mold

So, when whole wheat bread goes moldy faster than other bread, I assume it's because such bread is more nutritious, having the germ and not being all starch.

TJ's NZ grass-fed cheddar cheese seems to go moldy faster than other cheddar cheese, and I'm not sure what to make of that. It should be healthier for *me*, because of the fat profile, but I don't expect yeast to care. Maybe it's moister? But I don't know why it would be.

To be fair, I don't know for sure that it does, it just seems that way. I guess I could buy two different cheddars at the same time and check.

when whole wheat bread goes moldy faster

Also, bread that is marketed as "whole wheat" typically has fewer preservatives, the better to appeal to health-conscious consumers.

Yeah, but I used to get white and wheat pita from Trader Joe's, neither of which has preservatives, and the latter would go moldy in like 3 days instead of 6. Similarly for my homemade bread: the more whole wheat flour, the faster the molding.
