I love the artisan multi grain bread and have been using it for awhile. However the last two loaves I have purchased have developed mold either before or shortly after opening (within 2 days). I have never had this happen before. Can you advise me as to the reason.

I've been having the same problem. We've been using Schär for about a year for all our bread needs, and lately the loaves have been molding within a day or two of being opened.

I Freeze my bread until I use it. Have never had any mold problems by doing this.. Just pop it in the toaster for different levels of browning or simply to thaw it.

I've had the same thing here too, my husband noticed that there's moisture inside the heat sealed pack, the last loaf I bought I cut the top off of the heat sealed bag and let it sit out for awhile then put it back in the outer plastic bag and put it in the fridge.

Open the inner bag, take out the slices you will eat. Press edges of inner bag together then twist the top of outer bag and seal with plastic closure. Place in refrigerator. Repeat each time you want slices
and it can last at least 4 days (sometimes longer).

hmmm I've had the same issue off and on. I just take it back to point of purchase with my receipt and they replace it or will refund my money! It's a shame since it's so expensive but the taste and texture is more than worth it. It doesn't taste dry like other gluten free brands. I just wrap mine up and stash it in a dark dry place in the cupboard.

I think this happens because Gluten Free Bread does not move as fast as regular "wheat" bread products do! I also freeze mine as soon as I get it to preserve the life of it, since I am the only one in the family eating GF. I take it out a sliced or two at a time and wrap it in damp (not wet!) paper towel and steam it in the microwave for about 15-20 sec. (depending on wattage power of your microwave). This makes the bread nice and moist. You can eat it that way or toast.

We are sorry to hear that the Schar product you purchased contained mold.

We pride ourselves on the high quality of our products and service so we appreciate you bringing this to our attention so we can get this resolved.

Since we do not use any preservatives in our products, once the package is open, we recommend you store in an air-tight container or bag and refrigerate to maintain the quality of the bread or rolls for 2-3 days.

If you feel that you will not eat the product within that time frame, we encourage you to freeze the product. Freezing will not affect the quality and will prolong the shelf life for up to 3 months.

If mold formed premature of the expiration date and the package was still sealed, the package may have been compromised in shipping from our warehouse to the distributor or from the distributor to the grocery store.

We will alert our Quality Assurance Department of this issue so the necessary measures can be taken as we further look into what might have caused a quality deviation in this instance.

I close the inner bag tightly close the putter bag tightly and put it in a zip lock bag in the refrigerator and my loafs last for at least a week and have never had mold!

Just a little tip for defrosting bread, and this is for any bread. If it's the whole bag un/opened I place one sheet of kitchen towels folded in half on a wooden board and leave the bread to defrost without any wet edges developing on any bread.

As soon as you open it has to go in the fridge. Mine has lasted as long as 2 weeks.

I have also had this problem with 3 of the past 4 loaves I bought. The date on the clip was 2/28/2017. Perhaps just this batch was bad. I know how to keep gluten-free bread fresh as I usually make my own, however, these were molding when I opened them.

I freeze mine as I don't eat bread very often. It's always good when I'm ready to use it. I also toast mine often.

I have had one mouldy loaf since I started buying it. It went straight back to the shop and I got a refund. I now double-check the loaf before I buy it.

I have had the same issue off and on. I get the best results in a freezer type storage bag and suck the air out and keep it in the crisper drawer no humidity in the fridge. Keeping for up to a week.

Hello YoliP! We are so glad that you enjoy our bread! We do have a flour but it is over in Europe and we do not have it anywhere here in the US.

I haven’t had a problem with mold. I keep my bread frozen then placed in fridge after opening. It doesn’t last a week because I love it! Would live to find the package of flour to make fresh bread! I’ve watched a YouTube video of someone making bread from Schar flour but have not found it for sale anywhere even online. Wish I could buy some!

my suggestions:
NEVER place bread in a cold place. that's what makes it go stale.
i keep mine double bagged and in a cool dry place. it lasts 3-4 days after opening.
for dryness microwave for 30 seconds with damp paper towel OR on the meat for the sandwich (this works great).

Keeping it in the fridge is the only way that works to keep this bread from going moldy after a few days.
