Canadian white bread
Type Bread
Place of origin Canada

Canadian white bread is a style of bread produced or sold by several companies—including Pepperidge Farm, Trader Joe's, and J.J. Nissen—that has a heartier texture than the white bread typically found throughout the United States. J.J. Nissen also offers other Canadian-style breads. The term Canadian white bread is not used in Canada; as is the case with the term Canadian bacon, Canadian white is referred to as "white bread" in Canada and is called "Canadian white bread" only when it is exported.

Protein content

Because the Canadian Grain Commission requires relatively high amounts of protein in Canadian wheat, Canadian white flour usually has a protein content of 12-13%. This contributes to the hearty consistency of Canadian bread.
