In an attempt to produce buffalo milk Cheddar cheese with a typical Cheddar flavour, ripening was done at 13+or-1 degrees C. Although increases in lipolytic and proteolytic activities were observed compared with cheese ripening at 8+or-1 degrees C, typical Cheddar flavour was not produced. Buffalo milk cheese had an acceptable flavour after 8 months ripening, but calcium lactate crystals formed on the cheese surface. Cheese ripened for 9 months had an unclean flavour, a weak body and a greasy texture.
