Materi
¼ kilo peach 1 loaf of bread 6 plastic containers 1 meter plastic cover

Procedure:
1.Cut the bread and peach into pieces. 2.Layer the bread into three separate containers, the same with the peach. 3.Be sure to cover each container with plastic and label them. 4. Leave the containers untouched in one week. 5. Observe the containers each day. 6. Record observation.

Results

Food rich in Vitamin C (peach)

Food rich in carbohydrates (bread)

We therefore conclude that our hypothesis was wrong because the molds grew faster in the bread which is rich in carbohydrate than the peach that is rich in Vitamin C.

We also speculated that the households should buy more Vitamin C rich foods like fruits, and consume immediately foods rich in carbohydrates such as breads because they are easily damaged.
