Specially-formulated freeze-dried culture blend for the manufacture of Feta cheese. Medium fast to fast acidifying culture with no gas production (citrate fermentation). Due to the addition of L. bulgaricus and L. helveticus, it results in a higher proteolytic activity which improves taste and produces a creamy texture. Works well with all milk types. This is a Direct-Set culture (see below).
(LL) Lactoccocus lactis subsp. Lactis
(LC) Lactoccocus lactis subsp. Cremoris
(ST) Streptococcus thermophilus
(LB) Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp bulgaricus
(LH) Lactobacillus helveticus
This product contains no GMO ingredients.
What is a Direct-Set culture? Direct-Set cultures are a one-time-use culture, they cannot be recultured (i.e. perpetuated beyond the single batch). Direct-Set cultures are often preferred by cheese makers as they require no maintenance or care. Simply keep the packet in the freezer and remove the portion for your recipe when it's time to make cheese. Most Direct-Set cultures contain multiple doses to inoculate multiple batches.
