Another expert, nutritionist Mariyat Mukhina, emphasized that even bread that looks like it contains only a small amount of mold in a particular area is not suitable for food. Despite modest external traces of mold on the product, there is no doubt that it is completely affected by fungal spores. Additionally, Mukhina advised carefully inspecting the place where the bread is stored – it should be clean and dry.

The nutritionist said that fungal spores that appear on food can rise into the air, so if mold is found, spoiled food should be disposed of as carefully as possible, and the room should be thoroughly ventilated. Mukhina drew attention to the fact that spores from the air can penetrate the human body and his lungs.
