Some of the finest lipases comes from New Zealand. Calf, Lamb and Kid-Goat Lipase are specifically blended for our store to ensure 80 cfu/gram for enhancing the aroma and flavor of cheese. The 80 cfu/gram are active lipase enzymes that produce a specific ratio of free fatty acids as a result of milkfat lipolysis when added directly to warmed milk. The lipase powders are extracted from pre-gastric tongue root glands of calves, lambs or kid-goats.
We offer three types of lipase in 100 gram (100 gram free samples are available to licensed cheesemakers) and 500 gram quantities:
Calf Pregastric Lipase: An all purpose lipase that adds a buttery and delicate to taste to your cheese. This can be used in any type of cheese for a slightly enhanced flavor. Renco lipase 80 lfg/gram.
Lamb Pregastric Lipase: This lipase is a sharper piquant flavor. This traditional flavor works well in Pecorino, Grana and Manchego styles of cheeses. Renco lipase 80 lfg/gram.
Kid-Goat Pregastric Lipase: This lipase is extra piquant with an aromatic, spicy flavor and typically used in aged goat milk cheeses, Provolone, Feta, or Romano. Renco lipase 80/lfg/gram.
Suggested Usage Amount: Add desired amount to 20 times its weight in cool, non-chlorinated water. Stir solution frequently over a period of 10 minutes, stirring just prior to addition to milk. Add to the milk in vat 10 minutes prior to the addition of coagulant.
