30 Mar 2018 --- DSM, a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials, have introduced DelvoADD, a portfolio of adjunct cultures for creating unique, aged cheddar cheese taste profiles. The new portfolio includes seven adjunct cultures designed to create flavor complexity and memory of typical mature cheddars (DelvoADD 200-C) or create complex savory flavor with the typical umami notes (DelvoADD Savory).
DelvoADD complements DSM’s portfolio for cheddar cheese, which includes cultures, coagulants, bulk starters, lipases and cheese-coating solutions. The range also includes solutions for reducing ripening time by up to 30 percent for a more efficient production (DelvoADD EZ-Age) or to create full-fat flavor in low-fat cheese (DelvoADD Reduce Fat), in line with the market trends.
“DSM is pleased to introduce the DelvoADD portfolio of adjuncts for cheddar cheese producers who want to differentiate on taste,” says Evandro Oliveira de Souza, Business Lead for Cheese at DSM Food Specialties. “This addition to our cheddar cheese range gives cheesemakers more flexibility to develop their desired taste profile, whether they want to enhance a savory or buttery note, or prefer to increase caramel-like sweet notes, or want to create a more mature cheddar flavor.”
Cheddar cheese is one of the most popular cheese-types in North America and consumer taste preferences are migrating toward more premium and unique cheddar flavor profiles, creating many opportunities for innovation. Cheddar cheese manufacturers will differentiate their products by crafting sweet, buttery, savory, and mature flavor notes or a combination of these, and are looking for new ingredient options and solutions to develop balanced taste profiles in their cheddars, without off flavors.
DSM plans to showcase the new DelvoADD range at the International Cheese Technology Exposition, 17-19 April in Wisconsin, US. Visitors to the event can also find out more about DSM’s full range of products in cheese segments around the globe. This includes DelvoCheese cultures, bulk starters and media, Maxiren coagulants, Piccantase and Capalase lipases, DelvoCid biopreservation, and DelvoCoat and Pack-Age cheese ripening solutions.
For over 100 years, DSM has collaborated with cheesemakers around the world to create unique cheese products. They offer unique ingredients which aim to differentiate products on flavor and texture. DSM’s portfolio of food ingredients is used in everything from dairy, baking, fruit juice, beer, wine, savory and functional food segments.
