Cheesemaking is a precise art that at times calls for experimentation (how do you think someone came up with blue cheese?) and at other times calls for the precise use of specific cheese making supplies. One such specific ingredient is rennet, an enzyme that helps to solidify milk in order to create delicious, mouth-watering cheeses. Available in either a liquid or tablet form, getting the right rennet for your cheese recipe is an important part of the cheesemaking process. The Walcoren rennet tablets are excellent for all types of cheese as they are created using animal products – specifically, the stomachs of calves, kids and lambs. However, don’t let this discourage you! Rennet suppliers have been using a traditional technique of rennet extraction and creation that was established in France in 1872.
The Walcoren-Dry Calf Rennet Tablets come in a pack of 20 and are each scored so they can be broken easily into four pieces. Whether you’re craving a camembert or a strong aged cheddar, these rennet tables are must-haves when it comes to choosing your cheese ingredients. To use these rennet tablets, dissolve a little at a time in pure, cool water. Let the tablets dissolve for about 5 to 10 minutes before pouring the mixture over the milk surface. Give it a few gentles stirs (3 or 4 will do just fine) and let the cheesemaking continue.
Although an animal-based rennet, these tablets are certified by Ecocert Canada as organic and are also non-GMO. The Walcoren-Dry Calf Rennet Tablets gets great results every time – just check out the reviews from past and current users. The CheeseMaker is determined to provide top quality products for at-home and artisan cheesemakers.

This Rennet Gives the Most Consistent Results
Posted by Unknown on 12th Jan 2018
I was trained by a traditional French cheesemaker who used calf rennet tablets to set the curd. During a few periods during my 25 years of cheesemaking I tried microbial rennet- both in liquid and tablet form. The results were not as consistent as with calf rennet which gave a firm curd and ultimately a better tasting cheese, closer to the French original. Very grateful to Steve at THECHEESEMAKER for making the calf rennet tablets available. There were times when they were difficult to obtain.
Love the product

Easy dosage and splitting of tablets. Haven't used other rennet's, so cannot compare them, but it appears to work very well.

I'm very happy with the rennet. It came quickly in the mail. im in the early stages of cheese making and having good, reputable, reliable natural rennet tables makes a huge difference and is one less thing to worry about when I'm trouble shooting. Thank you so much!
