There are hundreds of different types of cheese, but each is made using similar principles of coagulating the proteins in milk to form curds, and then separating the curds from the liquid whey. The coagulation of milk proteins can be done as follows: • Using rennet (or ‘chymosin ! " an en#yme e$tracted from cal%es stomachs that coagulates the proteins in milk. &ennet produced by micro"organisms is a%ailable for %egetarian cheeses. • 'ermenting to form lactic acid. • (dding acid (e.g. lemon )uice, lime )uice or %inegar!. • *oiling or • Using plant e$tracts (e.g. papaya sap (papain en#yme!, fig bark (ficin en#yme!, stems of *ryophylum species or lea%es of +alotropis procera.
