Cheese rind

This is the cheese's natural packaging. Some rinds of semi-hard cheeses are not suitable for consumption as they have been treated with natamycin, a fungicide. The consumption of untreated cheese rind is always a matter of personal taste. The rind on cheese types with a surface of blue and white edible mould or red cultures can be consumed. It generally adds to the special taste of the cheese.
