I wonder what kind of flour they use. I bet it's tasty.  I wonder what this country would do if all the bread factories were shut down. Actually, I don't want to think about it. Thanks for posting this story.                                            weavershouse

From what I have found on the Internet:

Khubz is Arabic for "bread", and it is made in a lot of Muslim countries, as far west as Morocco.

The recipe seems to vary from 100% whole wheat to 50-50 white and whole wheat.
