Have you ever thought about the mystery of moldy bread? Is it possible that the way it was stored or treated is the cause? Maybe it is because of the flour that is used?
We like to eat bread. It satisfies our hunger without sacrificing taste or health. However, not all bread is the same. It is known that stains and mold can appear after baking.
Fungi such as mold can thrive on eatable items. It poses a significant health risk if it ends up in bread. If you eat moldy bread, you can experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach upset and bloating. If not treated, these symptoms can lead to severe dehydration, malnutrition and even death.
Even if the suspicious coating is only visible on the surface, moldy bread should be thrown away. Simply cleaning the moldy areas is not enough, because the bread may already be completely splattered with invisible fungal spores.
So, if the bread already has visible mold stains, it can be said with certainty that it is bad. Eating it can lead to serious illness and even complications, that's why you shouldn't risk it.
Just follow a few storage rules to keep your bread from going moldy so quickly:
Keep your bread in a clean, dry and cool place.
To prevent it from "sweating," pack it loosely and airy without packing it too tightly.
Regularly remove bread crumbs and occasionally use vinegar to clean the storage container and bread bin.
