SALAMI & MOLD
Our old-world style, Italian dry salami is coated in an organic white mold as part of the dry-curing, preservative process. Like you would find in some fine cheeses, this mold is harmless and contributes to the unique flavor profile of our salami.
Due to the fact that our salami is vacuum sealed in plastic, the growth of this mold is inhibited, so you may not see any mold on the surface when you first open your salami.
As it is exposed to air, though, you may begin to see a white mold develop (the mold may also be green or dark colored, which is fine). Don't be scared! This mold is beneficial and prevents harmful bacteria from spoiling the salami. It is totally edible, but will usually be removed along with the outer casing, which should be removed anyways before you enjoy your salami.
