Our Daily Bread
By Joyce Furstenau
1 What kind of bread do you eat? Bagels? Tortillas? Challot? All over the world wherever there are human beings, someone is eating bread. Bread has been one of our main foods from the earliest times.
2 Bread got its start in Asia as an oatmeal-like mixture of ground grain and water. It didn't really become bread until people started baking it somewhere between 4000 and 3000 B.C.
3 Loaves of bread have been found in ancient Egyptian tombs. You can actually see a 5,000 year-old loaf of bread in the British Museum's Egyptian galleries. Grains of wheat that grew in the Pharaoh's fields were found in excavations of some of these ancient settlements. Bas-relief drawings of grain harvests have been found in ancient Egypt. Hieroglyphs representing grain and loaves were also found.
