What is rennet cheese?

Rennet is the general name for enzymes that act on proteins in milk. It’s purpose in a ruminant’s stomach is to curdle milk for easier digestion, the same way it curdled our shepherd’s drink. Rennet serves the same purpose in cheesemaking: it triggers coagulation.

Are animals killed for rennet?

From animal stomachs. Most stomach-derived rennet is taken from the fourth stomach of young, unweaned calves. These animals are not killed expressly for their rennet; rather they are killed for meat production (in this case, veal) and the rennet is a byproduct.

Why is cheese inhumane?

If you buy cheese, you’re paying someone to kill cows. Eating cheese is no less cruel than eating meat: After cows used for dairy production spend their entire lives being forcibly separated from their beloved babies and being treated as milk machines, they’re slaughtered for burgers and other meat.

Do humans have rennet?

In humans, who don’t have rennin, milk is coagulated by pepsin, a powerful enzyme in gastric juice that breaks down proteins into smaller peptides. Pepsin is one of the main digestive enzymes in humans and many other animals.
