Fruityness in cheese (without adding fruit)
« on: June 24, 2017, 08:36:18 PM »
I have tasted cheeses, as well as seen others describe the flavor of some cheeses, that taste "fruity". What contributes to this unique characteristic?
I am a cheese loving college student headed towards a PhD in Neuroscience working with what I have to produce some yummy morsels. Advice is always welcome!

The short answer is that esters formed during the aging process are what can give a fruity flavor to cheese. That being said, cheese aging is extremely complex and there are many factors involved.
