What is the difference between rennet and junket tablets?

1 Answer

Junket contains the same enzyme as calf rennet. The difference is that junket often has a high pepsin content, which means that when used in cheesemaking the cheese may develop bitterness. However, rennet is a more highly refined product with a higher chymosin content and lower pepsin content and as such, is less likely to develop a bitter flavour in cheese. Junket tablets are also a more expensive method of obtaining the same level of milk coagulation, in comparison with rennet.
