So, what is microbial rennet?

Microbial rennet is a plant-based coagulant commonly used in cheese-making as a replacement for traditional animal-derived rennet. It is produced by fermenting selected strains of bacteria and fungi to produce chymosin, the enzyme responsible for coagulating milk proteins during the cheese-making process. Unlike animal-derived rennet, microbial rennet is a vegetarian and halal-friendly option that produces consistent results, making it a popular choice for cheese producers. It is also more cost-effective and sustainable than animal-derived alternatives, as it does not require the use of animals in the production process.
