Bactoferm Mold-600 (formerly M-EK-4 ) is a starter culture which produces a white/light grayish appearance on the surface of molded dried sausages. It also has a well pronounced mushroom flavor and aroma. With high humidity and optimum temperature, the culture is fast growing, and produces a dense, short white surface coverage with an even appearance (typically found in France).
The culture promotes a traditional white mold cover. Moderate to good ability to control the surface flora and suppress the growth of undesirable organisms such as indigenous molds, yeasts and bacteria.
Usage (Click here for pdf)
One pouch of freeze-dried culture is mixed into 1-2 liters of tap water at approximately 20°C (68°F) and equilibrated for 2hours at room temperature. The suspension is diluted in the relevant amount of tap water and is then ready for use.
Chlorinated water might reduce the activity of the culture.The mold is inoculated after the stuffing (and eventually acclimatization process), either by dipping or spraying or shower. The spore suspension should be stirred continuously to prevent settling of the spores, and the suspension should only beused on day of preparation (danger of yeast contamination).
