any bread mold experts?

i've had half a loaf of white bread in my truck for about 3 weeks, and i just remembered today, and surprisingly there's no mold on it at all! in fact, it's fairly fresh... what the hell? i cant get a loaf to last 3 weeks in my house, why did it last longer in my truck? it wasnt even sealed well, just kinda folded over sitting in the back seat out in the open... weird, no?

Re: any bread mold experts?

if i were bread mold i wouldn't live in akansas either [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] just kidding !! actually i think they are putting some sort of perservative in bread now to retard the growth of mold spores . maybe there might not have been any spores that made contact with the bread when you opened it .just out of curiosity, did you eat the bread ? he he he .

Re: any bread mold experts?

YES, i did eat it! the end pieces were kinda stale, but the center ones werent bad, so why not? [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

i was wondering if it had something to do with humidity, or maybe this cold weather we've been having? (relatively cold... low-30's at night, mid-50's highs)

since outside air gets circulated so much more than interior air, it could just be that the mold is WAY more concentrated in indoor air than outdoor air, which seems reasonable to me. dunno, just thought it was interesting [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: any bread mold experts?

Was it white bread ? Its much more resistant to mold than other types . Mold needs certain conditions to flourish . I think when bread is kept in the house in the same place all the time the mold spores are already there and when you open and close the bag its already began the process . First time you open the bag its begun . In your truck there probably are no spores present . Thats just my guess [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: any bread mold experts?

Re: any bread mold experts?

Last week I found a loaf in my desk drawer at work fom early September that didn't have any mold on it. It wsa still nice a soft too. the stuff at my house gets eaten before it molds so i have no reference for how long it takes to mold at home.

Re: any bread mold experts?

Kind of opposite of bananas. You buy them green and a few days later you have to throw them out.

I would have just thrown it out.

Re: any bread mold experts?

well since you brought this up....

the bread is still not moldy! it's been sitting on the counter since my original post, not even really folded over, and it's just got a tiny dot of green mold! WOW, superbread! It's Kroger Buttermilk Enriched bread, if anybody wants to get ahold of this superbread [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] It must've picked up some mold fighting antibodies while in my truck and brought them with it into the house, that's all i can figger [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: any bread mold experts?

hey JEEPZILLA,
lets say we always have the bread in the same spot in the cupboard.....right. now how do i get rid of the spores in the cupboard so that i can have the bread last longer? should you just empty it and lysol once a month? would a 10/1 mixture of water and bleach do it? what would you do?

Re: any bread mold experts?

Keeping the bread in the cold definitely helps. At my apartment we keep the bread in the fridge all the time. A loaf will last us at least a month before it starts to mold. If it doesn't get ate first.
