Depending on the type of cheese, this cheese curd is then gently heated to 50-55 ° C in the copper kettle, so that the broken grain contracts further and loses even more whey, which is called “burning of the break “.

The higher the temperature, the more whey comes out and the higher the dry matter. By further processing, the water content and thus the strength and shelf life of the cheese is influenced.

Wash the break

After cutting the jelly, some of the whey is replaced with water to reduce the proportion of milk sugar and thus the level of acidificati
