Turophile Terms – T

We’ve reached the T’s, Turophiles!

By now you should know that a turophile is a cheese lover! (If not, shame on you!)

Like pasteurization, thermalization is another process where milk is heat-treated before the cheese making process.  Thermalization, however, uses a lower temperature for a shorter period of time.

A triple-creme cheese has a minimum butterfat content of 75% or higher, usually with a bloomy rind.  I like to call it a “cousin” to Brie–similar, but oh soooooo smooth and much creamier!
