Description M265 is a very traditional ‘allrounder’ culture best suited to hard cheese styles. The Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis and Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris are used in many other cultures and are among the first mesophilic cultures used in modern freeze-dried starter technology. Other aromatic lactic and aromatic and ripening cultures can easily be added to this culture to improve its characteristics.
