Watch what happens when you soak bread in water for two weeks

It’s never amusing to see mould on bread. Unless, of course, it’s on a timelapse video.

The following clip from YouTube channel ‘GPhase’ shows just what happens when a slice of bread is left in water for 16 days. The obvious result would be mould, but the timelapse shows the surprisingly beautiful process of growing fungus.

For the first two days, the pastry still looks like it could be edible – albeit soggy. But on the third day, mould can already be seen growing, and by the end of the first week, it’s way well past its expiration date. By the end of the two-week experiment, you can’t even recognise the food item anymore.

Gross but highly-amusing!
