The sensory properties of probiotic Cheddar cheeses made using Lactobacillus acidophilus 4962, Lb. casei 279, Bifidobacterium longum 1941, Lb. acidophilus LAFTI® L10, Lb. paracasei LAFTI® L26 or B. lactis LAFTI® B94 were assessed after ripening for 9 months at 4 °C. Probiotic cheeses except those with Lb. acidophilus 4962 were significantly different (P<0.05) from the control without any probiotic organism. Acceptability of probiotic cheese with Lb. casei 279 was significantly lower (P<0.05) than that of the control cheese with bitterness and sour-acid taste as the major defects. Concentration of acetic acid in probiotic cheeses was higher (P0.05). Increased proteolysis in probiotic cheeses ..View full abstract
