How to Tell if Babybel Cheese Has Gone Bad
The texture of Babybel cheese is usually a good sign of whether or not it has gone bad. When the cheese is too moist, it can develop mold and other issues. It is best to throw the cheese away in this case. If the cheese is too dry and hard, it may have gone bad as well. In this case, the cheese will be difficult to bite into and many people might notice an unpleasant odor.
Other signs that your Babybel cheese might have gone bad are if you notice white patches on the exterior of the wheel or if there are orange spots on the interior of the wheel. Some manufacturers also add mold inhibitors to prevent a strong odor from developing in the cheese but this is not always effective so sometimes even within a specific batch you’ll find cheeses that go bad faster than others due to poor design or manufacturing flaws.
Tips for Storing Babybel Cheese
To ensure that your Babybel cheese doesn’t spoil too quickly, you’ll want to follow these three steps: – Never place the cheese near a heat source. This can cause the wheels to dry out and go bad. If you need to store them in a warm area, keep them refrigerated. – Keep the surface of the cheese free from dust or any other contaminants and don’t allow it contact with any surfaces not intended for food products. – Make sure that your refrigerator is set at 40 degrees Fahrenheit (or below) and use an insulated container or ice packs if necessary to maintain the temperature. The cheeses should be stored on an upper shelf where they are less likely to come into contact with other foods.
