i mentioned I tried Dave's 21 grain bread.

 

@Anna N mentioned its a bit sweet.  it is.

 

Its a commercial company , and that's fine

 

Id like to go back a few years , many years 

 

I grew up on the SF Peninsula 

 

a long time ago :  there were Apricot trees in Los Altos

 

dirt roads and septic tanks 

 

the apricots were the best 1

 

moving on a few years 

 

a Whole Foods planted itself in Palo Alto.

 

PA is across a street from where I lived at the time , a technicality 

 

but I decided I wanted to get some really fine bread there

 

not unlike the breads from the local bakery 

 

in both Spain and France were I lived , growing up for some time.

 

I was very disappointed :   all of the breads I saw there at the time

 

had   a lot of the Kiss - Kiss stuff  seeds etc 

 

but also trans-fats  ( remember them ? ) 

 

and added sugars  it might be honey  but it was sugar.

 

I do know , doing a little baking myself , some time ago :

 

if your bread has :  water , flour , salt and yeast 

 

it might not last as long 

 

( a very different discussi0n ) 

 

as bread w fats.  if it tasted a bit dull , added sugar might help you out.

 

so to the point :

 

In the U.S. , at major grocery stores :

 

have you found a Daves 's w less sugar ?

 

ie USA sandwich loaf ?

 

thank you for looking into this.
