So, what is présure de veau?

Présure de veau, also known as calf rennet, is a natural enzyme extracted from the fourth stomach of young calves. It's commonly used in the production of cheese to coagulate milk and separate the curd from the whey. Prized for its ability to produce rich and flavorful cheeses, calf rennet has been used for centuries in traditional cheese-making. While many modern cheesemakers use vegetable-based rennet alternatives, calf rennet remains popular among purists who seek authentic and high-quality cheeses. Its strong enzymatic activity and unique flavor profile make it an essential ingredient in the art of cheesemaking.
