Last updated August 16th 2016. Brown bread is a designation often given to breads made with significant amounts of whole grain flour.
This is usually wheat, and sometimes dark-colored ingredients such as molasses or coffee.
In Canada and the United Kingdom it simply refers to wholemeal or whole wheat bread.
This is except in the Maritimes, where it implies bread made with molasses.
Whole wheat flours that contain raw wheat germ.
Instead of toasted germ, whole wheat flour has higher levels of glutathione, and so result in lower loaf volumes. (source)
So can hamsters eat brown bread at all?
Yes they can but it is recommended in small amounts only.
This is because it holds no nutritional value for them unfortunately.
However, it is not bad for them and so won’t harm them if eaten.
