Can you put moldy food in bokashi?Updated 4 months ago

Yes, you can put moldy food in a Bokashi bin. 

Bokashi composting is an anaerobic process that ferments organic waste, including moldy food, without producing foul odors. 

The effective microorganisms (EM) in the Bokashi bran help prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and speed up the fermentation of moldy food items, making it a suitable method to compost such waste. 

However, it's important to ensure that the bin is sealed properly to maintain an anaerobic environment and to mix the contents regularly with Bokashi bran to facilitate the fermentation process.
