Bread with mold: throw away or cut and eat?
The sad reality is that the bread in the house grows moldy. Whatever you do, from this scourge is very difficult to get rid of. Here are some who think about what will happen if you eat moldy bread, after removing the affected area with fungus.
Understand this issue.
Everyone who has a breadbox at home is well aware of such a problem as moldy bread. Here you go, dear reader, to the store, bought fresh bread there, and after a couple of days you wonder: neither the sanitary and hygienic norms were violated in the house, nor was there really any kind of “bread conspiracy” of producers that makes people buy bread , as often as possible. On the basis of all this fuss, the question immediately arises of what to do. Perhaps, if you cut the mold, the bread is still edible?
A very short and categorical answer to this question is no. If this statement is not enough, we will explain why. When black or green mold appears on the bread (less often pink, it is a sign of diseased wheat) - this is evidence that the flour product is affected by harmful spores.These disputes are very small, and in fact, mold infection affects the bread much stronger and larger than we think. The mold spreads almost evenly. That “forest” that a person sees on a loaf is only the tip of the iceberg. Circumcision of the affected area will not help.
It is important to understand that the bread with mold is not an elegant Roquefort, created using a special technology, but a spoiled product. The simplest and innocuous, than the consumption of bread with mold can be fraught with - this is food poisoning. It is not worthwhile to treat it lightly, because poisoning can turn into serious complications. Symptoms of poisoning occur within 4-6 hours, and its severity (as a rule) depends on the amount eaten and the concentration of fungal spores in the consumed product.
The use of moldy foods increases the risk of developing cancer pathologies. Finally, there is mold allergy, which can lead to a very sad outcome if you eat a fungus-affected product. Remember also that heat treatment does not help in the fight against bread mold.
