Food

Junket is a milk-based dessert, made with sweetened milk and rennet, the digestive enzyme which curdles milk. It might best be described as a custard or a very soft, sweetened cheese.

Business

Junket is a company that made prepackaged powdered dessert mixes and ingredients for making various curdled, milk-based foods, such as rennet custard, ice cream and rennet tablets. In 1874, Christian Hansen founded Hansen's Laboratorium in Denmark to make rennet extract for the cheesemaking industry. Later in 1878, he opened up operations in the United States. Herkimer County, New York, was chosen for the headquarters, since it was the center of the US cheese industry at that time.

Character

Junket is a fictional character from the 2005 film Cinderella Man.
