    Default Is Moldy Food Dangerous?

    Emma Deangela
    DECEMBER 17, 2017

    It has certainly already happened to many of us to open our food pantry and find some food covered in mold. But not all of us will have reacted the same way. Some will have thrown the food away and some will only have removed the moldy part and eaten the rest. It’s not always easy to know when it’s safe to eat moldy food and when it’s better to simply discard it. The topic may be a bit confusing as some foods are actually produced with mold and have been consumed safely for centuries.

    I'm the type that removes the moldy part and consumes the rest, I consider it mother nature's way of telling you when it's ready to eat or else at it's peak. Love blue cheese, never got sick.

    I'm just the opposite: would never, ever knowingly eat anything with mold on it. Don't have any rational reason for avoiding moldy food....just get nauseated at the thought. Lol. PS the link takes you to an article about sugar cravings & hangovers. Oh well....

    Link corrected: http://diet-sage.com/health-news/is-...food-dangerous The good news about moldy food is that the easier it gets moldy, the more likely it's REAL, WHOLE, and/or ORGANIC food.

    Definitely agree here, corollary: any food such as a McDonalds burger that you can leave out on the counter for 2 weeks or more and does not get moldy, is not real food or good for you and is much more likely that it will kill you in the long run.

    For me it depends on the food. I tend to break or cut off the moldy part when it comes to raspberries, or cheese. Moldy bread (GF) gets thrown out.
