Grain bread is a mixture of different grains, bloomed or unbloomed, sometimes ground or left whole and mixed with salt, water, and yeast. Every culture capable of writing recipes has some form of grain bread in its kitchens. Each serving counts as 1 day of rations.

When consumed, grain bread grants the ability to understand the spoken words of creatures or read otherwise incomprehensible written messages. The ability to read does not necessarily impart insight into the material, merely its literal meaning. The meal grants understanding of an unknown language, not the ability to speak or write it.

Written material can typically be read at the rate of one page (250 words) per minute. Magical writing cannot be deciphered with grain bread, nor does it decipher codes or reveal messages concealed in otherwise normal text.

Additional ingredients increase the serving size by +1 each. If all three additional ingredients are included, grain bread also grants a tongues effect, as the spell.
