PEDREGOSA-CABRERO, Álvaro; LOPEZ-RUIZ, Ángel Luis  and  OLALLA-HERRERA, Manuel. Innovation in the development of melted cheese for slicing from fresh goat cheese. Ars Pharm [online]. 2020, vol.61, n.1, pp.49-56.  Epub July 20, 2020. ISSN 2340-9894.


The main objective of this work is to develop a milk derivative, melted cheese, with sensory properties suitable for consumption, through a technologically viable process for artisanal dairy companies in Andalusia, so as to improve the competitiveness of that sector, through the diversification of its production and the use of productive resources.


For the elaboration of melted cheese, fresh cheese was made from pasteurized goat milk, pressed type, which was crushed and subjected to the casting process. The analytical methods were physical - chemical, sensory and statistical analysis.


After the analytical determinations, it is observed that during the smelting process the dry extract of the final product is increased, as well as the pH by the addition of lactic acid, which is determinant in the structural development. As for the sensory parameters, the ‘Odor Butter’ and ‘Odor Baked Milk’ stand out, due to the applied heat treatment, as well as notes to spices.


The results obtained in this work indicate the possibility, both from a technological and sensorial point of view, to develop a block cheese made from fresh goat cheese.
