- SHAKE VERY WELL BEFORE USE – as this product tends to un-mix during storage it is necessary to shake well before each use to guarantee the ideal and unique mixture of enzymes.
- WalcoRen® Liquid Rennet Paste Piccante is especially used for strongly flavoured cheeses where goat’s-lipase is wanted for the development of the typical ripening flavours. But also mixtures of milk or pure cow’s-milk will be very suitable in combination with WalcoRen® Liquid Rennet Paste Piccante to produce extraordinary cheeses.
- The dosage quantity is determined by the quantity of milk, the required process parameters and the enzyme concentration - pH, temperature, required coagulation time, pasteurised milk.
- WalcoRen® Liquid Rennet Paste Piccante should be stirred into 15 to 30 times of the amount of chlorine free cold water and then be added to the milk. Because of its natural pureness WalcoRen®– Liquid Rennet Paste Piccante does not need to be filtered and can therefore be directly added to the milk.
WalcoRen® Liquid Rennet Paste Piccante is a brownish to yellow cloudy liquid with natural cheesy odour and contains only approx. 20% table-salt (sodium chlorite) and max. 0,5% of Sodium-Benzoate and is therefore safe to utilise.
As with all natural enzymes, WalcoRen® Liquid Rennet Paste Piccante should be stored in a dark place at a temperature between 0°C and +8°C.
