Résumé
The changes in the gross chemical composition, physico-chemical parameters, nitrogen fractions, caseins and their degradation products, and some fat characteristics were studied during the ripening process of 10 batches of Picón Bejes-Tresviso cheese, a traditional blue-veined variety made in the north of Spain. The values of the different compositional and physico-chemical parameters at the end of ripening did not differ very much from those found in other Spanish and European blue-veined cheeses. The total soluble nitrogen and the non-protein nitrogen increased by factors of 5.4 and 8, respectively, at the end of ripening compared to the values found in cheese curd after salting. The final values of all the nitrogen fractions showed that Picón Bejes-Tresviso cheese undergoes extensive and in depth proteolysis. The intense degradation of the caseins during ripening was confirmed when the caseins and their degradation products were quantified using PAGE techniques. The autooxidation of the fat does not seem very important during the ripening of this cheese. Nevertheless, lipolysis was very intense; the acidity index of the fat values (free fatty acid contents) increased by a factor of about 20 during ripening.
