Aims:  Investigation of the bacterial dynamics of a Caciotta cheese traditionally manufactured in the Montefeltro area (Central Italy) with raw cow's milk and an aqueous extract of dried flowers from Cynara cardunculus as a coagulant agent. Methods and Results:  Conventional methods and a combined PCR-DGGE approach, relying on culture-dependent and -independent analyses, was used to investigate the cheese bacterial community, with a special focus on lactic acid bacteria. A heterogeneous population, including enterococci, lactococci, lactobacilli, food spoilage and other banal microorganisms was found. None of the species detected in the vegetable rennet became dominant during cheese-making and ripening, thus suggesting a prevailing role of the adventitious microbiota coming from the raw milk and the dairy environment. Significance and Impact of the Study:  The study contributed to highlighting the influence of different technological parameters on safety and bacterial dynamics of a raw milk Caciotta cheese coagulated with vegetable rennet.
