MONTREAL, Quebec – Jan. 12, 2016 – PRLog — If you think B. linens are bed sheets with holes and stains, think again. They are actually microorganisms known as Brevibacterium linen, the most dominant bacteria formed when washing cheese rinds – i.e., moistening the surface by rubbing it down with a salt brine, liquor, or water, thereby creating an austere flavor and a stinky aroma.
The odor of cheeses in the washed-rind category are usually quite intense, but the flavors are mild and creamy (thanks to the use of triple cream), often with notes of cooked beef, mustard, and anchovy. Triple-cream cheeses are made by adding extra cream before the curd is formed, creating a butterfat content of 75% or more, as required by French law.
Other smelly cheeses are the blues which feature a high moisture content and a soft, open texture. Strong, dynamic flavors are evenly distributed throughout the interior of blue cheese where the blue mold growing inside the cheese is exposed to oxygen. Most blue cheeses are made with a culture mix containing a bit of B. linens added to the milk before the curd is formed, a process that is partly responsible for the strong, unpleasant smell of the cheese.
While stinky cheeses may be a delicacy for humans, smelly silage used as fodder for the cows providing the milk for these cheeses is a whole other matter. Hay, silage, or grain that has an offensive odor should be discarded and not fed to livestock; they are associated with the development of listeriosis and botulism. This is likely due to poor fermentation such as a silo improperly covered or round bale silage with a hole in it or an inadequate amount of stretched film around it.
The problem is serious but the fix is simple. You need to contact Danny Nadler, president and CEO ofTire Sidewall Depot. He has been successfully serving the agricultural industry since 1995 by filling the need for safer, more efficient and sanitary bunker silo coverage.
Tire Sidewall Depot offers nylon, bias ply truck-tire sidewalls and aircraft tire rings as user-friendly, cost effective and cleaner alternatives to heavy, burdensome whole tires often used for this purpose.
This system not only protects the environment and preserves the nutritional content of silage and feed for cattle; it sustains the production of those stinky but delectable cheeses.
