The new way to protect your cheese yet still allow it to ‘breathe’. This white cheese coating comprises food-grade aqueous wax emulsion and glycols with additional bactericidal agents to discourage unwanted mould growth.
Simply paint the coating over the top and sides of the cheese, allow to dry and then paint the base. Additional layers can then be applied to achieve the desired thickness.
The coating dries to a film that will ensure your cheese is protected from insects as well as bacteria, (especially from the cheesemakers hands!)
Since the white coating dries to a crystal clear totally transparent film, it is ideal for covering 'coated' cheeses to keep the outer material firmly bonded to the surface. This means that you can now produce those special cheeses you have seen that are coated with sage or vine leaves or peppercorns or nettles or...
Another use for this cheese coating is for the prevention of 'bleed' from cheese wax: simply paint a thin layer of coating over the cheese and allow to dry prior to waxing. The coating will stop the pigments in the wax penetrating the cheese and discoloring a significant outer layer of the cheese, so will eliminate a considerable amount of wastage and improve the overall appearance.
Available in 2lb packs. Other colors are available elsewhere in our shop - Yellow (for use in Gouda etc.) and Black coating for continental and specialty cheeses.
