Without preservatives, the shelf-life of bread stored at room temperature is generally three to four days . They’re what gives mold its color — white, yellow, green, gray, or black, depending on the type of fungus. Those with allergies to inhaled mold may also experience harmful reactions — including life-threatening anaphylaxis — if eating it in food. Still, this appears to be uncommon . Mold gives bread an off-flavor, may trigger allergic reactions and may cause harmful infections — particularly if you have a weak immune system. Therefore, you should never knowingly eat or smell it. Though you may only see a few spots of the fungus, its microscopic roots can spread quickly through porous bread. Therefore, don’t try to scrape off mold or salvage the rest of your loaf. Additionally, long-term, heavy exposure to some mycotoxins — including aflatoxin produced by certain species of Aspergillus — has been linked…

They said, “Caren White is the most Karen of Karens by definition.

Australia, we need to talk about Fairy Bread. So as Australians unite in celebration of all that is good about their country, Fairy Bread will be up there, right next to killer arachnids and waterslides. Part of the Fairy Bread enigma is that no one really knows where it came from. Its closest relative is hagelslag , a chocolate sprinkle sandwich topping from the Netherlands—and yet even the Dutch stop at rainbow food colouring. Robert Louis Stevenson’s 1885 book A Child’s Garden of Verses includes a poem of the same name, but the culinary Frankenstein who decided to turn an innocuous kids’ verse into an IRL snack is unknown. The same goes for The Wiggles, flip-flops with jeans, and using a Slip-n-Slide over the age of nine: all questionable until you consider the circumstances. Living on a semi-habitable island adrift in the southern hemisphere can make you a bit weird.…

The lactic acids in sourdough neutralise phytates in flour that when consumed in large amounts can prevent the body absorbing minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc in bread. They also slow the release of glucose into the bloodstream, lowering the bread’s glycemic index and preventing insulin spikes. The lactic acids also make gluten more digestible, and reduce the chances of gluten intolerance. A study published in December by Prof Marco Gobbetti , of the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, in Italy, found sourdough to be more digestible than bread made with baker’s yeast. Sourdough fermented for longer periods , and those who ate sourdough had higher amino acid concentrations in their blood. Once you have established a starter you need to feed and maintain it with additional flour and water. All-purpose, refined wheat flour can be used. Most enthusiasts prefer stoneground wholegrain flours because they contain more of the…

The clincher was the act’s strict provision that the amount of sugar in bread “shall not exceed 2% of the weight of flour included in the dough”. There can also sometimes be a thin but important line between food and aphrodisiacs. In February this year, a top adviser at the EU’s highest court argued that a Dutch sex shop could not apply foodstuff VAT rates to the libido-stimulating pills it sold. The appeal arose from a claim by Bookfinder Ltd that there were owed a refund from January/February 2004 to November/December 2005, when they paid VAT at a composite rate of 9.2%. They argued that they should instead have been subjected to 0% VAT. But Mr Justice O’Donnell was not persuaded and the appeal was dismissed. In a judgment published on Tuesday , the court ruled that the bread served at Subway, the US chain that hawks giant sandwiches in…

Panera, the bakery-cafe chain, rejoins Au Bon Pain in hopes its smaller footprint can help reach airports, train stations, and other locations. The suspect, who was killed in the exchange of gunfire and had two outstanding warrants, was identified as David Brian Evans. The restaurants have pledged to end a practice that prohibited workers from switching jobs within the individual chains. The fast-casual chain said it would eliminate high-fructose corn syrup from soda that it serves as part of an initiative to phase out artificial ingredients.

More answers could be coming soon, thanks to new citizen-science initiatives. McKenney, Madden and their colleagues run the  Wild Sourdough Project , which invites home bakers to experiment with flours and growing conditions and report their results. Similarly, Puratos has launched the  Quest for Sourdough , where anyone from newbies to professionals can register their sourdough. Those with particularly interesting or unique starters might be invited to submit them to Puratos’s sourdough library for further analysis. The Covid-19 pandemic has tightened our social circles and narrowed the scope of our lives in ways no one imagined just a year ago. But the lockdown also brought an unexpected solace: Everyone, it seems, turned to baking sourdough bread. Social media has been overflowing with photos of frothy sourdough starters — many of them named, like a family pet — and the fresh-baked loaves that result. And though peak sourdough may have passed,…

“When we all started social distancing a couple weeks ago, one of the first thoughts I had was, ‘I could make bread with Mom.’ The starter that my mom insists on using is my grandmother’s starter from years ago. Like, the early 1990s!” says Sara Huffman, a home baker from Virginia. “My grandmother was an avid baker and used to make bread every week for herself and her neighbors. She gave some of her starter to my mom who has been carting it around with her — through several moves, mind you — since then. My grandmother passed away in 2002, so my mom is determined to keep that starter alive and working.” When Locke and I spoke, Passover was imminent, and they pointed out how central bread is to that religious celebration. Bread is also central to Christian traditions, in the form of the bread broken for Communion, a…

Flat breads , the earliest form of bread, are still eaten, especially in much of the Middle East , Asia, and Africa. The principal grains used in such breads are corn , barley , millet , and buckwheat—all lacking sufficient gluten to make raised breads—and wheat and rye. Millet cakes and chapaties are popular types in India . Corn is used to make the small, flat cakes known as tortillas, important throughout much of Latin America; and in Brazil small cakes are made from cassava. Bread , baked food product made of flour or meal that is moistened, kneaded, and sometimes fermented. A major food since prehistoric times, it has been made in various forms using a variety of ingredients and methods throughout the world. The first bread was made in Neolithic times, nearly 12,000 years ago, probably of coarsely crushed grain mixed with water , with the resulting dough…
