Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.
With 257,597 views on Thursday, 1 August 2019 our article of the day is Bread.
Bread is a staple food prepared from a dough of flour and water, usually by baking. Throughout recorded history it has been a prominent food in large parts of the world and is one of the oldest man-made foods, having been of significant importance since the dawn of agriculture.
Bread may be leavened by processes such as reliance on naturally occurring sourdough microbes, chemicals, industrially produced yeast, or high-pressure aeration. Commercial bread commonly contains additives to improve flavor, texture, color, shelf life, nutrition, and ease of manufacturing.
Bread plays essential roles in religious rituals and secular culture.
