The benefits of milk proteins in traditional cheese making
Boasting natural ingredients as well as maintaining consistent texture and flavor: how to satisfy consumers while controlling manufacturing process?
Milk proteins provide the solution to these demands.
- They provide all of the organoleptic functionalities in each type of cheese. From the moist curd of mozzarella to the stringiness of parmesan, milk proteins provide texture and flavor with an authentic, all-natural dairy taste. Thanks to their melting properties, proteins replace food emulsifiers.
→ Consumers will like the taste and natural qualities of your cheese!
- Manufacturing process is simplified. Adding proteins allows you to standardize the milk while maintaining a consistent quality of your cheese. With this ingredient, you avoid seasonal constraints. Whether the milk comes from grass-fed or forage-fed cows, in summer or winter, no longer complicates your methods.
→ You gain flexibility within your manufacturing process!
- Enriching milk with high value-added proteins reduces coagulation times, thus increasing your yields. In addition, you can expand your offerings as desired between low-fat cheese and protein-enriched cheese.
→ You increase and also diversify production!
