Did you know?

For many generations, eating white bread was considered a sign of status, and peasants ate wheat bread. Around 150 B.C., upper-class Romans insisted on the more exclusive and expensive white breads, while darker whole wheat and bran breads were for the general public. This persisted well into the 20th century in Europe and North America. 46
