White or Brown?

Wednesday 12th August 1914It is being suggested that the public should eat bread made from wholemeal flour rather than white bread. Eating wholemeal or brown bread would reduce waste and would be an effective way to help limited flour supplies stretch further. Another advantage is that wholemeal bread is said to be healthier because it contains the wheat “germs”.
