How much does bread weigh?
Bread is one of the main products in the life of every person. We eat bread for breakfast in the form of sandwiches, for lunch with soup and for dinner as a hearty addition to the side dish. It is not surprising that we have to buy bread quite often.

How much does a loaf of bread weigh
First of all, it should be noted that the weight standards are controlled by the statestandard and accordingly enshrined in law. Depending on the shape of the bread and its type, these norms vary. For example, a loaf of bread according to GOST should weigh 680 grams with a possible deviation of 3% of the total weight of the product, that is, the weight of tin bread should be from 680 to 720 grams. However, there are exceptions to this rule.
The fact is that today private bakeries do not have to follow the instructions of GOST. They can use the instructions of the TU, and in it are fixed somewhat different norms of weight. Most often, bakeries operating according to specifications, greatly reduce the weight of their products relative to products made according to GOST.Therefore, buying a loaf of bread in the store, carefully read according to what document the bakery works: GOST or TU.
On average, a loaf of ordinary black bread weighs about 700 grams, a loaf of bread "Borodinsky" - 350 grams. Long loafs can weigh 330 grams (for example, "Table") or 400 grams (for example, "Moscow Region"). White tin bread "brick" on average weighs about 500 grams according to GOST.
With such a weight of the whole product, one piece of black bread weighs about 30-35 grams, and one piece of loaf - 20-25 grams.
Thus, buying bread at the store, do not forget to check not only the expiration date and date of production, but also the regulatory document, according to which the bakery that made the bread works. This will help you save money and take care of tasty and healthy food for the whole family.
