Each sachet contains bacteria carefully selected for the optimum production of Italian type cheeses, such as Mozzarella, Romano, Parmigiano, Provalone and Grana (Reggiano).

Suggested dosage is 1/8 teaspoon per 4 - 5 litres milk (approx 1 gallon). Each sachet is good for 225 litres (nealy 50 gallons) of milk but please note that these quantities are approximate. Follow your recipe to ensure the correct dosage is used since the quantity of culture required can vary considerably.


Always open the sachet in a sterile manner and re-seal and replace in the freezer quickly to ensure minimum ingress of unwanted micro-organisms.

The starter, when added to milk 'ripens' it, making it ready for cheese production. When the starter is used in combination with rennet then the consistent production of cheese can be achieved, batch after batch!
