CHOOZIT RA Series
- Product Format:
- Freeze-dried Powder
- Culture Type:
- Mesophilic/Thermophilic Blend
RA series is a rapid-acidifying mesophilic/thermophilic blend for semi-hard, semi-soft and fresh cheeses including cheddar, Colby, feta, chevre. Due to the thermophilic strain in this blend, it is a rapid acid producer sometimes preferred over the MA series for the production of Cheddar and American-style cheeses. This culture is a popular choice for fresh "squeaky" curd production due to its salt sensitivity. Bacteriophage rotation available: RA 21, 22, 24, 26. Larger sizes of this product are available via Special Order (lead times and minimum purchase may apply; please contact Dairy Connection for details).
