What is meant by the term 'unsweetened' bread?

Unsweetened means that the bread has not been baked with any sugar or syrup to obtain a sweeter taste. Sweetened bread is very common in Sweden and can be quite a shock to an unaccustomed palate! However, there may be a small quantity of sugars present from other ingredients, such as those found naturally in the flour. Sugar is also present in ingredients such as malt or wort. A certain amount of sugar is used during rising and a bread is therefore considered to be unsweetened as long as no sugar is added in addition to that used during the rise. Consequently, it is entirely natural for an unsweetened bread to contain 2-4 g of sugars per 100 g. The Product Guide on our website indicates which of our products are unsweetened.
