Why cheese is always kept in aluminium foil.. like when it is exposed after one day without being wrapped in aluminium, it starts to change color and also starts getting moldy and so on.. why is it the case? why aluminium? how does it works? can someone explain it to me please?

Try covering in waxed paper or plastic wrap and see if that makes a difference.
Some coverings are better than others.
Cheese has a water content and the covering prevents moisture release.

Some cheeses have a thick coating of wax or plastic for storage and preservation from the manufacturer.

Where are you storing your cheese?
