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!
