mozzarella cheese

Grades 3-12 (Kit)

Students make fresh mozzarella cheese and explore a career as an artisan cheesemaker as they discover the science, art, and craft involved in the development of specialty cheeses. This kit includes rennet (enzymes), and citric acid (acid), two of the components used in the cheesemaking process. We include enough rennet and citric acid for six batches of mozzarella cheese. The recipe and full instructions can be found in the lesson plans Cheesemaking: A Science, An Art, and a CraftCheesemaking: From Liquid to Solid, Enzymes and Bacteria are Whey Cool! and, Say Cheese for Protein located on the National Agricultural Literacy Curriculum Matrix.

Please Note: If you are not using this kit immediately, the contents of the kit need to be stored in a refrigerator or freezer.

    Mozzarella Cheese Kit is AMAZING!

    The contents and instructions are spot on and the students LOVED seeing the progression from milk to cheese! Their reactions were priceless as the texture changes and such. They have a much better understanding about the evidence that chemical reactions are occurring. THANK YOU!!!

    My students love to make cheese. Some of them get grossed out by the texture when the curds start separating from the whey, but over all they enjoy the lab and eating the finished product. I like that the kit has everything I need and I don't have to go looking for individual ingredients and fixing recipes to match what I need/can get. Very convenient.

    We also made butter the same day to demonstrate physical reactions.
