Since the beginnings of civilization, bread has been a staff of life. The unleavened flat breads of ancient times, gr&ndmother0s old-fashioned home-made loaf, and today’s precision-controlled product have all vitally contributed to the world's food supplies and have made baking a basic economic activity in most societies. Despite the increased variety of foods now available, bread is still a staple in many diets. Although bread baking was one of the last types of manufacturing to advance to the commercial stage, the development of the industry has progressed rapidly so that today commercial bakers account for approximately 90 per cent of the total bread production in the United States.
