brine, cheese, white cabbage, cilantro, water activity, shelf life


This article investigated brine cheeses' nutritional value and safety by adding vegetable additives (dry powder of white cabbage and coriander). Brynza brine cheese was used as the basis for the recipe. By the chemical composition of the cheese with vegetable, additives has a significantly higher protein content
(26.27 g/100g), while the fat content is lower (14.98 g/100g). There is a high content of amino acids and fatty acids (PUFA 6%, MUFA 24%). During prolonged storage of brine cheese, water activity aw decreases in control from 0.997 to 0.990, mass fraction of moisture increases from 60% to 62.5%, in the brine cheese with vegetable additives aw from 0.998 to 0.991, mass fraction of moisture from 61.1% to 63.7%.The use of vegetable additives in the formulation of cheeses does not affect the deterioration of microbiological parameters compared to the control sample. As a result of experimental studies, the shelf life of brine cheese with vegetable additives is 8-10 days.
