Sourdough resists spoilage?

racer x | Feb 28, 2012 09:46 AM

I bought some Pepperidge Farm sourdough bread on a whim about 6 weeks ago. (I happen to like sourdough, but I eat very little bread and before now never bought any sourdough for home.)

The sell-by date was a month ago. There are a few slices left; the bread still isn't even slightly moldy. A non-sourdough loaf would have turned weeks ago.

Is resistance to spoilage a well-known characteristic of sourdough bread?

(Or is there something about this particular brand? Or is this just a fluke of this particular loaf?)

Want to stay up to date with this post?
