Bread becomes brown when toasted because the sugars (starches) on the surface become caramelized under heat. This also causes the crisp crunch of toast.

This is WHY we call it toast. It is browned bread!! Toast goes brown because of the Maillard reaction. Quote from the Related Link: "The Maillard reaction is a chemical reaction between an amino acid and a reducing sugar, usually requiring heat."

Toast is simply 'toasted' bread, you can toast most types of bread, take a slice and place it under a hot grill, keep your eye on it, or it will burn, when the bread has turned a golden brown colour, turn it over to 'toast' the other side. Alternatively put your sliced bread in an automatic 'toaster' and switch on, the toast should pop up when ready.

Wheat bread It's called "Texas Bread" and is very thick and can be bought in white or brown.

No. Toasters toast bread. If you try to toast toast you end up with burnt bread.

Yes, they can. My rabbit Puddle eats toast every morning. He prefers brown bread and biscuits in the afternoon.

Well i think it is because the toast is already dark and so yeah!

Bread becomes toast when sliced - usually about half an inch thick - and "toasted" by exposing both sides of the slice to high heat until it turns brown and crisp.

No, you can only toast bread.You can in theory if you partly toast bread then toast it again at a later period, then you would be toasting toast, as the first toasting changes the bread. toasting a full toasted toast would make it burn and possibly start on fire.

When you toast bread the moisture is sucked out of it. Mold thrives in moist environments, so it would not grow easily on toast because toast is dry. However, moisture in the air would soon go into the bread and it would grow mold; but not as fast as normal bread.

Toast is bread that has been put in a toaster and browned so it is crunchy and crispy. In effect, it is sort of cooked, although that is not a very good explination in my opinion. Happy Toasting :DAnother answerToast is bread after it is heated and turns brown and crispy.Examples of toast toppings are:JellyJamButter

The inside of the toster get hot, and when you put toast in, let go and the yummy toast will cook.

You put toast into a toaster, not bread. Are you actually that dumb?

User Avatar

Toast can go moldy.However if the toasting process completely dries the toast/bread - this dry product will not mold as mold needs moisture to grow.

Bread. Or charcoal, depending on how you cook it.

Toast is in effect the heating of bread against a inferred heat source. Its the same as baking the bread in the first instance. The dough become hot and stats in effect to burn (going brown) if the dough is left against tithe heat long enough it will turn black

No. Toast is bread that has been exposed to heat to be toasted. Toast and bread have nothing to do with cows, and the making of bread also has nothing to do with cows and does not come from cows at all.

Toast has many nutrients one of which is bread.

User Avatar

It depends on a-lot of things, but most bread gives you its calorie listing on the Nutritional table. Brown generally has a-lot more then white, less sugars ect. for 2 pieces of Brown toast your looking at about 140 calories.

The starch molecules in the bread are broken down into individual glucose molecules. This simple sugar then caramelises and turns the bread brown

Nick has said he likes white bread for sandwiches and toast.

Toast, especially as I always put jam on it which I don't always put on bread.

Bread toasts because the heat turns the bread dark
