In the refrigerator and in plastic bags, this effect occurs to a greater extent, and the bread can be after 3-5 days and bad.

Bread a metal box or a specially coated Baker is suitable to be kept therefore, the bag better. Here, it lasts up to a week. The expert also recommends a bread pot made of earthenware or clay “, The open pores take in excess moisture and return it later to the bread. As a result, the bread remains fresh for a long time, there is no mold and through the lid there is no air circulation, which would contribute to the drying.“, explains Bernd Kütscher
