Is bread mold a parasite or a saprophyte and why?
Bread mold i not a parasite. It is a saprophyte. Parasites live off of living organisms and saprophytes live off of decaying organic matter. Saprophytes are of the Kingdom Fungi. They release digestive enzymes into the immediate environment witch breaks down organic matter so the fungi can absorb the digested food through their cell wall. Bread is non living organic matter.

Saprophytic is another way to say decomposers. Parasitic bacteriaparasitize other organisms while they feed off of their insides.Saprophytic (decomposers) bacteria feed off of… dead organisms andthis is extremely important for the cycle of soil nutrients andalso for many plant roots.
SAPROPHYTIC NUTRITION : . Feeding on dead & decaying matter such as dead leaves in the soil or rotting tree trunk is callled saprotrophic nutrition.. Eg : . Neothia(b…ird's net or orchid) . Monotropa (Indian pipe ) . PARSITIC NUTRITION: . Feeding by living in or on organisms (host) is called parasitic nutrition.. Eg : . Cuscuta(Amer bail). Loranthus .
saprophyte feeds on something dead, parasite feeds on something living.

Saprophytic Nutrition - Many organisms absorb fluid food through the body surface. Bacteria & fungi flourish on dead & decaying organic matter of both plant & animal origin..… Parasitic nutrition - In this type of nutrition organisms take food from the body of other organisms called hosts.
They are saprophytes because they live on other decaying matter for their food
According to botany the parasite live on live plant. when the plant dies parasite also will dies. but the saprophyte though the plant dies it will live.

No, it is a saprobe.

None of the above :) Bread mold is heterotrophic, meaning realize on other organisms for food. (compare to definitions below) parasitic: organism that feeds on another living… organism saprophytic: organism that feeds on dead matter autotrophic: organism that makes its own food
In Food Science
They are parasites b/c they feed off of the plant while it is living and benefit at its expense.
Saprophyts are not parasites as they take food from dead ordecaying orgnisams. Whereas parasites take food from livingorgnisams
In Mycology or Fungi
Correct, bread mold is a saprophyte. It consumes dead organic matter.
