Description

Fromagina starter culture was developed by Bob & Ricki Carroll. It is a cross between Fromage Blanc and Mascarpone. Fromagina is excellent in cooking or served by itself as a delightfully, creamy spread. This is an easy cheese to start with, we highly recommend it for both beginners and advanced cheesemakers alike.

Fromagina Genius!

I really love this culture and the cheese that it creates. I have mini lamanchas and mini alpines and I can use about 1 packet per 2gallons of raw goats milk. I like that I don't have to use rennet or calcium chloride. It makes the perfect spreadable cheese that is great to add things to; I make a pumpkin spice version with honey, an herbs de provance and salt, and a blueberry swirl jam version all very delicious. I even made a pumpkin cheesecake entirely with this cheese and it was the best!

Very Nice Cheese

Fromagina is a great cheese to use with my raw goats milk. It’s very convenient as it requires no rennet and sets up a little softer than chèvre. This makes it perfect to use as ricotta or cream cheese I like to add herbs de provance to it for a herby spread. It’s very adaptable. I’ll be buying more of this culture for sure.

Super creamy!

The culture works great and the results taste great! I make dips (savory and sweet) and mix in some jam for a breakfast treat. I use a 14x14inch almond nut bag when draining it—makes for easy cleanup!
