is white stuff on wheat bread mold or not cuz someone told me its normal?

People I live with said that white stuff on wheat bread is not mold, its just the way the bread is. Its like half a ring shaped of this white stuff. I threw some out and they were mad and said it wasnt mold but I thought it was. Now I want to eat some of the bread but want to make sure they know what they are talking about before I do.

  • There is a white stuff that is normal on bread. It looks like flour. That is okay to eat. There is also a white mold that grows on bread but it has more of a mold texture and looks a little different.

    I think if you are unsure, err on the side of caution and just throw it away or cut off those pieces with the white.

  • I’m 69 years old and have been eating bread that long. When you see that white stuff, it is about to turn to mold. I have never purchased a loaf of bread or hot dog/hamburger buns with flaky flour on it. Like the writer in this site, throw it away when in doubt.

    Um, assuming you speak of white bread dough or wheat bread dough, I have always found that white bread dough bakes the nicest in a mold. For health reasons, I sometimes bake 50% white flour/50% wheat flour bread in molds. This gives you the health benefits of whole grain flour with the more artistic properties of refined white flour. Why are you in such a hurry? Hahaha.

  • What kind of bread is it? If its a regular loaf of prepackaged bread from the supermarket, then white stuff on it is mold. If it’s homemade or an artisan bread from a bakery then there is a possibility that the white stuff is a design in either seeds or flour or cornstarch or some other ingredient that was put there intentionally for decoration.

  • depends, often bread with have spots of flour on the outside that looks a lot like mold. Take a really close look at it under good lighting. If it looks fuzzy then its likely mold. If it looks more powdery then its probably just flour.

  • It’s flour. I worked in an industrial bakery. They have to coat the loaves with flour so it doesn’t get stuck in the machinery.

    It comes out of the BIG oven in pans that hold five loaves of bread each and then they have this cool suction cup thing that pulls the bread out of the pan. It then rides on conveyor belts for about an hour before it goes to the slicing machine.

    The oven cooks up to 55 loaves of bread per row and I think there are about 25 rows in the oven at any time.

  • If it easily dusts off then it is most likely flour from the baking process. If it stays on after the dusting attempt then it is the precursor of the next stage of mold, being that lovely blue or green which we are all so familiar with 🙂 When mine doesn’t pass the dust test it makes it to the garbage can.
