Abstract

Four types of Turkish white cheese with good curd and acid formation properties were produced, one by using commercial starter culture and the other three by using different combinations of isolates from traditional cheese with no starters added. The effects of using these combinations on quality were determined. Starter culture combinations did not influence the chemical properties of cheese significantly. However, one cheese type produced from combinations of isolates of rural cheese was found to be comparable to the samples produced from commercial starter cultures in terms of sensory and microbial quality. This combination could have promise for white cheese production.
