".. because different from .."
This question is mainly about a habit or an expression I "formed" for myself long ago, but I'm not exactly sure if it's correct to say, or what I could use instead. People seem to understand what I mean, but I think it's horribly wrong, and Google couldn't really provide an answer either. So you're my hope!
The expression, upon comparing something, that I tend to use:
"Because different from toast bread, real bread is more crunchy"
Is it correct to use "different from" in this case, or should I be using something else?
