Does different types of flour affect the growth of mold on different breads? : LUSENET : FAQ : One Thread

I'm doing a science project on the growth of mold on three different types of bread, wheat, white, and rye. I have observed that the mold on the rye grew the fastest. Next, was the white and then came the wheat. I have noticed that they all contain the same preservatives but different types of flour. The white and the rye contain bleached enriched wheat flour and the wheat contains stone ground whole wheat flour. What are the differences between the bleached and stone ground flour? Could these differences have anything to do with how fast the mold grew and the kinds of mold that grew? Thanks for your time.
