Safe storage of breadFeatured science projectScience project video

Conclusion

The hypothesis that  bread mold will grow more quickly in warm and damp environments is proven to be true. Mold will grow quickly on bread in humid and warm conditions. Bread should be kept in dark, dry and cool places for it to last longer. Bread can also last longer if stored in the fridge or in airtight containers. Adding a small amount of edible chemicals like acetic acid or prop-ionic acid to the bread will also help to preserve it longer.

 Mold is a nuisance when it comes to storing food, but it has its usefulness too. Molds help in the decomposing of decaying animals and plants. Penicillium is used produce medication. 

Also consider

This science fair project may be repeated, this time, by baking the bread at high temperatures again before starting the science fair project?

Modify the science project experiment,  using different types of food like biscuits or cooked rice.
