- HP6 gives medium height and density, a rapid growth. HP 6 HYP provides a quite strong proteolysis which allows a development even in ‘difficult’ substrates and an intermediate lipolysis. Difficult substrates would be milk with a lot of added cream eg Brie or triple cream or pastes made from almond and cashews
- HP 6 allows an enhancement of cheese appearance, a production of enzymes and the elimination of It gives a whiteness appearance and stability beneath the wrapper, speed of mould growth, ageing stability, and aroma development.
- HP6 should ideally be used in conjunction with Geotrichum Candidum.
