About 24 million slices of bread are tossed in the garbage across the world every year. Researchers from New Zealand seek to squeeze this wastage with a new fermentation process that recycles stale bread into fresh loaves, ready for a resale.

The process restores the bread in just one day with the new product having a shelf-life of up to seven days at room temperature, notes Green Matters.

Dr. Aydin Berenjian, who conceived this idea, is still unsure about how many times stale bread can be recycled but hopes the process can make a change worldwide, writes Stuff
