    Just a note from a Baker. The bread I make doesn't have sugar in it. I view anything with extra sugar or fats as enriched dough and and is sorta a sweet bread. I do make things with olive oil in it. And no sugar but I don't really see that as enrichment to a degree. Its all kinda subjective

    ahem: "milk bread" in my old cookbooks is NOT a highly sugary confection like JAPANESE milk bread is it just means a bread with milk as one of the ingredients. that is, dairy, not pareve the milk bread in my recipe book for, say, my bread machine has no more sugar in it than the regular bread, it just uses milk instead of some of the water

    Do a theory about bone apple tea! Or about localization. My friend who lives in China went to a restaurant that advertised paella, but it was really just the same ingredients as paella served as something more similar to egg foo young and he found that really offensive. I disagree with him on that because it's not like 90% of the stuff sold as Chinese or Indian food in European descendant dominated areas would be recognizable as Chinese or Indian food to natives of those countries. The fortune cookie was invented in California and tikka masala is from Glasgow. If the same thing is happening in reverse, then who are we to judge?

    11:04 So you could start selling cupcakes and cookies and having them 'usually known as' bread cookies and bread cupcakes (only in name), and they would qualify for tax exemption regardless of sugar content? (as well as a cake designed to look similar to a loaf of bread, like with fondant art) fantastic system.

    The Irish tax law is not undermined by health regulation definitions as they are talking about different things. The tax definition is to differentiate between luxury and staple commodities (the UK has a sugar tax) but you do not mention this when comparing laws. The tax law in Eire is defining staple bread, and non-staple bread, not defining bread.
