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 weighs1 kg and is available in 5 colour choices. The pigment used in the wax has FDA approved status.

Store all paraffin waxes in a cool place, away from direct sunlight.
