Helps retain moisture & prevent mold
Posted by Nancy-Rebecca McCarty on 12th May 2013
I was having trouble keeping my hard cheeses from drying out and getting unwanted mold. This product is easy to use, must brush on, a few coats (let each coat dry between applications) to get a good rind. This product forms a flexible rind, which is edible (& pretty tasteless), it effectively excludes air, keeps moisture in, and somewhat inhibits mold growth if applied correctly. The rind is flexible, unlike wax, it doesn't crack in ageing. Helps improve quality of end product a lot if you age cheeses under less than ideal conditions (like in a home frig).
