Calcium Chloride is used with store-bought milk and goats milk to give a firmer setting curd for easier cutting in the making of hard cheeses.  The heat treating process most commercial milk goes through decreases the amount of calcium leading to a less firm curd.  The natural homogenization of goat milk also leads to a less firm curd.

Each 1 oz. bottle contains enough Calcium Chloride to treat 45 gallons of milk.

Store in a cool, dark place.

Note: Do NOT use Calcium Chloride when making Mozzarella.  It will keep the curds from stretching.
