Difference between yogurt starter and probiotic capsul?

What is the difference between yogurt starter and probiotic?

A friend of my wonder if she can use a regular probiotic capsule to make yogurt of since she can't get any yogurt without dairy to use as a starter (or dairy free yogurt starter)

If it is non dairy, what is she going to use to make the yogurt? I don't think this is possible, the bacteria need a place to grow and thrive and I don't know what other host would be appropriate.

Sorry kamp.

Then she will need to do a loooot of paper work to prove that this is not medication.. The gouverment is totally hopeless here in norway. They didn't even allow me to get a small dose of grape fruit seed extract in.
I have another friend that try do order a dairy starter. But they had opened the bottle so all the bacteries died before she recived it :(

I'm on SCD diet and make a very good almond yogurt. Look at The Scientific Diet for GI Problems, Autism and Other Conditions there you can find a recipe :)
