CHOOZIT MA 11/ 14/ 19
Description: Freeze-dried starter culture for cheese making.
MA culture is a basic mesophilic lactic acid culture. It is commonly used for making cheddar, colby, Monterey jack and cottage cheese. This blend does not contain gas-producing bacteria (unlike MM series) which will not result in eye development or slight to minimal pressure build up in sealed containers.
Depending on stock levels, substitutions may be made depending on availability of the following MA series: MA 11, MA 14 or MA 19. They are interchangeable and are suitable for rotation.
Storage: 18 months from date of production at temperatures below 4°C (39°F).
