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.

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!

Cheese & Crackers

This is a great soft cheese that can be eaten without the aging process I mixed in the French herbs and it's delicious. My wife really likes it too.

Smooth and creamy

This cheese is quite simple to make and tastes great. It's smooth and creamy with a mild flavor. We love to eat it with crackers. Additionally, I will add apple pie or pumpkin pie spice to taste. Sweeten with honey or sugar for a real treat on graham crackers or ginger snaps.
