      Hello, We are really interested in purchasing VB and also culture for Blue Cheese, I wanted to know if there are any animal products in both cultures (such as milk).
      Thank you

      Alejandro
      Hi Alejandro,
      Thank you for your interest in our products and your question below.

      The VB and our Blue Cheese culture, PV (Penicillium rogueforti) have lactose. I have suggested another strain of the Penicillium candidum (HP6) that does not have dairy that may be of interest.

      Many of our culture do contain milk components, primarily lactose, as that is a component of the fermentation process. However, we are seeing that the supplier is changing some of the culture processes to allow for a dairy free application. We are hoping to have more of those culture available in a month or so.
