The texture and microstructure of mozzarella cheese as affected by fat content, EPS producing starter culture and fat replacers
Bhaskaracharya, Raman K (2000) The texture and microstructure of mozzarella cheese as affected by fat content, EPS producing starter culture and fat replacers. Research Master thesis, Victoria University of Technology.
The main goal of this study was to manufacture low fat mozzarella cheeses using fat replacers having similar texture and microstructure characteristics as full fat mozzarella. To achieve this goal it was essential to analyse the texture characteristics including hardness, cohesiveness, springiness, chewiness and gumminess of commercial mozzarella cheeses and to study the effects of moisture, fat and protein on these characteristics.
