Bing webmaster tool says meta description is too long

Bing webmaster tool says post’s meta description is too long.

I checked the length with another tool, it is longer then 165 characters.

<meta name="description" content="In the most basic language , the process of breaking down the bonds of starch molecules in the presence of water and heat allowing the hydrogen bonding sites ( the hydroxy hydrogen and oxygen) to engage more water. This &amp;hellip;">
    <meta name="generator" content="Discourse 3.1.0.beta5 - version 486edb845c4d8b144c0ba28c6cfc0c5b1119d0b6">

So make it shorter? That’s your text, right?

no, discourse creates it from first post content.
