Scotland grows a lot of wheat but precious little of it is used to make bread. We rely on imports and so have little control over this staple food. It turns out that the wheat varieties in today’s bread may well have less of the nutrients needed for health than in the past. Better grain and better bread can help solve our growing health problems, Scotland the Bread have started research to find more nutritious wheats, suitable for low-impact farming. And they’re passing on the skills that turn locally-grown wheat into delicious, healthy bread.
To help local communities bring better bread within everyone’s reach, Scotland the Bread are supporting six groups to grow their own healthy bread, from the soil to the slice. See here for more details on how to get better bread within the reach of everyone!
