So, what is cheag microbian?

Cheag microbian is a plant-based coagulant that is commonly used in cheese-making. It is derived from a species of Rhizomucor miehei, a type of filamentous fungus. This coagulant is often preferred over animal-based rennet as it is suitable for vegetarians and those with certain dietary restrictions. Cheag microbian works by breaking down milk proteins, causing them to coagulate and form curds. It produces a clean and mild flavor profile in cheese, making it a popular choice among cheese-makers. It is also known for its consistency, allowing for a more reliable and consistent cheese-making process.
