Egyptians made bread from two kinds of grain. One was called emmer, an ancient kind of wheat that was harder to hull than modern wheat. The other was barley.

Some bakers may have added yeast created from brewing beer. Ancient bread was heavier than modern bread because it was made from emmer wheat and barley, which contain very little gluten, a substance that makes dough stretchy.
