White Mould Cheeses

As the name suggests, white mould cheeses age from the exterior to the interior of the cheese; a process that contributes to the maturation and character of the cheese. When cut, a fully matured cheese is creamy in texture (in comparison with the slightly chalky texture of an immature cheese) and develops wonderful flavours.

Covering the exterior is a velvety white rind, grown from a mould such as Penicillium candidum. It takes about a week for the mould to grow on the surface of the cheese after which it is wrapped and left in controlled conditions to further mature.
