|White Flour Bread|
o A staple since prehistoric times, bread is made from
grains that have been ground into flour or meal, moistened and kneaded into a
dough, and then baked.|
o Except Asia, where the preferred grain is rice, bread has long been a world wide staple.
o The discovery of fermentation is attributed to the Egyptians, who also invented baking ovens.
o Bread is high in complex carbohydrates and a good source of B vitamins.
o Whole grain bread is higher in protein, has twice the fiber, and generally has more vitamins and minerals than white bread.
o Grains, seeds, nuts and fruit can be added to bread for flavor and texture.
o Unleavened bread (e.g. matzo) uses no leavening and therefore is quite flat.
o A yeast batter bread uses strenuous beating instead of kneading to the same end.
o Made with a mixed wheat and rye dough, the light rye breads are popular in the United States.
o Dark rye breads are common in Europe.
