Cheese Starter Culture for Making Parmesan & Mozzarella

Regular price $11.90

Unit price per 

This thermophilic cheese starter culture includes a blend of lactic bacteria specially selected for the production of high-heat hard cheeses such as Parmesan, Grana Padano, Pecorino, Asiago, and is also useful for acidifying and adding flavour to mozzarella and pasta filata type cheeses.

It is a low gas-producing cheese culture which creates a dense, consistent texture in the finished cheese and a tangy flavour profile that sharpens with age. 

The Culture Cupboard® pack of 5 starter culture sachets for Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese can also be used for any high-temperature hard cheese requiring a dense, consistent paste and more pronounced flavour than single strain thermophilic culture. 

Each pack culture 10 litres (10 quarts) of milk which yields a finished cheese of approximately 0.8 - 1 kilogram - a good size for the home cheesemaker.

Excellent results

I use this culture to make Parmesan and other cheeses that need a thermophilic culture. Always excellent results. My recipe for Parmesan takes 4L of low fat milk and 2L of full cream farm milk. I use one culture packet and get a 600g cheese. Delivery to the North island took less than 24 hours from when I placed the order.

So easy to buy and arrived snappily

Haven't made the cheese yet, but I have found it hard to buy thermophillic starter so looking forward to being able to move beyond my pasta filata failures.
Thanks so much for the opportunity to improve my cheese making.
