DuPont Nutrition & Health aims to accelerate its growth within Eastern Europe with the launch of its range of mesophilic cultures for Tvarog.
Tvarog is a very popular curd based cheese that has a consistency directly in between cottage and fresh cheese. Meeting the consumer preference for the traditional taste and texture of Tvarog, in both artisanal and industrial modern processing conditions, is a challenge for manufacturers. It comes down to precise process timing, and a culture that can deliver.
The PROBAT(TM) 800 range, from the DuPont(TM) Danisco(R) ingredient portfolio, forms part of the traditionally robust PROBAT(TM) series, and has been developed to add consistency to the process of making Tvarog whilst improving functionality and giving the cheese a mild lactic acid flavour.
First time, and every time
When manufacturing Tvarog, early gas and flavour formation is crucial and can only be achieved with the right strain balance and specific acidification curve. The PROBAT(TM) 800 range has been extensively developed to create the perfect Tvarog the first time, and every time.
Its optimised gas formation gives the required consistency to the cheese, and its faster fermentation time gives a creamy, rounded taste and a mild, lactic acid flavour.
"Through tapping into this unique Eastern European market, we will be able to attract a broader customer base by solving the challenges specifically facing manufacturers of Tvarog," said Annie Mornet, global product manager.
