The effect of calcium lactate (CL) on both the sensory and microbiological quality of Fiordilatte cheese was evaluated. The novelty of this work is the addition of the salt to the product brine, prior to packaging, instead of adding calcium during process. Cheese quality was monitored for 8 days by evaluating the spoilage and the development of the main sensory attributes. Results demonstrated a modest inhibition effect of CL on the microbial proliferation, whereas from a sensory point of view, a somewhat improvement in the odour and texture was recorded, thus suggesting CL as a valid alternative to calcium chloride.
