To date, the range includes four products. Three FLAV-ANTAGE® Blue Penicillium roqueforti in liquid form designed to bring the typical colors of blue cheese, develop its uniquely delicate to tangy taste and deliver the texture found in cheeses such as Gorgonzola, Danablu and Stilton. These products conveniently come in two different sizes to answer the need of all cheesemakers.
LALCULT® Blue LN1029, a heterofermentative gas producing culture.

Based on the feedback from cheesemakers currently trialling LALCULT® Blue LN1029, it produces beautiful openings.
