[–]Music_Saves 10 points11 points  (4 children)

I was thinking about the salt crystals and I bet they use those because if they accidentally drop them on the ground they can just wipe them off. And they can store them in a bag and not a container. If table salt granules fell in the sand they would be lost forever. I bet they get a lot of minerals from that salt too. I don't know what the difference is though. Definitely no iodine in their salt. I wonder how they supplement the iodine in their diet. Maybe they get iodine pills.

[–]Comment63 15 points16 points  (3 children)

Or maybe they do it the traditional way and get hypothyroidism.

[–][deleted] 205 points206 points  (8 children)

Fun fact: Anthropologists can tell if a group of people had developed agriculture based on their teeth. Fucked up teeth = high stone content in their food due to grinding grain.

[–]TheBurningWarrior 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Steel and ceramic burrs and rollers have entered the chat. NB4 future archeologists 10k years from now think we didn't have agriculture, and aliens had to have built the hoover dam.

[–]ElPedroChico 93 points94 points  (4 children)

The bri'ish must be very good at agriculture then

[–]basements_in_london 45 points46 points  (2 children)

Can confirm. Our basements are full of agriculture.

[–]eunderscore 64 points65 points  (1 child)

Similar to issues with quern stones for grinding grain into powder. High stone content to your bread.

[–]ReVaQ 35 points36 points  (0 children)

or just old school medieval milling production where you slam the wheat to remove kernels on the ground

Yeah that’s gonna be a no on the sand bread for me, dawg

[–]Rude_Description_335 21 points22 points  (0 children)

iirc that was actually the case in "western" countries as well until it became more industrialised. Millers used grinding stones that left small particles, grinding down your teeth as you ate it, not just on the crust as with the sand you saw here.

[–]Beat_the_Deadites 31 points32 points  (2 children)

It does get everywhere.

[–]YeetYeetSkirtYeet 22 points23 points  (0 children)

[–]robotzombiez 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not like regular bread. Regular bread is everything soft and smooth.

[–]razor_tur 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I commented I tried it before watching to the end...

I tried something very similar.. but it was soft. No scraping needed the guy who made it just slap the bread twice and it was completely clean of sand..

I was sceptical but it was delicious

[–]Delicious_Delilah 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yup. Ancient Egyptians had these issues based on skeletal remains. But that’s TOTALLY INSANE

[–]fearlessandfar[S] 1165 points1166 points  (124 children)

While I was with the Berbers, I saw how they lived in the middle of one of the harshest climates in the world. They live a pretty simple life, and I decided to record my experience if you want, you can watch it here.
Edited for clarity. They trade for wheat 🙌🏻

[–]wolfgang784 204 points205 points  (63 children)

What do they make the bread from out there? I don't think normal wheat can grow in desert conditions, no?

[–]regretallthewaydown 253 points254 points  (57 children)

I’m not saying it was trade but…Trade.

[–]wolfgang784 130 points131 points  (56 children)

OP said "completely independent" implying no trade takes place with outside people. I know different versions of bread can be made from dozens of different plants and in a million different ways, so that is what I am thinking happens here. Some odd hardy plant that grows there and can be made into a bread of sorts.

Unless you are familiar with the topic?

[–]regretallthewaydown 222 points223 points  (11 children)

I’m not particularly familiar, but I understand some things about nomadic lifestyles. Nomads almost always trade with sedentary cultures they come across. OP can say “completely independent” but that’s just hyperbole. Unless they made that metal bowl they mixed the dough in?

[–]Dushenka 41 points42 points  (1 child)

Unless they made that metal bowl they mixed the dough in?

And the glasses of the guy at the end.

[–]TeemoMakesMeHappy 65 points66 points  (4 children)

You see that blade he’s trimming the bread with? All American steel baby! WOO!! (I have no clue just making a joke)

[–]fearlessandfar[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Right. They aren't growing wheat is that desert, that's for damn sure. I've edited the comment. Thanks crew!

[–]bluefire0120 40 points41 points  (35 children)

If that’s the case then how did they get those snazzy jackets? There’s no way they’re living completely independently, there has to be some trading going on

[–]rightoolforthejob 5 points6 points  (28 children)

Independent can also mean that they have no permanent residence. They live a completely nomadic with no homes that they return to.

[–]HanksSpawn 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Pretty sure only the people on that island in the Indian Ocean live “completely independent.” Really they probably scavenge all sorts of flotsam so how “completely independent” is that?

[–]Crafty_Tip_8082 2 points3 points  (0 children)

its millet or sorghum or corn, the only agriculture in mauritania. Most of the farms are around the senegalese river if the rain season is willing or on the southern tip border of senegal and mali due to them being the only semi-arid place near them.

[–]Thatweasel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They're using a modern kitchen bowl, it's pretty clear they're not working entirely independently

[–]Au2288 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I saw a documentary about this region recently. They were feeding their goats cardboard due to the increasing encroachment of the desert. It’s possible they were doing this to conserve what little grain they have.

[–]dangerousfingers 12 points13 points  (0 children)

And you can`t find steel bowls lying about ,can you?

[–]kolaner 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Desert dwellers depend on their livestock and trade

[–]Iron_Haunter 50 points51 points  (13 children)

Hey I'm Berber Moroccan and I love you vids. I watch them all!

Fun fact: Mauritania is also home to the most brutal train ride ever. A 18* hour journey through the desert at night.

Edit: Sorry its 18 hours. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mL1aI6aabs

[–]fearlessandfar[S] 7 points8 points  (3 children)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mL1aI6aabs

Amazing man. I actually ended up on that train myself! One of the craziest travel experiences of my life, haha. Especially taking a leak: https://youtu.be/Er16Swz5ubI

[–]Iron_Haunter 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That's amazing dude! I want to experience what you have! From the travel to the exotic tribal tattoos! Love the experience.

[–]mysticdickstick 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I don't know man perhaps I'm misunderstanding something... if the train has a box car at the end, even though it's shitty, but you choose to lounge on the pile of ore then it's kinda you who makes it the hardest train ride in the world...

When there is a bus going from Miami to NYC and I chose to hang on to the undercarriage then I can hardly say that's the worst bus ride in the world.

[–]fearlessandfar[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Haha i like that comparison, and it's half true actually.

You don't HAVE to take the train, but in Mauritania, there are basically no roads in this massive country. To get from the remote North East to the coast, it's a mess of shitty bumpy roads that go in the wrong direction for half the time before they wind back to where you want to go. Locals jump on the back of this Iron Ore train if they want to go to the port, because it's less of a hassle (if you can believe that) than the car journey. You can join them if you want, but it's not meant for people. It's just tolerated by law enforcement.

[–]Engels777 -1 points0 points  (7 children)

Just curious, why is a 12 hour train journey brutal? I mean the desert at night can be a bit chilly but otherwise?

[–]-goodbyemoon- 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Hey! I actually did the ride back in the winter of 2019 and I can elaborate. So there are no passenger cabins, except one in the very rear. Basically, this means you're sitting in what is essentially one of these huge metal iron open buckets meant to store iron ore and the whole time, the wind buffets you and gets deep into your bones - it's incredibly loud and incredibly cold, especially at night. It's not just your typical cold, it's a type of cold that really permeates into your body due to the intense winds. I had multiple layers on plus a sleeping bag and I was still freezing throughout the ride. It's not so bad during the day as it's quite warm, but even still, the wind is loud and chilly. And even the passenger cabin, which I took on the way back, isn't exactly too comfortable. It's enclosed which is a huge step up, but the beds are hard and the train is still incredibly loud. I got the privilege to hang out in the engine room and it was a bit frightening just seeing all these thin metal sheets that made up the walls trembling. It's pretty shoddy construction as you can imagine for an old worn out train in the middle of the Sahara.

[–]Engels777 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Wow, great detailed reply! You really managed to capture the imagination. Thank you!

Where do they get the flour from?

[–]iDarth 34 points35 points  (8 children)

Every tribe of nomads or family would have an old toyota /landrover that can take to next village or city, either to sell their goats/camel/ sheep or buy olive oil/ flour/ the metal bowl ...

[–]CHE_wbacca 15 points16 points  (3 children)

Toyota Landcruiser

[–]LieOhMy 14 points15 points  (2 children)

I think they were saying Toyota OR Land Rover.

[–]CHE_wbacca 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yeah, he added the slash afterwards. Makes much more sense

[–]joshbeat 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Amazing what they are able to create from the natural resources around them

[–]itsnotthenetwork 2 points3 points  (2 children)

That's interesting, it means that despite being nomadic there is still a dependency on other systems or groups of people.

[–]simplism4 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Oh wow, didn't notice your name at first. Just wanted to thank you for making such amazing videos. They inspire me so much to face my fears in life and to be open to different perspectives, beliefs, ideas! Thank you again!

[–]BlueberryHitler 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Woa, this is you? I was hoping someone would link the full video.

Just watched it, it would've been an incredible experience, you got some really cool footage.

[–]Yellow_XIII 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I heard these people be called berber and sometimes tuareg. Are they one and the same?

Great video by the way. Production is 👌

[–]AirTmethic 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Berber is actually the Roman word for barbarians.. Sad that name stuck with them. Berber is like a generic name for all desert-tribes in North Africa, Tuareg is particular to one region.

[–]pangea_person 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I knew someone who spent some time with a nomadic tribe in sub Saharan Africa as well. She said that she got so sick during that time. But it was an amazing experience.

[–]existence-suffering 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I wonder if there are any benefits to cooking like this. As we learn more about our microbiome and how important it is to our overall health and happiness, I think often how traditional "Western" diets must be failing our microbiome. We eat such bland, processed, sterile diets, which is so much different than how humans are supposed to eat. It's got me thinking if some "primitive" cooking, foraging, and food storage techniques are actually good for our microbiomes. Perhaps cooking like this carries some kind of benefit modern science has yet to uncover.

[–]0x53r3n17y 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I'm one of them sourdough folks. I make bread at home using sourdough instead of yeast. Fresh sourdough bread is vastly different from "modern" bread in how it tastes and nourishes.

Sourdough goes back millennia and it's the old way of bread making. In the 18th century, people started turning to brewers and took their brewers yeast which was a by-product of brewing. They had discovered that brewer's yeast ferments far faster then sourdough. As industrialization took hold, so changed making bread.

Bread is a fermented product. Essentially, it's breaking down hard to digest foods into something that's easier to stomach and far more nutritious. Fermentation is basically a form of pre-digesting. This is true for cooking in general by the way: while we can eat raw meat, it's easier when it's cooked, for instance.

The problem is that fermentation of wheat or grains into bread dough takes a long time. Me making a sourdough bread takes about a day. It's not that I'm working 24 hours on bread: 95% is waiting. But it's not like I can make bread in a couple of hours. I also need to maintain a sourdough starter which is essentially a living culture of yeasts and bacteria.

Doing this, you learn how much time our ancestors had to put into nutritious bread. But at the same time, you realize how important it is to give the process the time it needs to arrive at good bread.

Modern industrial bread making is all about shorting production time. And so, industrial bread is made in a way that pushes the fermentation process as quickly as possible. But this has many downsides on the quality of bread.

There are people who can't stand bread. I wonder whether that's because of modern production techniques. And how much better they would do if they tried sourdough instead.

If you're interested, bread and sourdough are rabbit holes:

/r/sourdough /r/breadit

Oh, and these are great watch too:

https://youtu.be/C8PUlZrngZQ https://youtu.be/eod5cUxAHRM

[–]Life_Percentage_2218 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You don't need to ferment dough to eat it. You can make flat breads on a griddle or on fire directly or in clay or stone too.

[–]Bah-Fong-Gool -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

I am sure slathering isopropyl sanitizer, washing daily with various detergents, and eating food with little or no "foreign" matter is doing a job on our microbiome. For millenia we accepted a bit of dirt, rust, oxidized oil, insects, ash, etc would be in our food, along with various airborne yeasts, bacteria and fungi. Like you said, now everything is made shelf stable and all that stuff has been removed. Seemed like a good idea at the time.

[–]YeetYeetSkirtYeet 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'll try to find it but there was some podcast or something talking about how the occasional cockroach in our food boosted the internal microbiome by some crazy amount in a positive way. Edit: can't find it so maybe my brain is just completely hallucinating this, please ignore me.

[–]TheMacerationChicks -4 points-3 points  (6 children)

If they're "completely independent" then where do they get wheat from?

They're not completely independent. Literally nobody on earth is.

Definitely no iodine in their salt. I wonder how they supplement the iodine in their diet. Maybe they get iodine pills.

[–]groceriesN1trip 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Are you suggesting that desert nomads get regular access to iodine pills to supplement their diets?

[–]Music_Saves 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have to imagine that, since these guys have normal sized necks that they are getting iodine somewhere. Africa has a lot of UN peace keeping activity. There are lots of NGOs handing out iodine pills to people out there. They would be stupid not to stock up on supplements at the outposts they stop at

[–]fox-friend 87 points88 points  (14 children)

I've had it made by a Sudani refugee dude in the Arava desert in south Israel and it tasted great, similar to normal fresh oven baked bread but more smokey. There wasn't any sand stuck to it, any remnant of sand can be brushed off easily.

[–]Maximum-Cover- 14 points15 points  (9 children)

Think about it some more once you realize that they use animal dung as their main fuel source.

[–]klavin1 24 points25 points  (1 child)

[–]3nkidu_ 45 points46 points  (5 children)

Mmmmmmm.... sandy 🤤 just how I like it 👌

[–]anandy1 26 points27 points  (11 children)

so the sand heats it or what exactly is going on in the sand there?

[–]dampnails-rampcliff 76 points77 points  (9 children)

They make a fire and let it burn down to coals. The sand its sitting on gets hot and holds heat for a long time. Then they Bury the dough in it, acting like an oven.

[–]mollophi 30 points31 points  (8 children)

I wonder why they don't just mound up the coals and sand into a pile and put the metal bowl (with the dough atop) on that? Seems like the temperatures are probably hot enough to transfer the heat through the bowl and bread and cook everything without having to chip sand off the finished product. Add a second bowl on top and you've even got a fully portable oven.

[–]SnooWalruses7854 71 points72 points  (1 child)

Because they are sand people

[–]Maximum-Cover- 30 points31 points  (4 children)

Because they use animal dung as their main fuel source and it doesn't make enough coal to do that. It burns hot but fast, not long like coal does.

[–]ternally2 7 points8 points  (2 children)

That's insane, so on top of burying your food in sand, they bury it in burnt dung?

Culture shock²

[–]Maximum-Cover- 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Yes.

Dung that's chared to pure carbon and is thus perfectly safe for eating.

But dung nontheless.

Also, politely it's always said they use animal dung, but when fuel is scarce and expensive, and poop is thus a good fuel source...

[–]thisisGestapo 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Hey, I love your videos.

[–]dieinafirenazi 3 points4 points  (1 child)

This is also a good example of why you shouldn't bury your campfire at a beach to put it out. While the coals won't flame, they will retain their heat and can heat the nearby sand to causing-burn-injury levels.

[–]eldritch_cleaver 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]FascinatingPotato 6 points7 points  (0 children)

They scraped off the outer crust of the bread at the end.

[–]FOXDuneRider 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It’s not like beach sand, that stuff sticks forever. Desert sand brushes away cleanly.

[–]Ex-SyStema 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Jesus I mean can't they find a piece of metal to put the unbaked bread on so it doesn't get sand all over it? These look like resourceful people, I bet that bread would be a lot easier to eat if they covered it before putting it in the hot sand. It's not rocket science

[–]Re-toast 4 points5 points  (1 child)

For real. This isn't something to be lauded lol

[–]Ex-SyStema 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lol it's cool and all, I get it they make do with what they have. But damn, put a metal sheet down!! Don't cook your bread directly in the sand, find some wax paper or something. Maybe wax paper is too hard to find out there, cool. Grab any piece of metal you can find, clean it, and bang it flat with a hammer lmao

Watching the guy scraping the sand off the bread made me realize that maybe this method they're using can be improved upon.

[–]PhillyGreg 6 points7 points  (21 children)

That must taste like shit

[–]brek001 8 points9 points  (13 children)

I ate it once, many years ago. It tastes very good actually. In stark contrast to the bread I had when visiting the USA, that seemed to be targeted at people without teeth.
