What bread molds faster between the White Bread, Wheat Bread, and Sour Dough bread?

This must be the most popular Scince project for this year.

I am currently working on the same Science project with my nine year old son. We are testing to see which type of bread (Wheat, White or Sourdough) will mold quickest. We are doing this in different locations (pantry, refrigerator and bathroom). We predicted that the Wheat bread in the bathroom would mold the quickest because of the damp location and usually your darker breads will mold quickest.

So far we were right. The wheat bread molded in the bathroom first. Unfortunately ,I can't remember the site I visited that gave me give me the information on the wheat bread. Now I know that sourdough will be the last to mold if it even molds because of the acidity level. A good site to visit for sourdough questions would WWW.sourdough.com.

We are on day 17 of the project and there is still no mold on any of the bread in the refrigerator but there is mold on the white bread in the pantry.

Good Luck

P.S. Let me know if you find a good site for wheat bread.
