Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 1 answerhow do I test the activity of my lipase powder? It is well past 6 months but has remained frozen the entire time.BEST ANSWER: Let's assume we don't have access to a lab and expensive reagents. The best test is taste and flavor. Use the lipase you have in the cheese recipe and you could make a control recipe where you do not add the lipase. Lipase will make the cheese sharper, like think Feta vs. Mozarella or sharp vs. mild cheddar is a better comparison actually. I have used lipase that old and it has worked so maybe consider adding a little extra. Raw milk is a source of the lipase enzymes as well.
