So, what is penicillium roqueforti?

Penicillium roqueforti is a type of mold commonly used in the production of blue cheese, including Roquefort, Gorgonzola, and Stilton. This blue-green mold gives these cheeses their distinctive appearance, aroma, and tangy flavor. The mold spores are added to the milk during the cheesemaking process, where they grow and release enzymes that break down the cheese's proteins and fats. Despite its association with cheese, penicillium roqueforti has also been researched for its potential health benefits, including its antibacterial and antioxidant properties, making it a fascinating ingredient with a rich history in culinary and medicinal traditions.
