Hansen is now launching a phage robust adjunct culture that increases the fat perception of fresh dairy products and maintains good flavor through shelf life: eXact NG Flavor+. The new culture, which is a blend of Lactobacillus species, shows an ability to improve the flavor profile during storage of fresh dairy products.
