    @HodofHod I'll have to ask my father and see if he remembers. He pointed it out to me one time while he was going through shas.

    @HodofHod: Eruvin 81a (today's daf). Although another opinion there is that it's not the composition per se that makes it inedible, but the type of fuel that was to be used to bake it (see Ezek. 4:12).
