Thermophilic bacteria are the most preferred starter culture

Bacteria-based starter cultures are classified into two types, namely, thermophilic and mesophilic bacteria. Thermophilic bacteria are characterized by their ability to grow at temperatures above 40 °C, while mesophilic bacteria grow in medium-range temperatures. The major reason for the preference of thermophilic bacteria is due to their ability to ferment galactose as well as glucose, which is desirable in some cheese, especially mozzarella and cheddar. Cheese and butter are the major application areas of thermophilic starter cultures, whereas mesophilic starter cultures are preferred during the production of yogurt. Generally, any dairy-based product that does not require high temperatures to dry the curd will utilize mesophilic cultures. Some of the major manufacturers of bacteria-based starter cultures include the likes of Chr. Hansen A/S (Denmark), DuPont (US), and DSM (Netherlands). In the case of Chr. Hansen, a majority of its starter culture products use thermophilic cultures

Multi-strain mix helps incorporate adjunct functions to the final product, thereby experiencing massive demand

A multi-strain mix is used in the production of cheese and yogurt as a probiotic or prebiotic. It offers benefits, such as flavor homogeneity, easier identification of afflicted strains, and increased acid production rate when strains are cultivated together. As the demand for cheese is increasing, many products with similar compositions, such as flavored cheese and yogurt, are coming into the market, which is expected to increase the demand for multi-strain mix starter cultures. Most leading manufacturers such as Chr. Hansen Holding A/S (Denmark), DuPont (US), and LB Bulgaricum (Bulgaria) have a large part of their product portfolio consisting of multi-strains. In the case of Chr. Hansen, the multi-strain mix consists of bacteria such as Streptococcus thermophilus, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, and Lactobacillus rhamnosus.
