Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9937162A1] The invention relates to a method for preparing cheese, comprising the steps of: a) concentrating milk by means of reverse osmosis or nanofiltration in combination with ultrafiltration and optionally diafiltration and/or microfiltration to form a concentrated milk having a content of casein which is 2-4 times higher than said content of the milk; b) adding rennet to the concentrated milk and accomplishing a first phase of a coagulating process at reduced temperature in which kappa casein is split and a precoagulated milk is obtained; c) carrying out a second phase of a coagulating process in which the precoagulated milk is heated to obtain a curd; d) draining the curd; and e) forming the cheese.
