What is bread, french baguette? About the ingredient bread, french baguette. Including 56 recipes with bread, french baguette, nutrition data, and where to find it.


A baguette is a long thin loaf of French bread that is commonly made from basic lean dough (the dough, though not the shape, is defined by French law). It is distinguishable by its length, crisp crust, and slits that enable the proper expansion of gases.

A standard baguette has a diameter of about 5 or 6 cm (2 to 3 inches) and a usual length of about 60 cm (24"), although a baguette can be up to a meter (39") long.

The "baguette de tradition française" is made from wheat flour, water, yeast, and common salt. It does not contain additives, but it may contain broad bean flour (max 2%), soya flour (max 0.5%), wheat malt flour (max 0.3%). Standard baguettes however may contain a certain number of additives. Depending on those used either in the original flour or in making the bread itself, a baguette (or any other French bread) may not be considered either vegan or kosher.
