Refrigerator Shelf Life of Bread (Until It Becomes Unhealthy)?
May 8, 2010 6:54 PM Subscribe
How long can one keep bread in the fridge? (If it matters, usually a Brownberry multigrain loaf.) StillTasty tells me merely that it's not recommended
, but doesn't offer a date. If I'm willing to accept
that refrigeration causes the bread to dry out and become stale, how long does it on average remain "good", i.e., not hazardous to eat?

The two answers I'm not looking for are:
(i) I already know freezing it or keeping it on the counter are the recommended ways to handle bread, but that's not what I'm asking with this question.
(ii) I also realize to look for mold, etc., but I'm not asking so much for symptoms to look for, as I am asking for the average shelf life.
