Cheese Wax – Wax for Cheese Makers 2lb

Categories: ,


The original protective coating that is simply melted prior to use. These food-grade waxes are provided in flat slabs with each slab providing sufficient wax to cover and protect many cheeses. To melt the wax, the simplest method is to use a ‘bains-marie’. Alternatively put the wax in a suitable basin and stand the basin in hot/boiling water until it becomes liquefied. Cheeses may then be painted using e.g. a pastry brush, or dipped in the molten wax to cover and protect the surfaces. Once coated, allow the cheese to cool by standing on some form of support e.g. a cake rack: once cool, invert the cheese and re-coat. Each slab weighs 2lb and is available here in a clear transparent form. It should be noted that the clear (transparent) wax is naturally a pale amber color when sold. However, unlike the yellow wax, it contains no pigments and will therefore melt to a produce a virtually colorless film – perfect for cheeses that have a surface coating.
