American scientists have brought us a new technological breakthrough- 60 day bread! Imagine that, having bread that lies around in the house for almost 2 months without going bad. Today, regular breads start going mouldy by day 10, so how is this possible?
Scientists at Texas Tech University are using a microwave like machine to zap out the “Rhizopus stolonifer,” a fungus that leads to mould. And since this fungus feeds off the evaporating water that is produced by bread sitting in plastic, having no fungus, means having no mould. This breakthrough was created by an American company called Microzap.
While the idea of this bread is very innovative, the taste and habit changing of consumers might be harder to innovate. As far as we know, the technology works only on bread.
