I have studied the process of mold on bread. White bread molds the fastest, followed by Italian, then pumpernickel. Wheat is next. And finally rye. The reason is...because of all the extra vitamins, mold inhibitors, minerals, dough improvers (to adjust handling properties), and yeast in the white bread. They are added to the original dough to increase shelf life. The speed varies according to the place it is stored. For example: If kept outside without any type of covering, it will mold in approximately six days. If kept in ice box, it will not mold for up to five years. Good luck with your project. E-mail with your grade!
