The company said the culture provides more efficient production and reduced ripening time for mature Emmental-type cheeses.
According to DSM, Swiss cheese continues to grow in popularity worldwide, because of the increasing demand for flavorsome, conveniently-packaged processed cheese, with characteristics such as longer shelf life and improved sliceability.
Meeting market needs
However, it adds, traditional production processes have struggled to meet the growth in demand for products that can provide these attributes in an affordable, efficient way.
DelvoCheese SW-250 adds to DSM’s portfolio of Swiss cheese cultures, which also includes a propioni bacteria offering, enzymes, and coagulants to enable successful Swiss cheese production, reduced ripening time and increased productivity and yield to improve affordability.
DSM said it offers consistent and robust acidification at high temperatures with a low dosage, helping cheese manufacturers meet changing market needs.
