Lukashenko shown new type of bread

SMOLEVICHI DISTRICT, 16 August (BelTA) – A new type of bread was shown to Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko as he inspected the selection and seed complex of the Scientific and Practical Center for Arable Farming of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (NASB), BelTA has learned.

Domestic scientists are analyzing the baking qualities of grain of certain crops. Now they are actively working on triticale. Bread made from it is grayish, in contrast to the traditional black (rye) and white (wheat) bread. As Aleksandr Lukashenko was reported, gray bread can hit store shelves within two to three years.

Usually, triticale is not used in bakery, but scientists are working to create a variety that will be suitable for it.

Aleksandr Lukashenko also tasted wheat bread. The baked bread contained only 50 grams of flour and water. As the scientists explained, the volume of bread baked from 50 grams of flour can be different. This determines the baking quality of the grain - the strength of the bread. The volume of 0.75-0.8 liters indicates high quality, while the one which is less than 0.4 liters means that such grain is suitable only for fodder.

The president found such bread very tasty.

The president was also shown other products, including various kinds of grain, cereals, rapeseed and even mustard oil.
