MD 88 Mesophilic starter culture can be used in combination with other mesophilic cultures to enhance the flavor in a variety of fresh and soft ripened cheese including Brie/Camembert, Chevre and Blue.

This culture is not typically used by itself, because it will not produce enough acid during the cheese making process. Instead, it is used to enhance the cheese by providing a buttery flavor and small eyes in cheese such Edam or Havarti.
