    Aroma B

    I'd never made cheese curds using actual starter culture before. I purchased this product to give it a try because I have a recipe calling for mesophylic starter. It worked a treat and only needed 1/4 tsp. per 2 gallons of whole milk.

    Very pleased with the results and this product.

    Go-To Starter for Lite Cream Cheese

    I make a light cream cheese: 1 gallon milk, one pint cream (both off-the-shelf), 1/2 tsp Calcium Chloride, 2 drops double-strength rennet, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp Meso Aroma B starter. The family loves it. I've tried it with other starters but just don't get the result I want, the aroma isn't there. The end result is spreadable, delicious and great with pretzel thins. This is my go-to starter for this light cream cheese recipe



    Great product

    Great starter.

    One-Stop shopping for fresh cheese cultures

    Has produced wonderful fresh cheeses for me regardless of recipe or milk type. Also nice to just have to reach for one starter packer instead of needing to leaf through five or six type-specific packets.
