Sacco Lyofast SB 108 - 10D - B. Linens

Sorry, this product is temporarily out of stock.


Lyofast SB 108 consists of a specifically selected salt-tolerant strain of Brevibacterium linens to ensure a uniform and controlled surface treatment in the production of pressed and soft cheese with an orange appearance. Lyofast SB 108 is not so sensitive to lower pH than other B. linens strains and the growth results in very fast development of an orange pigment that will cover the cheese. Thereby Lyofast SB 108 contributes to the ripening process as well as the characteristic colouring of the cheese. 

Product of Italy.
