Today, in specialized bakeries, you can even buy 11 grain bread. 
Whole grain dark breads have become more popular mostly due to their high fibre content. 
Bread is such a powerful food that in antiquity Egyptian governments controlled it from production to distribution as a means of controlling the populace. 
One can use mashed acorns, ground beans, crushed tree barks, nuts, or chestnut flour, but most balers use primarily finely milled wheat, or rye corn, barley, millet, kamut, spelt and other grains. Wheat flour is preferred because of its gluten content.
