I was recently watching a video from the International Space Station (Making a peanut butter sandwich in space), and I noticed he mentioned that a tortilla kept in an oxygen-free environment could last up to 18 months. Impressive, but it got me thinking: Why would some foods ever spoil if kept in a state where molds would not be able to grow? Would it be that other micro-organisms in things like the moisture present in the food eventually take their natural toll? Just a curious thought I had while watching through these awesome ISS videos.
Thanks for any answers!
