So, what is stremsel?

Stremsel is an essential ingredient used in the production of cheese. It is an enzyme complex that coagulates milk by breaking down the protein, casein, into curds and whey. Traditionally, it was extracted from the stomach lining of young calves, but now it is produced synthetically or extracted from microbial or fungal sources. Stremsel is crucial in the cheese-making process as it helps to create a firm texture and impart flavor to the cheese. It is available in liquid or powder form and is added to milk during the cheese-making process. Stremsel is an essential ingredient for producing high-quality cheese with consistent texture and flavor.
