Why Is Our Bread So Damn White?

Everything you ever wanted to know about bread—where it comes from, how to grow the grains in it, what gives it flavor, and how to choose or make breads that are nutrient rich and flavorful. Dr. Stephen Jones from the Washington State University Bread Lab explains how the evolution of industrial flour has broken our bread, and shows how we can revive our wheat and return to a more natural, wholesome bread supply.
