Would you make a sandwich with bread that has a small spot of mold?

Before everyone tosses their lunch, I DO remove the small bit before I eat it or feed it to my kids. I am not talking all over, don't even open the bag mold, just that bit on a corner. I was making toast this am and there was a small spot of mold on the last two pieces of bread and I pulled the bits off and made my toast.

  • I grew up with depression era grandparents... we threw away NOTHING. If it had a spot of mold, it was cut off and served. The mold on bread is actually pretty harmless, unless we're talking covered, which you stated we're not. I guess it depends a lot on how you were raised.

  • No,because its covered in mold you can't see just yet. The spot you see is just the biggest concentration of mold.

  • Never.... it can still make you very sick.

  • NO! Eating bread mold is not a good idea. While many kinds of mold are perfectly harmless, there are some extremely nasty molds out there that can make you very ill. Some of them are even quite common. Mold on bread isn't worth the risk, but that mold on cheese is fairly safe.

  • We just tear it off and eat the bread.  My dad would have had a fit if we wasted bread over one tiny spot of mold.  If it was really bad we tore it apart and tossed it out for the birds (and, yes, they eat it).

    When I worked in my college cafeteria we had to throw out the slices of bread with mold but kept the rest of the loaf.
