Hi Blair.  Rinds are protection for the cheese.  Spices like paprika or even rosemary are for flavoring, color and protection.  A dusting or rubbing of ash is used on cheeses to balance the acidity as the ash is alkaline. Remember, if the rind is wax, plastic or fabric…don’t eat it.  When enjoying cheese, take a bite of the inside (the paste) and with your second bite take a little nibble of the rind.  If you like it, eat it.  Enjoy!

Wrapping the cheese in wax paper or parchment keeps the cheese from smothering in plastic wrap.  These protect the cheese from loosing moisture.  Also to protect the cheese from other foods in your refrigerator. Enjoy!
