Demineralisation of the Curd

When the curd is becoming more acidic while it is still in the whey, a large proportion of the calcium ions will be removed from the curd along with the whey. This is called demineralisation of the curd. This leads to a chalky and crumbly body in the finished cheese. Example are English acid cheeses, traditional Camembert and lactic set cheeses.

If the minimal acidification occurs in the whey (so less minerals will be lost), and most of the acidification occurs when the curd is placed in the hoop, in this scenario there is less demineralisation of the curd, so more minerals stay within the curd and this gives a softer more flexible body. Examples are Swiss styles, modern Camembert.
