Bread...is it fresh?

I don't know if this is the case in other countries, but in the USA the color of the ties on the bread bags indicate which day it was baked. Write this down and carry it in your purse so you will always know:Monday--Blue Tuesday--Green Thursday--Red Friday--White Saturday--Yello

Oh this sounds like a wonderful idea. My husband use to bake his own bread, with a bread machine I must add, but since he was diagnosed with diabetes he had to stop eating bread altogether. The only bread he is allowed now is rye and he detest it.

In the Philippines we only have the expiration date indicated on the package. From what I observed with the regular sandwich bread that I buy from the supermarket, they allot about 7 days shelf life. I make sure that I get it on the first or second day. Otherwise, I won't buy because I don't like the taste and the texture of the bread when it is already older than 2 days.
