A parting note from Real Bread Ireland:

What is the definition of ?Real Bread??
RBI believe the gold standard to be what they define as ?Real Bread?, a loaf of Real Bread containing nothing more than flour, water and salt with the addition of sufficient time for natural proving as nature intended. This results in a wholesome, tasty and nutritious loaf and with absolutely no hidden additives. RBI do not wish to preach or to tell anyone what they can or can’t eat but simply feel each and every one of us is entitled to know exactly what we are eating and be able to an informed choice when it comes to our Daily Bread.
