We were eating brie cheese last night, and someone asked if the rind was edible.
I was tempted to say "yes, it's not plastic". But then I realized that while it doesn't look like plastic or wax, I really have no idea what it's made of.
Is it chemical? Is it organic? Maybe fungus or bacteria? In that case, what kind (and would eating too much of it be unhealthy)?
I've seen the question Are you supposed to eat the rind of Brie cheese?, but none of the answers mention what the rind is made of.
