    a. A salt and water solution. It is commonly used for soft cheeses as they are immersed in
ine or washed with a
ine solution prior to maturation. Some cheeses such as feta are stored in
    b. The holes that form inside the cheeses. They are formed by the ca
on dioxide released by bacteria during maturation.
    c. Microbes added to the milk during cheesemaking that assist to mature or ripen the cheese. These edible moulds create the flavours and textures within the cheese. Most are strains of Penicillium such as P. Candidum, which forms the rind of white mould cheeses and P. Roqueforti, used in blue cheese.
    d. This is the external surface of the cheese. The rind can contain moulds or bacteria (such as white mould and washed rind cheeses), a hard crust (such as parmesan or gruyere), or be covered in cloth or wax (as for many cheddars). Fresh cheeses generally do not have one.
    e. Is an enzyme that converts milk from a liquid to a solid during the initial stages of cheesemaking. Traditionally rennet was made from animals, but most cheeses are now made with non-animal rennet that is produced in laboratories.
    f. At the beginning of cheesemaking, the milk is set into a gel, then separated into solid (curd) and liquid (whey) components. The curd is used to make cheese and consists mainly of protein, fat and fat-soluble vitamins and minerals.
    g. Cheeses that ripen from the outside in towards the centre. They normally have a coating of special moulds or bacteria on the outside.
    h. Cheeses that are usually made in small amounts and generally handmade.
    i. Most chesses other than fresh cheeses spend a certain amount of time before they are ready to eat. Such as white mould cheeses are matured for about 6–8 weeks, and cheddar cheeses can be matured for anything from three months to two years.
    Starter cultures
