Canadian white bread is a style of bread produced by several bread companies including Pepperidge Farm, and J.J. Nissen. It has a thicker consistency than the regular white bread familiar in the United States. J.J. Nissen also offers other Canadian style breads. The term Canadian white bread is not used at all in Canada; similar to usage of the term Canadian bacon, Canadian white is referred to as "white bread" in Canada, and only called "Canadian white bread" when it is exported.

Because the Canadian Grain Commission requires relatively high protein amounts in Canadian wheat, Canadian white flour usually has a protein content of 12-13%.[1][2] This contributes to the hearty consistency of Canadian bread.
