News Release: Researchers Unlock the Secret Behind Nutty-Flavored Cheddar Cheese (754 words)
Drake says that there may be three methods to accelerate nutty flavor: the use of starter cultures capable of releasing the required amino acids; addition of the required amino acids into cheese milk or slurry; and accelerating the conversion rate of the required amino acids into aroma compounds.
Since nutty flavor is a desirable trait and occurs predominantly and unpredictably in aged cheese, the next step is to find a way to promote nutty flavor in younger cheeses, Drake says.
Volatile aroma components from Cheddar cheeses with and without nutty flavors were isolated and characterized using solvent extraction with high vacuum distillation, dynamic headspace analysis, gas chromatography-olfactometry, and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.
