Question burning bread!!!

I really need help.... I need to answer a curios science question and i have done a couple of experiments which do not seem to be giving me the right answer. Not sure if it matters if i prove it wrong.
The curious science question is.....
'I have noticed that brown bread or wholemeal bread chars more quickly than white bread when youi toast it. Why? (This phenomenom can be tested and data used in the explanation)'
In my wxperiments the white bread always chars more. Also if anyone can lead me in the right direction to any websited that may give mem more information. Hope to hear from you soon.

It is probably because white bread looks like it's charring more because it is a lighter color and is more noticable. It is okay if you prove the hypothosis wrong. It is an educated guess, not a fact.

Default Proving your hypothesis

To prove your hypothesis that brown bread chars less easily than white, you must have an objective way to measure the degree of charring. How do you propose to do that?
