Cheese Wax is specifically made for coating cheeses. It helps prevent unwanted mold growth while retaining moisture in the aging cheese. This wax is pliable and will not become brittle as will pure paraffin wax.

  • Available in Black
  • Contains: Cheese Wax, a formulation of paraffin and microcrystalline wax, and food grade coloring (FD&C Lake Colors).
  • Weight: 16 oz (1 lb) (Please note, weights are approximate and may vary +/- 10%.)
  • Yield: One pound will wax approximately 12-20 cheeses when brushed on. If the dipping method is used you will need at least 5 pounds (2.25 kg) of wax.

Safety Note

It is safest to melt wax in a double boiler so that it is not subject to direct flame. NEVER leave melting wax unattended. Wax can explode at high temperatures.
