This reminds me of the saddest thing I've ever eaten. One day I was really hungry and all that we really had that seemed at least okay was bread so I took a slice and started eating it only to find it was kind of stale. I didn't want the stale bread but I still wanted the bread so I ran cool water over it then proceeded to eat the rest of the slice, never again will I do that. As for your question I have no idea.

This is what soup was MADE for! As a poor and starving student, I would buy a 20p box of Cuppa Soups and soak my stale bread in the nasty, salty, preservative-laden goodness. If there was mould on the bread, I would simply cut away the offending lifeforms and let them prosper in the bin. If the bread was 90% mould, then 10% of a slice was getting DIPPED.

You shouldn't do that. When mold forms, you should throw the whole thing away. Aspergillus flavus (mold) is responsable for the secretion of aflatoxin, which is highly carcinogenetic. That's how you get hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer).

Here's an article about that.

Try this with the next stale bread you find. Simplest yet gratest spanish dessert.

The thing I understand is meant to be done for stale bread is toasting. You did the opposite of that thing.

They have. There's Swedish knäckebröd (crispbread) and German Pumpernickel for example.

I have seen it in the US and in other places. The brand that you are looking for is Wasa.

That kind of reminds me of the German knacker-thrasher-apple-banger-horowitz-ticolensic-grander-knotty-spelltinkle-grandlich-grumblemeyer-spelterwasser-kurstlich-himbleeisen-bahnwagen-gutenabend-bitte-ein-nürnburger-bratwustle-gerspurten-mitz-weimache-luber-hundsfut-gumberaber-shönedanker-kalbsfleisch-mittler-aucher von Hautkopft of Ulm bread.

Wouldn't these have to just be loaded with preservatives in order to not go off?

I know about knäckebröd. It is more like a cracker than bread. It's very crunchy and hard. Cuts your mouth.

Yes it is. That's why it's so long lasting. If you want something more soft and moist, I'd recommend the pumpernickel.

I prefer my bread fresh daily now. The preservatives and stabilizing ingredients in mass market bread in the US changes the taste. Before I didn't believe it but now I can attest to the fact they are different.

Bread is one of those foods I don't like cheaping out on anymore; Yeah the super cheap storebrand bread with high fructose and whatnot is certainly more economical, it may even hold slightly longer, but what is the point of using bread as the vessel for other foods when that vessel itself tastes like shit

Because bread going bad depends on a lot of factors, mostly those that promote/hinder the proliferation of microorganisms. It's very hard to separate bacteria from bread in common bakery environments.

Well depending on what really constitutes "Bad" for you, I'd consider tossing it in the fridge.

If you keep it real airtight it's turn stale very slowly and will pretty much never mold. I've kept bread in my fridge for months straight and I'd say it honestly still tastes pretty good, it just starts to get a little hard and dry after a couple weeks. Which is something you can, at least somewhat, alleviate by tossing a couple pieces in the microwave for about ten seconds before you go to eat them.

Some people really hate stale bread, but it's the mold that grosses me out, might be worth a try at least to see if it's something that works for you.

Another option is see if you can't find a local bakery where you can buy the bread uncut and just get yourself a good bread knife. My aunt and uncle own one in my town and having the bread fresh cooked that day, and if you ask them not to cut if for you, leaving the the fluffier insides unexposed, it seems to cut down on the mold growth significantly. I've gotten a good 8 days un-refrigerated out of their white loaves.

Usually tastes better to, which is an added perk.

If it's sandwich bread try putting it in a freezer bag, a lot of store bags have holes in them, and the key to keeping it soft longer seems to be reducing the amount of air circulation around the bread.
