Did you know how long does your bread lasts?


Typically made from wheat (or alternative grains), yeast, and other ingredients, bread stays fresh for only a short period before it starts to go bad. It may even grow mold and become unsafe to eat, so it’s helpful to know how to keep it fresh for as long as possible.

Many factors influence bread's shelf life, which is the length of time it lasts before starting to go bad. The shelf life of bread kept at room temperature ranges from 3-7 days but may vary depending on ingredients, type of bread, and storage method.

Refrigeration can increase the shelf life of both commercial and homemade bread by 3-5 days. Frozen bread may last up to 6 months.
Although some types of mold may be safe to consume, it's impossible to tell which fungus is causing the mold on your bread. Therefore, it's best not to eat moldy bread, as it could harm yourself. Moldy bread may produce mycotoxins, which are invisible poisons that are unsafe to eat.

If you want to reduce food waste, you may be wondering how to avoid discarding old bread. And here are some ideas to help prevent bread waste before it's moldy:
 - Make homemade crackers, bread pudding, breadcrumbs before it's a best-by date.       
- Properly seal and store any leftover bread in your freezer.                         
- If you see moisture inside the bread packaging, use a clean towel to dry it before resealing the bag. This will help prevent mold.                                   - If you don't want to freeze your bread, calculate the amount of bread that you can eat in a week.                                                                 
- Keep your bread dry and well-sealed.
