Optimal texturing abilities
After almost two years of lab development, a new phage-unrelated, mesophilic culture called XT-313 is available for texturing sour cream and creamy buttermilk. This strain offers customers an effective alternative in the event of phage attacks. In a market where the demand for low-fat products is on the rise, need is increasing for strains with high texturing ability. The less fat the sour cream contains, the greater the texturing that can be handled by the new culture.
