Yeasts are a critical group of microorganisms for the production of certain food products in the milk and dairy industry. Their contribution is essential to achieve the right structure and aroma of certain cheeses and fermented milk.
The main purpose served by yeasts is their significant contribution to the final properties of some products, such as kefir and gorgonzola (Saccharomyces Spp. can be used for both products).
The activity of yeasts in the above-mentioned products occurs in combination with those of other microorganisms or ingredients used in production.
