Moldy Bread
 
So I bought a loaf of bread at a store the other day. Apparently they don't do a good job of rotating out the stock because the bread was out of date when I bought it, and beyond out of date today. Now, normally this brand of bread is okay plenty of days beyond the date with little problems.

Except this time.

Today I noticed a spot of mold on a couple slices of the bread. So I shrugged took out the two slices of bread with the mold on it, the two-or three slices of the loaf from their to the end of the loaf and three slices behind the mold spot. And made myself a sandwich with a few slices of the remaining loaf before throwing the rest out. I'm eating the sandwiches now.

Am I doing something stupid?

The bread tastes fine, maybe a bit on the stale side but not bad.

Am I going to be hunched over a toilet in 20 minutes?

If it's rye you could be in for a pleasant trip. Or a bad one.

But it's okay. Science to the rescue!

I've eaten bread from a loaf that's gotten moldy. I just don't eat the slices with visible mold on them.

I've not died, gone to the hospital, or had a hallucinatory trip.

As far as I know.

You'll be ok, but why bother unless you have absolutely nothing else to eat at home? Old bread tastes like shit anyway.

Regular white bread.

I had my heart set on peanut butter and jelly. :(

Anyway, it tastes okay. A little dried out but not bad.

There's a good chance that you ate mold but that doesn't mean you're going to die or something. The thing is, by the time you can see visible mold it's probably all over the place anyway.

From what I've heard, slicing moldy bread won't keep you safe due to the way spores spread as the bacteria is still there. However, if you see mold on cheese, because it's denser, it's easier to slice off the mold as it won't easily spread.

mold on cheese is half the flavor!!

You'll be fine. Bread, cheese, just cut off the objectionable bits and you're fine.
I keep my bread in the fridge to help extend the lifespan.

It's mainly high water content food that you should throw the whole thing out rather than cutting off the bad bit. If it's high water content the mould spores are more likely to have spread through the whole thing, though they won't yet be visible. Sour cream, tomatoes etc..

Every time I throw something out because there's a bit of mould on the end I think, "if this was in an era of war rations I wouldn't be throwing this out."
