home use and obviously they do not want to sell to the public.
Why should I beg them to buy their product? I'm a strong believer in not purchasing from companies that show ambivalence towards current or potential customers. Oh, and I do have a website, by the way. I sell products other than frozen yogurt, I am just planning on expanding my product line and opening a physical location. I'm actually developing my own frozen yogurt mix using fresh yogurt (yep, make that myself too - it's easier than you'd think and really inexpensive) and other natural ingredients. So far, it's not bad. Needs a little refinement, but when I get it down, I'm sure it'll be much cheaper and fresher than any powdered mix I could purchase through a distributor.

Machines....There is also Electro Freeze. I think one thing you have to consider is how good the after service is.(It does seem Taylor is best).

But I spoke to Joe "the owner" ;-) at http://www.efdist.com/ for the NY metro area and he is very helpful and eager to serve. EF is cheaper than Taylor. 1-800-548-8800 Tell him Mike send you.

Is cielousa the best powder mix? And do you have to add yogurt to it, or just milk or water? Thanks.

I am opening a frozen yogurt store in Arizona and want to know if anyone can refer a great suplier of the powdered mix. If there is anyone who has a list of the many suppliers out there I would really appreciate it.

Just thought I would update everyone on our progress. We opened our store a few weeks ago, and we've been using the Carbawhey Zero in our shops because we have A LOT of health conscious customers. They all want the lowest calorie stuff, and when I tell them Carbawhey is 5 calories an ounce, and half a carb per ounce they nearly do back flips; not to mention it has whey protein concentrate in it and not some cheap filler. The lactose intolerants love it, and the body building and fitness types love it too. Anyway, we're using 4 duel head taylor pump machines and the product comes out really really creamy. We've had a lot of customers come into our shop rather than our competitors. Customers have mentioned that they're tired of all the yogurt shops with the same products (YoCreme), cause they're really high in calories, and are heavy on the high fructose corn syrup (fat injection system for the customers). Stay away from the YoCreme. But it's great to see that they notice high quality products like Carbawhey when they see and taste it. Anyway, just thought I'd let everyone know that we're open, doing really well, and love it.

I use their mix for my own store and I believe there's is the best powder mix out there. FYI, I've tried Yoflavor, Yocream and some Italian stuff sold from a local distributor and by far, Cielo's tasted the best. Their mix use water and nonfat plain yogurt, which I think is the best way to make yogurt since you can tell your customers that you use real yogurt in your store without feeling guilty. I wouldn't be able to say the same if we were using powder and just milk. I recommend their mix. My customers like it a lot too.

I had the same problem with Cielo, think they don't want to waste their time unless you have an existing shop setup and machines in place.
I use Cielo for my store and have no problem reaching them. Did you try emailing them again? I know there are a ton of people trying to open up yogurt shops these days and I can only imagine how many inquiries they get per day.

Can someone tell me exactly how to mix the cielo mix in the machine and what it needs to be mixed with? Like for example, do you mix it in a bowl or pail first with the water and the non fat yougurt, or do you just add it all into the hopper in the machine ingredient by ingredient??
You can just use a bucket (I use a 5 gallon one) to add water, yogurt and Cielo Mix and just pour it in the machine. It's very easy to use their mix. I had no problem doing it myself without formal training. I think it's odd that some people actually charge for what they call 'trainings.'A marketing scheme, I suspect?

Does anyone know who the yogurt supplier is to Yogurt World (self serve) in San Diego?

If you do please email me [email protected]

I heard that in California, its illegal to use powdered yogurt that is mixed in the shop...that you have to buy the liquid yogurt if it has active cultures. Is that true?

thanks

Thks!

In California, you cant use powder mix if you plan on selling yogurt with live cultures...the state of CA made it very difficult for yogurt businesses by only allowing live yogurt cultures to be mixed at the factory. This means if you want to sell yogurt in CA you have to buy the liquid type and which has a certain shelf life before spoiling. Shops buy and mix powdered but it cant have live cultures and you cant legally call it yogurt or they will shut you down.

Hi Folks - there are a number of dry mixes available on the market.
Pre-Gel are a company to start with.

FYI, I tried pregel but it is difficult to get the right taste and texture with this alone. Any suggestions on how to use pregel to make it taste better? I can't imagine pregel alone making good tasting yogurt that is creamy.

Hopefully someone knows the answer to this. We tried to make our own mix to get some different flavors, using milk, creamer, sugar and fat free yogurt. we get the consistency to be about the same as using pwder mix. However, it consistently freezes in the chamber to solid.

The machine is fine when we use powder mix base, but when we try to make our own it freezes up. help!

Wow can I say RETARD. Of course it is going to freeze. I hope you had fun cleaning the machine out.
