DuPont Nutrition & Health Launches New CHOOZIT Cheese Cultures
Reinforces leadership position in soft-ripened cheese
Drawing on its long history of innovation and expertise in the development of dairy cultures, DuPont Nutrition & Health today announced the introduction of 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 specifically 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,” explains 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® ST 20 and CHOOZIT® PC FAST cheese cultures address these challenges. CHOOZIT® PC FAST cultures offer more rapid development of stable white rind, enabling packaging to begin earlier. And CHOOZIT® ST 20 cultures offer direct vat inoculation in the milk with an early and controlled acidification to achieve desired cheese texture.
“Another benefit of CHOOZIT® ST 20 cultures is a significant reduction in the risk of phage issues,” said Mornet. “This helps our customers maintain consistent cheese production times and optimize yield, while maintaining a high standard of cheese quality and food safety.”
