Preparation References[edit]

I feel if we properly reference many of the preparation content this article would be significantly closer to B-class. I am having trouble finding sources for many of the content in preparation. I do not have much expertise in bread making and am not sure whether certain information is accurate. Does anybody know of any sources we can use?

Guinness records[edit]

I think even after split, we should include the Guinness world record information here. From Bread in Europe:

  • According to Guinness World Records, Turkey has the largest per capita consumption of bread in the world as of 2000, with 199.6 kg (440 lb) per person; Turkey is followed in bread consumption by Serbia and Montenegro with 135 kg (297 lb 9.9 oz), and Bulgaria with 133.1 kg (293 lb 6.9 oz).[1]

We can rephrase and write something like this (I could not edit the main article, do I need to request a protected edit? It does not seem protected.) In Europe subsection of Cultural significance section, before the 'variety' discussion:

  • Bread is a stable food throughout Europe. According to Guinness World Records, in 2000, the three countries that had the largest per capita consumption of bread were from Balkans in Europe. Turkey had the largest per capita consumption, with 199.6 kg (440 lb) per person; followed by Serbia and Montenegro with 135 kg (297 lb 9.9 oz), and Bulgaria with 133.1 kg (293 lb 6.9 oz).[1] Newer sources claim Germany from Europe is the top per capita consumer followed by Chile in Americas. <insert sources here> Also, an enormous variety of bread is available across Europe. In Germany alone, more than 300 kinds of bread are produced, along with more than a thousand types of bread rolls and pastries. [2]

A problem is that the 'newer' sources have reliability issues. Bulgu (talk)

First Bread[edit]

Evidence from ancient grinding rocks shows the oldest known bread was made 100,000 years ago from wild Sorghum, made into a sourdough.[1] — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:30, 19 March 2018 (UTC) Doesn't that mean bread played a significant part even before agriculture, contrary to the first words in the talk page?

Text about OE hlaf isn't about the etymology of bread but the etymology of loaf.

Betty White[edit]

Betty White is older than sliced bread and that's all I gotta say bout that. Thank you for listening to my ted talk. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:39, 27 January 2021 (UTC)
