Bread is the world’s favorite staple. Every country has its version, and with tons of different styles and flavors available at the stores, it seems the world can’t get enough of it. Nevertheless, according to research done by Tesco, almost 44% of bread bought goes to waste.
So, the real question is, how can we keep this dietary essential from going to waste in the first place?
As a crowd favorite, bread tends to get bought in large quantities as it is an affordable and filling option, but it goes stale and gets dumped- fast, leading to bread waste. Learning how to make use of stale bread can help reduce waste. For instance, if you end up with leftover food from your dinner parties, toasting it is a delicious way to refresh it. Stale bread is also great as a binding agent when making patties or for coating in any other breaded dish. Knowing how to make use of leftovers is key to reducing waste.
