Bread is generally made from wheat flour though other types of bread are possible. Wholemeal bread is the healthiest and has the highest protein content. Most westerners buy bread but bread can also be taked at home. You can add many types of seeds, soya flour (cooked pulses probably, I haven't tried it yet) and many other ingredients to home made bread. Wheat flour and yeast can raise up to a quarter of its weight in other ingredients without preventing it rising properly.
You can bake your own bread, if you're inexperienced and bread doesn't come out well you don't need to throw it away. You can research how to make bread pudding or other ways of using bread in the Internet. If you don't feel like baking your won bread there are plenty of speciality breads available in shops today.
- ↑ Experienced bread makers can probably get wheat flour to raise it' own weight in other ingredients but it's probably not worth the extra trouble and the bread deoesn't rise very well.
- ↑ If you're one of the majority who can tolerate gluten you can use bread flour for other purposes like making sauces and porridge.
