What Causes Bread to Mold?

Answer

Bread mold is a kind of fungus that is commonly found on bread surfaces. Mold needs certain environmental conditions to grow and flourish these are warmth, moisture and oxygen. Mold appears on the bread surface as a windblown spore. With adequate moisture and nutrients from the bread, this spore sprouts and grows hair like structures on the bread surface. Once the mold attains a particular growth with paint brush like structures, it starts producing fruiting structures. These structures, sometimes called conidia, contain spores that are blown by wind and spreads to other bread surfaces.
