Bread in Chile

The crispy marraqueta is one of the most widely eaten types of bread in Chile. This product is shaped into four separable rolls and made of only four ingredients: flour, water, salt, and yeast. Inexpensive to procure and produce, bread serves as a staple food for the inhabitants of Chile, but more heavily relied upon by those reporting moderate to severe food insecurity.
