Preventing Moisture Buildup When Storing Cheese

I stored some cut up cheese chunks in a vacuum sealed bag for a week. There were droplets of water inside the bag in a few places (minimal). Do you suggest I place a paper towel in with the cheese chunks to prevent mold from building up due to excessive humidity? How much paper?


Thanks, (...and thanks to Harlean for her help with other queries.)

I have found the best way to store cheese to prevent moisture, is to wrap it first in good old fashioned wax paper, and then in foil. If the wax paper appears soft or damp, just replace it when you put it away again.

I wrap my cheese in wax paper before I freeze it or do anything else to it...seems to be working well for me...might be worth a try for you...deb

I keep my cheese in tupper ware (tight tops) and then either place a couple of pieces of cube sugar or a cap (about catsup bottle size) packed with brown sugar. replace when soft.

I have no trouble with mold with this method.
