Definition: During the cheesemaking process, the outside of some soft cheeses are coated with Penicillium candidum. The rind that forms is white, soft and sometimes a little fuzzy. This type of rind is called "bloomy". These cheeses first begin to ripen on the outside and the middle of the cheese is the last part to ripen and become soft and runny.
Examples:Camembert and Brie are bloomy rind cheeses
