Arla Foods Ingredients Bulletin 1 Yield improvement in cheese with Nutrilac® CH-4560 www.arlafoodsingredients.com Arla Foods Ingredients Bulletin Want to improve yield by up to 18%* without reducing quality? The challenge of increasing yields whilst maintaining the quality and characteristics of your cheese products is one faced by many cheese makers. With it’s unique formulation, Nutrilac® CH-4560 can help to increase yields by up to 18%* and simultaneously reduce your raw material costs by up to 4%*, in both low and full fat cheeses. 2 Nutrilac® CH-4560 may be the solution At Arla Foods Ingredients we have expertise in producing specialised milk and whey protein solutions, that utilise the functional benefits from all milk protein fractions. Nutrilac® CH-4560 can be used within most cheese types to bring benefits which include: Benefits of Nutrilac® CH-4560 〉 Can increase yield by up to 18%* 〉 Reduce raw material cost by up to 4%* 〉 Increase the water content by up to 3%*, without negative effects *Dependent on cheese type. Arla Foods Ingredients Bulletin Why choose Nutrilac® CH-4560? Cost savings through improved water binding capacity Feature: The water binding capacity of Nutrilac® CH-4560 protein particles are significantly higher than regular casein protein. 〉 Benefit: Nutrilac® CH-4560 makes it possible to increase the water content in cheese by up to 3%, without resulting in softer textures. 〉 Milky flavour Feature: It is very important that the flavour profile of all ingredients used are fresh and milky, especially in the case of fresh cheese types. Nutrilac® CH-4560 contributes to the flavour in the same way as milk fat would. 〉 Benefit: As a result of the selected raw materials, Nutrilac® CH-4560 has a surprisingly milky taste. 〉 Cost savings through shorter ripening period Feature: When adding Nutrilac® CH-4560 to your cheese, the strong casein network is interrupted. This phenomenon makes the ripening speed up, due to the fact that fewer protein bindings need to be cleaved in order to achieve the smoothness of the final product. 〉 Benefit: Nutrilac® CH-4560 reduces the ripening period as much as 1-3 weeks, which leads to an overall time shortening of the cheese production, giving rise to a cost saving based on optimised utilisation of storage facilities. 〉 3 Arla Foods Ingredients Bulletin Cheese types & Nutrilac® usage Yield increase efficiency Obtainable yield increase Recommended dosage level* Hard Cheese e.g. Emmenthal, Manchego, Cheddar +++ 8-12% 0.15-0.3% Semihard Cheese e.g. Gouda, Edam, Tilsit, Port Salut +++ 8-12% 0.2-0.4% Pasta Filata e.g. Mozzarella, Provolone, Kashkaval ++ 6-10% 0.2-0.6% Fresh Cheese e.g. Burgos, Minas, Panela, Cottage Cheese +++ 10-15% 0.2-0.6% Moulded Cheese e.g. Camembert, Blue Cheese +++ 12-18% 0.2-0.5% White Salted Cheese e.g. Feta, Bulgarian ++ 10-15% 0.3-0.5% Cheese type *) Dosage based on the volume of cheese milk, for full fat cheese. For low fat cheese, higher dosages can be used. Frequently asked questions Is Nutrilac® CH-4560 easy to use? Yes. The special production method results in a fast dispersible powder, allowing Nutrilac® CH-4560 to easily dissolve in both water and milk. If resting longer than 30 minutes, you are required to stir the solution, to ensure a homogeneous mix. Does the addition of Nutrilac® CH-4560 change the protein breakdown during ripening? No. Unlike whey proteins in general, the protein particles from Nutrilac® CH-4560 do not influence the casein breakdown (soluble nitrogen). The protein particles are placed individually in the cheese matrix, and the ripeningenzymes therefore have full access to perform the proteolysisof the caseins. Will the cheese become more bitter from adding Nutrilac® CH-4560? No. Bitter taste in cheese is a result of a slow proteolysis of casein, creating long chained peptides with a bitter taste. Tests show that Nutrilac® CH-4560 does not slow the proteolysis.
