DSM has launched Delvo Cheese CT-Light to enhance the texture and taste of low-fat continental cheese.

The company says the cultures result in the impression of a full-fat cheese but with fewer calories.

Continental cheeses, such as Manchego, Gouda and Edam, each have a distinct flavor profile and are nutrient-dense.

While they provide protein, calcium, and vitamins A and B12, they are often high in fat.

Product can be used with low-fat milk

DSM says that efforts to reduce fat content have been challenging, with consumers unwilling to accept the resulting changes to taste and texture.

Delvo Cheese CT-Light allows cheesemakers to create these continental cheeses using low-fat milk.

During the cheese making process, the culture replaces fat with water, which the company says results in no negative impact on physical or sensory properties.

With DelvoCheese  CT-Light, fat can be reduced by 30% or more, alongside a significant cut in calories, without additives or stabilizers.
