What is brown bread made of?
Brown bread is made of brown dye or wheat.
Whole grain (brown) bread is better than white (refined) bread nutritionally. Whole grain bread, which is typically made with wheat, rye, or oat flour, retains the entire grain when producing the bread. Whole grains are very good for you. White bread contains refined flour, typically refined wheat flour, which is not whole grain.
Rye 'n' Injun bread is a course brown bread made with rye and cornmeal. An early precurser to Boston Brown Bread where rye and cornmeal were mixed to make a substitute for wheat flour. Locally available sweetners were often added to sweeten and help bind the bread. It was then steamed instead of baked in the tradition of an English pudding.
