Whole Wheat Bread Easy Recipe

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Whole wheat bread made from 100% whole-wheat flour is higher in fiber, vitamins, and minerals than breads made from refined wheat.Most commercially made breads labeled as whole wheat in the US, actually have very little whole grain wheat. They’re mostly made from white flour with caramel color added to give the illusion that they have more whole wheat than they actually do. 

Humans have been baking bread for thousands of years. Wheat was domesticated in the Fertile Crescent, an area in the Middle East, known as one of the cradles of civilization ,on area where farming first emerged.

You could say bread gave rise to society as we know it today. It played a key role in the  formation of human society. As cultivation spread from the Middle East towards Europe, North Africa,and then Asia it led to a more structured society, towns were created, and a less nomadic lifestyle was possible. This is turn led to more shophisticated and organized forms of society. In the Amercas this also happened with maize and in China with rice.

Up until the nineteenth century bread in Europe was made with extremely harmful ingredients like chalk,sawdust, alum, plaster and even clay. That came to an end in the late 1800’s with the passing of the Food Adulteration Act in Britain. It was however more difficult in the United States as different states have different regulations for bread making.

Bread baking was industrialized in the early twentieth century. Whole grain breads were discovered to have higher nutrional content in that time period as well.
