Origin: Sylvester Graham was a New Jersey minister (1794-1851) who invented graham bread (1829), which had no additives. At the time, additives were used to make bread white. Reverend Graham preached about healthy eating and vegetarianism as a way of preventing sexual urges. He rejected meat and animal byproducts. Graham crackers were originally a bland snack made from graham flour. Today they are usually sweetened and made with the enriched flour that Graham was against.
