Halal is a standardized rennet manufactured from extracts of the fourth stomach of calves and/or adult bovines. “NB” indicates that this product is formulated with “No Benzoate” added. As benzoate helps maintain the microbial quality of liquid enzyme products, Chr. Hansen strongly advises customers to adhere to the recommended storage and transportation temperatures for NB products. If this is not possible, a benzoate-free powder product or liquid formulated with benzoate should be used. The product contains a milk-clotting enzyme which is highly specific for kappa-casein, resulting in very good curd formation. The general proteolitic activity also has a significant influence on the flavor and texture development of cheeses. The active milk-coagulating enzymes are chymosin (EC 126.96.36.199) and bovine pepsin (EC 188.8.131.52).
