The fermentation-derived Chymostar™ enables fast milk coagulation and ensures balanced flavor and texture development for a range of dairy applications
Wilmington, Del., June 4, 2020 – DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences (DuPont NYSE:DD) today announced the global launch of DuPont™ Danisco® Chymostar™, a new milk coagulating preparation for the dairy industry that offers optimal coagulation and ripening kinetics.
Chymostar™ can be used for producing any type of cheese: hard, semi hard, soft, mold-ripened, low-fat and ingredient cheeses and is the latest addition to DuPont’s robust dairy ingredient portfolio—which includes proven products like Carlina™ Animal Rennet and Marzyme® Liquid Microbial Coagulants to help solve any challenge that dairy producers may face.
“Chymostar™ rounds out our portfolio in coagulants so we can serve our cheese customers with all critical ingredients: cultures, coagulants and lipases based on their specific needs,” said Clementina Dellomonaco, global product line manager, Dairy Enzymes, DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences. “This latest solution builds on our vast expertise in cheese cultures technology and applications know-how And, tthis coupling of product innovation and years of experience in industrial and specialty cheese manufacturing elevates any single new product; our customers receive holistic support.”
Chymostar™ features a number of unique benefits, including ideal curd formation and firming speed. It enables fast flavor development due to its balanced proteolytic profile, thus helping mitigate the time and cost of maturation. Developed for a wide array of global consumers, it was important to DuPont that it be preservative-free, Kosher, halal-certified and suitable for use in vegetarian products.
“In testing, we have found that Chymostar™’s improved texture development and meltability set it apart,” said Dellomonaco. “We’re excited about the reliability and versatility of this coagulant for customers around the world looking to make a wide array of dairy products.”
Chymostar™ also meets purity and thermolability requirements for whey quality. It is inactivated in whey by standard pasteurization techniques and is a purified product – clear of lipase and amylase side activities.
