Traditional Minas cheese is an artisanal cheese manufactured by farmers on a small scale, utilizing raw bovine milk. The occurrence and effects of the dry and rainy seasons on yeast populations in traditional Serro Minas cheese, one of the most popular cheeses produced in Brazil, were studied over the course of 60 days of ripening. A total of 19 yeast species were identified via sequence analysis of the D1/D2 domains of the large subunit of the rRNA gene. Fourteen yeast species were obtained from cheese produced during the dry season and fifteen species were obtained from cheese produced during the rainy season. High diversity indices for the yeast species were determined for cheese manufactured during both seasons (average H???D=1.7 and H???R=1.5, respectively). The predominant species in Serro Minas cheese included Debaryomyces hansenii, Kodamaea ohmeri and Kluyveromyces marxianus. Debaryomyces hansenii 28.12 showed low lipolytic and high proteolytic activity. Kluyveromyces marxianus 83F and 60P demonstrated lipolytic and ?-galactosidase activity, respectively. Kodamaea ohmeri 88A displayed low lipolytic and ?-galactosidase activity. Maximal lipase, ?-galactosidase and protease activity were observed at 20C and pH 6.0, 30C and pH 7.0 and 50C and pH 6.0, respectively. Considering that D. hansenii 28.12, K. ohmeri 88A and K marxianus 60P together showed protease, lipase and ?-galactosidase activity in this study, further research on the possibility of including these yeasts as part of a starter culture and research on their effects on the sensory properties of Serro Minas cheese merit more study.
