Boosting taste, texture and efficiency in cheddar

So, what’s your cheddar challenge?

If you’re a cheddar producer striving to create a product with better taste and texture – and produced with greater efficiency – you’re in the right place. Here at DSM, we offer a complete, tailor-made solution for cheddar cheese production that help create a product that delights people while delivering profitability. Enjoy it all.

Whether you’re looking to differentiate on premium taste on order to meet evolving consumer needs; or step-up your process and product optimization, we’ll help you achieve it - through our family of cultures, coagulants, enzymes, bulk starters and media, supported by deep industry expertise that’s customized to your unique needs.

For example, you can produce consistently high-quality and phage-robust cheddar with a clean and full taste – and all at consistent acidification speed – with the Delvo®Cheese CH range - including our new CH-250 culture that delivers premium balanced classical cheddar flavor (especially in North America). But why stop there? We’ll help you further boost flavor development with our Maxiren® XDS coagulant, which also eliminates off-flavors (as well having excellent texture and superior slicing performance). And you can then even give your cheese a tailored signature flavor with the adjunct cultures in our DSM Flavor Wheel™.
