Central And South America First To Enjoy New Freeze Dried Cheese Cultures

December 30, 2010: 11:46 AM EST

Chr. Hansen has developed new freeze-dried RSF cultures for the cheese industry using Direct Vat Set® technology. The new cultures, to be introduced first in Brazil before being rolled out to other markets in South and Central America, will provide consumers with the sweet and nutty flavour, favored particularly in the Brazilian market, and help simplify logistics of producers through easier handling and storage. Made from a strain of Lactobacillus helveticus, Chr. Hansen says utilizing the technology with the FD-RSF cultures provides producers with better performance, taste, product safety, and quality. Mainly considered for Continental cheeses, Prato in particular, the company says applying the cultures to other cheeses is also an option. Brazil currently produces 43% of the 313,000 tons of Continental cheese produced annually in the region.
