Challah Bread Nutrition Facts

Challah Bread

Challah bread (also spelled hallah and pronounced hall-ah) is a soft, fluffy Jewish staple frequently consumed during special meals, from indulgent Sunday French toast brunches with friends to traditional Shabbat Friday night family dinners. Challah is a sweeter Kosher bread usually braided with egg-washed, shiny crusts and often contains no dairy or meat. Because most American and European bread contain butter or milk, lactose intolerant people and those watching their dairy intake find challah appealing.

Eggs, delicate white, high-gluten flour, water, yeast, sugar, and salt are all used in a typical challah recipe.
