Lactic Acid Coagulated Board
« on: February 08, 2009, 03:59:45 PM »
This Board is for Members who are interested in or interested in making primarily Lactic Acid Coagulated cheeses.

These are cheeses that primarily use starter culture for a long time period to reduce the pH and create a light curd set. Primarily as a smaller amount (than in rennet coagulated cheeses) of another coagulant can be added such as rennet although normally at a lower temperature than rennet requires to form a curd.

More information can be found here. Also, general procedures and control points can be found in Culture Manufacturer CHR Hansen's Soft Cheese Brochure posted in the Library Board.

  • Europe: Chevre, Cottage/Farmer's/Pot, Cream Cheese, Sour Cream.
