@cy Sugar can help yeast/starter work through certain flours, but the quantity used in commercial bread is definitely not used for that purpose.

@lispi314 I found a whole wheat bread that only has 1 gram of sugar per slice. Every other one has at least 4 grams, which is a teaspoon of sugar per slice. The bread I found is like the most expensive bread, and I don't know what to do about it since all the bread I bake myself comes out tasting like rotten flour paste.

@cy I'm not sure what you're doing wrong, but it might be the flour that has something wrong with it (or maybe the yeast). That's not really supposed to happen.

I'd try with a new set of all the ingredients and see if it happens again. You might also just hate the (usually light) taste of yeast.

@cy And yeah teaspoon per slice is *way* more than needed. Something like a teaspoon of honey per loaf is more common in recipes.
