Microbial coagulant (endopeptidase) preparation

Fromase®, the purest microbial coagulants suitable for all cheese

Today’s cheese manufacturers face multiple challenges with continually increasing quality requirements, pressure to optimize whey value, taste, texture and sliceability, and a need to produce in an efficient and sustainable way. In addition, consumers are increasingly looking for vegetarian, convenient and great-tasting products, adding to the challenges cheese manufacturers must surmount. 

Using the right vegetarian rennet allows manufacturers to meet all these needs, addressing consumer demands and at the same time delivering a well-controlled proteolysis that meets the highest industrial standards in efficacy, taste and texture.
