Nutritional Information

Everything you buy in the store comes with a Nutritional Information label. I felt that my bread too should have a nutritional label. So far this is what I have come up with based on recipes that we are pretty happy with. The recipes are still evolving a bit, and I will have more to add to this after we get back from holidays.
- I do not put more than a tablespoon of sugar into any recipes, even though many ask for up to 1 cup!
- Number of slices per loaf varies, but I think about 10 slices is common (they are thick, but we may have found a way to make the slices thinner)

In Canada, nutritional labels are allowed 20% error in their information. Therefore I tried to get nutritional information for the ingredients from more reputable sources that the packaging the food came in. I could find this for most ingredients, but not all.
