Thank you for this answer! :) Upvoted for introducing me to the Chorleywood bread process and for the tips about good bread. I have yet to come by a proper bakery (all I've seen are the indoor "bakery" sections in supermarkets that have the supposed baker sneakily filling the shelves from the other side), and they sell decent bread, though usually white, and usually expensive. The answer given by SAJ already mentioned artificial preservatives, and I figured they would play a big part. It's nice to see something to back that theory up.

@Joe That I took into account. Hence that I added the section about the Polish bread. I can tell from experience (based on taste and consistence) that the English bread if far from the same as the Dutch bread, and the Polish bread is a lot more similar. I've been keeping the English and the Polish breads in exactly the same environment and yet they behave differently every time.

Very nice answer though! I learned a lot from it, and did not know where to do research on this if I'd look for it myself! Thank you.

Haha! The answer I derive from this is that bread available here is probably baked with less moist or more anti-fungal agents, but that I can hardly make assumptions on which is better than the other based on it.
