Curd production

Curd making involves the addition of rennet or acid to cheese milk that causes the proteins to clot or coagulate so they can be carefully cut into curds and whey. It is important to treat the curds gently to reduce curd damage and to keep fat losses to a minimum.

At this stage in cheeses making it is critical to produce consistent yields and moisture levels in a hygienic environment
