Fromage Blanc Starter Culture
Fromage blanc starter culture is one of the most sensational finds we have made in all our years of cheesemaking. This wonderful cheese is easy to make and tastes amazing.
Fromage Blanc is similar to cream cheese with a delightfully rich flavor, but a fraction of the calories and cholesterol. It can be used in cooking or simply spread on your morning toast. It can also be made to have the texture of sour cream or a thick drained yogurt. Use either whole or skim milk to make it as lean or rich as you like.
This culture can be used to make a traditional German Quark

Favorite Soft Cheese
This starter is amazing. Fromage Blanc is my favorite go to cheese for entertaining, holiday appetizer, lunch snack item for the kids. We only use raw goat milk, and it sets up perfect and creamy every time. Fromage blanc is versatile and can be used instead of cream cheese, for stuffed french toast, in lasagna with homemade ricotta. I always make at least one pot of this weekly while our does are milking so it's always on hand for my family to snack on with crackers, or to fix into lunches. I love this culture and it works perfect every time.

Same great fromage blanc culture but the new, smaller packet doesn't open or sprinkle as neatly.
Extreme Health Food
I contacted New England Cheese Making with questions about making a cheese called, "Quark" in Germany. The cheese is necessary to make a cancer and heart disease cure developed by Dr. Johanna Budwig. Fromage Blanc was one of two recommendations I received. After working with both I have chosen the Fromage Blanc culture which fortunately is easy to work with, delicious and inexpensive.
This is excellent!
I just wanted to let you know I placed my second order from NECS. I originally ordered a whole bunch of Direct Starter Cultures approx. 2 yrs ago. I have made quite a bit of cheese since then, mostly soft-Fromage Blanc, Fromagina, Sour, Buttermilk. All were EXCELLENT! I just reordered another batch. I made several blackberry-merlot cheesecakes for my restaurant, Seven Hills Deli Cafe, using the fromage blanc I made, and I have NEVER had such an outpouring of, That was the best I have ever eaten, comments! Basically, I just wanted to say thanks for excellent products, service and support. Thanks so much!
