BTN-Daily Bread

This BTN clip is about bread and different bread’s diversity.

Firstly, we grow wheat which is full of carbohydrates that we burn to give our bodies energy. The wheat grains are then crushed and turned into white or wholemeal flour that is included in bread along with water, salt, sugar and yeast which is a living organism that helps the bread rise. Many nutritionists recommend wholegrain breads because the white flour used to make most bread only comes from the middle bit, the endosperm but wholegrain breads use the wholegrain including the bran and the germ which contain lots of the nutrients like fibre, iron and protein. Is white bread more popular than wholegrain bread? Why/why not?

Bread is a popular food but some breads are healthier than others.
