About This Food

Description

Camembert is a traditional French cheese with a soft, creamy interior and a snowy white, edible rind. Its flavor is rich and earthy that gets more pungent with age.

Brie and Camembert taste almost identical; some say Camembert develops a more intense flavor. The bloomy rind on Camembert 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.

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

Molded cheese can produce an overgrowth of yeast in some individuals
