The uses of bread waste

Bread in retail has a take back agreement(TBA) in the UK , where only a certain saleable bread can be bought by shops. This is to cut the massive amount of bread thrown away. This can be as much as 50% of bought bread. Shelf life also affects this. Bread can be used to supplement brewing hops, Adnan brewers being one which does so. In 100g of bread 70% -80% is carbohydrate like starch, some 8-10g is sugars. Some anaerobic treatments are used, and bread waste can be used in building materials. Given that bread is so valuable the separation into distinct recycling paths have been considered. This is expensive however.
