DuPont Nutrition & Health releases two cheese cultures for use in soft-ripened cheese making.
These new DuPont Danisco CHOOZIT brand cheese cultures, CHOOZIT ST 20 and CHOOZIT PC FAST, are designed to optimize production and consistently produce high-quality soft-ripened cheese.
“Consumers prefer soft-ripened cheese with a nice and stable white surface and soft texture,” says Annie Mornet, global product leader, cheese cultures.
“While cheese manufacturers want to satisfy these consumer desires throughout a cheese’s shelf life, they also want to maintain a high throughput level. These objectives don’t always align.”
Controlling acidification and rind formation times are essential in making consistent, high-quality, soft-ripened cheese. CHOOZIT PC FAST cultures offer more rapid development of stable white rind, enabling packaging to begin earlier.
Meanwhile, CHOOZIT ST 20 cultures offer direct vat inoculation in the milk with an early and controlled acidification to achieve desired cheese texture.
