Record Breaker of the Week:The Longest Bread in the World:

Bread has been an important staple food product to many cultures over the centuries in the world. It is referred to as the “staff of life” in the Bible. … This early bread was particularly successful when wild yeast from the air combined with flour and water, starting a fermentation process and slightly rising the crust. In Nigeria for instance, bread is particularly used during breakfast while in the Yoruba culture, bread is a good combination with ‘ewa’-beans.

Jul 10, 2005 –According to the Guinness Book of Records, the record for the longest loaf of bread is 1,211.6 m (3,975 ft 0.69 in) and was achieved by Município de Vagos, Ferneto, Máquinas e Artigos Para a Indústria Alimentar, Lda. and Comissão de Festas de Vagos in Vagos (Portugal) during the Bread and Bakers’ Party on 10 July 2005. For this achievement, it is somthing2know achiver and record breaker of the week.
