fungus in white bread
Need help in my project about fungus in bread. :confused:

Try measuring the amounts of fungus that grow on different types of bread over a certain amount of time.

just trying to help
good idea Ravencraft or little scientist you could do a toasted and non toasted bread and different spreads and see which has the most amount of mould. Note: becarful of the temp. as mould likes to grow in warm area. :)

try growing some of our own fungus.. But be very careful

Well, maybe u could try different types of breads and baked goods, i.e. white bread, wheat bread, bagels, bagguettes, croissants, dinnerrolls, bisquets, toasted white bread, etc. I hope you find what you're looking for! :)

that is a good site Tamthebest... any way you know moist and warmth are the best place where mould would like to grow... :D

Fungus in bread
Mold cannot make its own food and so it has to use the food made by other plants.
Mold is made up of tiny threads that cover the the food it uses.
The mold you can sometimes see growing on bread uses the starch in the bread.

For mold to grow it needs warmth, moisture and a shady place.
When the skin of fruit has been damaged you will often find that mold grows.
Mold is killed when heated to boiling point - one way to preserve fruit is to heat it in tight cans or jars.
Mold cannot grow at temperatures below freezing - another way to preserve food is to keep it frozen.

Hope that helped , Good Luck! :)

or brainygirl dried fruit/ food could also prevent mould... well the frezzing point well it just frezzes the mould if it is already moulded... and good work guys keep it up...
