About This Food

Description

Love it or hate it, Brie is the classic French cheese.

The bloomy rind on Brie results from Penicillium Candidum, a white mold applied to the surface. The mold produces enzymes which ripen the cheese from the outside in. Ripening occurs in just a matter of weeks.

Brie has a rich, earthy mushroom flavor changes from mild when young to pungent with age. It has a soft, creamy interior with snowy white, edible rind.

Because cheese is essentially milk that is condensed it is important to choose brie cheese made from organic milk, free from hormones

Molded cheese can produce an overgrowth of yeast in some individuals.
