The story behind bread

Despite the INSEE (National Institute for Statistics and Economic Studies) demonstrating that the French population’s bread consumption has decreased since the beginning of the 20th century, there has been an increase internationally. A cornerstone of the French diet for hundreds of years, bread is a vital part of everyday meals and remains one of France’s most famous specialities.

Bread consumption can be traced back to the Egyptians and the Romans. Today, there are hundreds of different varieties of bread depending on the country, the flour used and the baking process. The famous baguette dates back to the industrial era and the evolution in kneading and baking techniques.
