The Choozit MA series is a strong mesophilic acidifier that does not contain the diacetyl and gas-producing strains of the MM100 or the MA4000 products. It has a clean and authentic flavor that results in a closed knit texture. Strong proteolytic activity during aging helps with texturizing quality as well.
The MA series makes a great choice for traditional English Cheddar and Stilton types, chèvre and aged goat cheeses, Colby and Jack , Greek and Bulgarian style Feta, and many other cheeses.
A great base for making your own farmhouse starter, this culture can be mixed with thermophilic cultures such as TA 50 or TA 60 series, Thermo B or C, LH100, FLAV 54 or similar products, turning it instantly into a starter of anything from Reblochon and Brie to Valençay, Emmental, Pecorino or Fontina.
