Rugbrød: Danish Rye Bread

I have copied and placed below excerpts about rugbrød, Danish rye bread, from three different web pages. To read the full article, just click on the respective web page title to open a new browser.

“The Danes are world famous for their love of rugbrød. This particular kind of nutritional brown rye bread can be found in all supermarkets and local bakeries across Denmark. What makes this bread so special is that it’s very low in fat, contains no oil or sugar and is rich in whole grain and dietary fibre.”

“Oprah Winfrey loves Rugbrød
In October 2009, TV host Oprah Winfrey visited Copenhagen and discovered why Denmark is considered the happiest nation on earth. She praised the Danes’ environmental consciousness; excellent education, maternity leave, healthcare and social programs; but she especially loved rugbrød — the dark Danish rye bread that sums up life in Denmark: natural, unpretentious and cozy.”

“In this world, most likely in the entire universe, there are three things a Dane invariably will miss while abroad for a longer period:
– Licorice (Danish, strong, salt licorice, that is)
– Leverpostej (something not entirely unlike liver paste) or spegepølse (a sausage), according to taste
– Rye bread of The True Kind”
