In this study, a white-brined cheese with different protein content (similar to 12.5, 14.0, 15.5 or 17.0%) but the same total solids (similar to 40%) was produced by the direct recombination system, using retentate powder, skim-milk powder and anhydrous milk fat. For cheese-making, cheese milk composition was adjusted to the equivalent to that of cheese. During a 30 day of ripening period, changes in the gross composition, nitrogen fractions and ripening indices of cheese samples were monitored at 10 day intervals.
