Cheese Production Process
Danish cheeses are world famous. Denmark enjoys high temperature during spring and summer and due to its rainfall distribution around the year, thus supporting the cattle industry. Over 100 years Danish cheese production has flourished due to modernization and industrialization. The various types of Danish cheese which are now world famous include Feta cheese, Cheddar cheese, Scottsdale cheese, Danbo, Blue Castello and many more. Each of the cheese is unique in its own way.
Selection of milk is based upon the type of cheese to be made. Once the same is done, an appropriate starter culture is selected and added. Mesophilic starter cultures are used for preparing Cheddar and Gouda, similarly each starter culture has unique properties.
Though each variety of cheese available is unique in its own way, the basic process of making cheese remains same. It involves the basic scientific principle of curdling and coagulating milk. In layman’s terms it is called forming a curd. In coagulating milk with small amount of curd, microscopic organisms commonly known as bacteria will form lactic acid. A coagulating enzyme called rennet will help speed up the separation of the solid and liquid curd. The solid curd finally turns into cheese. You can add starting culture. Addition of the starter culture, though not important process in cheese making will acidify the milk and will give different variety of cheeses, its unique and distinctive taste and flavour.
Once the solid curd and whey (liquid) are separated, cheese is wrapped in a cloth and allowed to be ripened. In this ripening process, bacteria will grow in the cheese, and chemical reactions will take place which will result in formation of the final product. The duration of the ripening process varies from cheese to cheese. The minimum ripening period starts from 2 weeks to and maximum it is seven years for special kind of cheese. Once the cheese is ripened, it is ready to use and you can now enjoy your favourite cheese.
