Statement of the Problem Situation
Molds grow on different foods at different rates. There are alsodifferent kinds of molds that certain pieces of food are prone to.Unfortunately, most molds grow very well at the sametemperatures that humans prefer. In addition, anyone who has cleanedout their refrigerator quickly realizes that temperatures close tofreezing are not cold enough to prevent mold growth and temperaturesthat are much warmer than humans prefer, like those of the tropics,will grow abundant quantities of mold. Therefore, it is not feasible tocontrol mold growth in our home environment through the control of temperature.
Purpose of the Study
To determine the type of food molds the fastest.
Questions to be answered
Which type of food molds the fastest in the same place; banana,milk, tasty bread, or cheese?
Importance of the Study
It is said that molds are dangerous and poisonous, it is importantthat we would find out the characteristics of the molds. We woulddetermine the food that is faster to grow molds. Because food is whatwe eat, and we get nutrients from them. After this study, we wouldknow how to minimize or prevent the growth of molds in our foods.
II. REVIEW OF RELATEDLITERATURE
The very first mention of mold and mold cleanup is in the Bible:Leviticus, Ch. 13, verses 1-46 (isolation or purification of people withskin diseases); verses 47-59 (mildewed clothing must be burned); and
