Royal DSM, a global science-based company active in nutrition, health and sustainable Living, has launched its new DelvoCheese CP-500 cultures for boosting the yield and resource efficiency of mozzarella cheese production.

Capable of achieving a higher moisture content in mozzarella, the range increases yield by up to 1.3%, compared to the most commonly used Direct Vat Set (DVS) culture in the US.

The company said the cultures also enable cheesemakers to deliver products with superior taste and texture that consumers will enjoy and are ideal for creating mozzarella cheese for pizza, offering a mild buttery flavor, stretch and melt behavior and reduced browning.

The cheese industry today has experienced a sharp rise in demand for mozzarella cheese in a range of product formats, including shreds, slices and cubes.

Commercial testing has shown that the DelvoCheese CP-500 range enables cheesemakers to overcome these challenges by increasing moisture content, offering the fast acidification expected by producers and a consistent performance in terms of texture — maximizing yield and improving the consumer pizza eating experience.

When combined with DSM’s Maxiren XDS fermented chymosin coagulants, the range enhances yield further, allowing manufacturers to optimize raw material efficiency and achieve high whey quality.

“It can be a complex challenge for cheesemakers to meet rising consumer demand for high-quality mozzarella cheese products, while continuing to be economically and operationally efficient,”​ said Evandro Oliveira de Souza, business lead for cheese at DSM.

“We’re committed to offering unique, stand-out products that not only look and taste good, but are also better for both consumers and customers. For that reason, DSM is delighted to introduce this new extension of our portfolio of culture solutions, which will help our customers set a new standard for yield in cheese production and deliver market-leading end products.”

Alongside the DelvoCheese CP-500 cultures, DSM’s expanding portfolio of solutions for mozzarella cheese includes DelvoCheese CP-120 cultures, and Fromase XLG and Maxiren XDS coagulants.

DSM’s capabilities and portfolio in support of the cheese and dairy industry have recently been further strengthened by the acquisition of specialty dairy ingredients company CSK.
