DSM introduces Delvo®ADD portfolio of adjuncts for aged cheddar cheese
Cheddar cheese is one of the most popular cheese-types in North America and consumer taste preferences are migrating toward more premium and unique cheddar flavor profiles, creating many opportunities for innovation. Cheddar cheese manufacturers will differentiate their products by crafting sweet, buttery, savory, and mature flavor notes or a combination of these, and are looking for new ingredient options and solutions to develop balanced taste profiles in their cheddars, without off flavors.
“DSM is pleased to introduce the DelvoADD portfolio of adjuncts for cheddar cheese producers who want to differentiate on taste,” says Evandro Oliveira de Souza, Business Lead for Cheese at DSM Food Specialties. “This addition to our cheddar cheese range gives cheesemakers more flexibility to develop their desired taste profile, whether they want to enhance a savory or buttery note, or prefer to increase caramel-like sweet notes, or want to create a more mature cheddar flavor.”
The new portfolio includes seven adjunct cultures that, for example, create flavor complexity and memory of typical mature cheddars (DelvoADD 200-C) or create complex savory flavor with the typical umami notes (DelvoADD Savory). The range also includes solutions for reducing ripening time by up to 30% for a more efficient production (DelvoADD EZ-Age) or to create full-fat flavor in low-fat cheese (DelvoADD Reduce Fat), in line with the market trends.
DSM will showcase the new DelvoADD range at the International Cheese Technology Exposition, 17-19 April in Wisconsin, US. Visitors to the expo can also find out more about DSM’s full range of products known for outstanding performance and reliability in cheese segments around the globe. This includes Delvo®Cheese cultures, bulk starters and media, Maxiren® coagulants, Piccantase® and Capalase® lipases, Delvo®Cid biopreservation, and Delvo®Coat and Pack-Age® cheese ripening solutions.
