Debuting at the International Cheese Awards 2019 in Nantwich, UK, at the end of July, DSM said the new series allows cheesemakers to increase production efficiency, while also delivering cheese of consistent quality, taste and texture, even during the long production runs demanded by today’s large, cost-driven cheese diaries.
Young cheddar and barrel cheese accounts for the majority of cheddar cheese types produced worldwide today. These cheeses are widely used in the food processing and services industries for food products including ready meals, pizza and burgers.
Tested by selected commercial cheesemakers, the DelvoCheese CH-120 range consists of six rotations and selected culture strains to resist phages. This new range offers durable phage protection and a consistent performance, DSM said. It also creates young cheddar and barrel cheese with the neutral flavor and firm, texture of cheddar cheese the market expects.
Evandro Oliveira de Souza, business lead for cheese at DSM, said, “We designed the new Delvo Cheese CH-120 cultures with cheese producers’ needs in mind.
“We know that reliability, consistency and efficiency are essential to helping them produce high-quality, great-tasting cheddar cheeses faster and more effectively, while also prioritizing robust protection against phages. We are proud to offer innovative solutions that help our customers create unique cheese products that meet the needs of an increasingly demanding market.”
