Product Questions And Answers
Q: What do I wrap the cheese in for storage in the refrigerator? Should I keep it in the original container it came in when purchased which has holes in top?
A: The cheese should be kept in its original container if it is kept unopened. Once opened it should be wrapped in cheese paper or, if that is unavailable, wax or parchment paper and placed back in its container.
Q: Questions: How long does it keep in the refrigerator? Can it be frozen for longer storage? Does freezing effect flavor and or texture?
A: The shelf life for this cheese is 35 days refrigerated, unopened. We would recommend against freezing it, as its consistency will be affected (soft cheeses are much more difficult to freeze than hard cheeses, partly because of their higher water and fat contents: when water freezes, it expands and then it contracts again upon thawing, changing the consistency and texture of the cheese). As a consequence, it is recommended to use previously frozen cheeses only for cooking.
