Pregastric lipases are enzymes that are extracted from the glands at the base of the tongue of kid goats, lambs and calves.
Lipases release fatty acids with short and medium chain and give cheese a distinctive flavor.

Lipases are composed of several enzymes (at least 6) and can be used as a natural means to enhance the flavor of dairy products.
Clerici lipases are a natural source of flavor, they give cheese a richer, more persistent and characteristic aroma, increasing the efficiency of the production process while shortening aging.
