How to Store Cheese

Welcome to the Abeego Test Kitchen where we explore food storage methods to understand and preserve the life of our fresh living food. Abeego is the original beeswax food wrap that breathes. Reusable for a year, Abeego keeps food fresh for longer than ever imagined.

 

Enjoy sharp cheddars, rich Bries & swoon-worthy Swiss for weeks. Abeego food wrap allows cheese to breathe while it keeps odors under wraps, wicks away excess moisture, and hinders its natural aging process - much like nature's own cheese rind!
Cheese is alive and it needs to breathe. Rescue your cheese from airtight packaging and wrap and give it the life it deserves with Abeego food wrap. 
Let's dig in. 
 

HOW TO STORE HARD CHEESE WITH ABEEGO FOOD WRAP
Double wrap hard cheese in a Large Abeego with the 'tuck tight' method to slow down its natural moisture loss. Then, store it in a humid part of your fridge, such as the cheese or vegetable drawer, and crank up the humidity if you have the option.


HOW TO STORE SOFT CHEESE WITH ABEEGO FOOD WRAP
Protect soft cheese in a Medium Abeego to hold its shape. Wrap goat cheese like a bonbon and cushion brie with firm and gentle folds.

Wrapped in Abeego, you'll never question how to store cheese again. 


MORE TIPS TO STORE CHEESE WITHOUT ABEEGO

    • Use the cheese paper that your cheesemonger or specialty store uses. Always avoid plastic - it's airtight and traps the gases that cheese naturally releases, resulting in moisture and bacteria growth. Sweaty cheese? It's an airtight wrap problem.
    • Keep cheese in the crisper, cheese drawer, and toward the top of the fridge. Cheese doesn’t like to get too cold.
    • Don’t store cheese on the door. The frequent opening and closing can create an unstable environment.  
    • Instead of slicing from the same side every time, consider eating your way around the cheese. This way, the whole block will age at the same rate.
