Description

MA 4002 Mesophilic and Thermphilc starter culture is commonly referred to as a 'Farmstead culture.' This is a great choice for any cheese made with MA 11 because the added thermophilis will aid in ripening the cheese.

This culture is predominantly a blend of standard mesophilic lactic acid cultures similar to MA 11, which develops the primary acidity. This culture also contains S. thermophilis which serves as a ripening culture later in the cheese making process. The mesophilic cultures produce acidity during the first part of the process, after the cheese is salted and aging, the thermophilic cultures begin to work in a ripening capacity to break down the complex proteins into simpler components.
