How do you know if bread has gone bad?

Title says it all.

I want hotdogs but I don't know if the buns are good. I don't see mold on them so does that mean they're fine? They're still soft, not hard or stale.

The mold test is usually my yes/no decision maker.

Alright, guess they're good then. Even though they have been in the cupboard for a while.

Those buns are probably loaded with preservatives. If you don't see a fur coat on there, it's fine.

+1. Also, if you did accidently ingest, green/blue mold growing on bread products won't hurt you.

It will, however, hurt the mold.

Depending upon amount ingested, and one's current immune system tolerance, not much, except for some "squirrel-iness." Take it as you wish, gf. ;-)

I make a sandwich for lunch until my whole wheat loaf is gone. The day before I see the mold the bread tends to taste a little off. I have yet to get sick on the bread and quite a few times I am half way through the sandwich when I notice the white specs. That doesn't stop my lunch. Now I freeze the loaf so it is a not an issue.

One more reason to eat whole wheat bread, mold visibility.

YTrue enough! Actually, you will have ingested a small amount of natural penicillin! Druidic Celts used to pack wounds that were getting infected with bread molded with Blue Green mold to combat infection and by all accounts, it was very effective!

People have been eating moldy bread for centuries- probably millenia. Ain't gonna hurt ya, although you probably don't want to go out of your way to eat it. Just discard the moldy sections and you'll be fine.

And Alexander Fleming found that a bit of penicillium mold from bread that had contaminated a staph culture killed the staph. The rest is history.

Ooops...

Oh well, it tasted pretty normal, and I'm not sick so I guess they weren't that bad.

i'd eat moldy bread before i'd eat fresh hotdogs.
we know what bread is made of...

hotdogs?
fly lips and a-holes are just the first two ingredients.

i'd say the same goes for spam, but last time i mentioned something bad about spam... well, it wan't pretty.
