Cheese Coloring

Coloring with Turmeric

Q. I'm wondering if there is any disadvantage to using turmeric powder or paste as a colorant?  I realize that with a large amount of turmeric, there could be flavor detected, but would it harm the cultures, or impede the coagulation?

A. We have found that turmeric in any quantity can leave a bitter flavor in cheese.
