Bread plays an important role in our life. Over the centuries it has traveled and evolved, reflecting both the unity and diversity of human culture, and the ability of people to adapt to their environment. What kind of bread people make depends on what kind of grain is available, and that often depends on local climate and geography.
Though bread is important part of our life we must carefully select the type of bread that we consume. The healthiest breads are the dense chewy types made from 100 percent stone ground whole wheat or whole grain flours. These breads contain significant amounts of vitamins and minerals. Breads to avoid include all 'fluffy' easy-to-eat varieties, or any bread made with refined white flour.

Unbleached, bleached, All-purpose, self rising, Enriched.
Unbleached flour is simply flour that has not undergone bleaching and therefore does not have the color of "white" flour....
