Tips
  • How long does packaged multi-grain bread last? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions — keep packaged multi-grain bread in a cool, dry area.
  • To maximize the shelf life of packaged multi-grain bread, keep tightly closed in original packaging and store at room temperature.
  • Properly stored, packaged multi-grain bread will last for about 5 to 7 days at normal room temperature.
  • How long does packaged multi-grain bread last in the fridge? Packaged multi-grain bread should ideally not be refrigerated, as the bread will dry out and become stale faster than at room temperature.
  • If you must refrigerate packaged multi-grain bread (eg, due to a lack of pantry storage space or very hot, humid room conditions), the bread will typically last for only about 3 to 4 days before getting stale.
  • Can you freeze packaged multi-grain bread? Yes, to freeze wrap tightly with aluminum foil or plastic freezer wrap, or place in a heavy-duty freezer bag.
  • Place packaged multi-grain bread in the freezer before the number of days shown for refrigerator storage has elapsed.
  • How long does a loaf of packaged multi-grain bread last in the freezer? Properly stored, it will maintain best quality for about 3 months, but will remain safe beyond that time.
  • The freezer time shown is for best quality only — packaged multi-grain bread that has been kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
  • How to tell if packaged multi-grain bread is bad or spoiled? The best way is to smell and look at the bread: discard any bread that has an off smell or appearance; if mold appears, discard the entire loaf.
