One of the first tips that we get when it comes to healthy nutrition is to replace white bread with brown or rye bread.
But, not every brown bread is colored like that because of the substances of which it is made.
It’s common that it’s just colored with different substances.
‘The bread may have a dark color, which comes from the substances that actually should not be placed in the bread. They add coffee, cocoa, natural and artificial coloring, red wine … ‘, described by a baker who is well acquainted with the methods of coloring bread.
