Streptococcus thermophilus

TPF is a single strain thermophilic culture (Streptococcus thermophilus) used in the production of fresh/high moisture Italian Pasta Filata or stretched curd cheese types as well as various hard and soft styles of cheese. TPF provides the fast level acid production but minimal proteolysis and texture breakdown, via the absence of Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus which is in TPC.  For harder drier styles of pasta filata styles of cheese consider substituting some or all the TPF with TPC.
