mozz yield
« on: November 24, 2014, 04:24:54 AM »
hi guys
  I have been working on mozzeralla cheese as for pizza cheese since about one year,experimenting many kinds of methods or recipes(using starter culture)
with regard to low moisture of Mozzeralla cheese needed for pizza,the yield of this cheese per 1 kilo of raw cow milk with 3% fat is about 100 gr ,whereas from this amount of milk, I make about 124 gr fresh mozzeralla.
As i am going to sell my homemade mozzarella cheese (good for pizza),for sure this yield would be low ,so would u let me know the best and exact yield of best mozzarella cheese for pizza per 1 kilo cow milk of 3%fat.

thanks a lot

Hi sunland and welcome.  I had to look up where Esfahan is.  Apparently pizza is popular in Iran?   Sorry I can't answer your mozz question as when I make it ANY yield is welcome :)/

hi John , thank you for your reply , yes you are right , in Iran pizza is the most popular fast food.
In pizza we use ham , sausage , vegetable such as mushroom and paprika ... and we need low moisture cheese .
we need sort of cheese  below 50% moisture with maximum yield. :-\
Can you help me what the most yield we can get from 1 kilo cow milk of 3% fat is ? ???

I really can't answer your question from my own experience as I'm 0/8 as far as making mozzarella goes. Maybe someday.  :-\

Stinky, I feel your pain :(.  I did have a good result on my no. 5 (or was it 6?) so there is a light at the end of the tunnel :).
