pH Test Papers
Each pack contains 100 test-paper strips to cover pH range 4.0 - 7.5.
Top quality, British-made (Johnson) test paper strips that cover the pH range most relevant to the production of cheeses and other dairy products. The strips are presented in a clear box, which carries a colour comparator chart.
They are extremely simple to use:
- A strip should be dipped into the test solution for 1-2 seconds
- Excess liquid allowed to drain off and the colour is then compared against the chart within 30-40 seconds
The colour produced will accurately indicate the pH of the solution
GUIDANCE: The pH when salting is directly related to the rate of salt absorption. More salt can be absorbed at low pH than at higher pH. However at low pH (<5.0), the body of the cheese is hard and brittle. At higher pH (>5.6), the body remains elastic
