Medium-fast cultures give a milder and slightly slower fermentation. They are good all-round starter cultures that provide a full and ripe flavor as well as good safety.

They can also be used for slow-ripening Southern European sausage varieties such as fuet, chorizo, salame, cacciatore, sobrasada or 'nduja.
