I can clear up the Ormosia confusion. What Yiran meant were Adzuki beans, which are red beans that are often made into a paste and used in pastry, especially in China and Japan. They are just called 红豆 red beans in Chinese. The plant Ormosia has red fruits that are also called 红豆 red beans and the plant Ormosia is called 红豆属 ("a type of red beans"). So, when you look up the word in a dictionary you might actually end up with the wrong kind of red beans...

@Yiran
Best is to use "red beans" or "red bean paste" (豆沙) depending on what was in the bread.

Hi Yiran! It says you're a native English speaker. It also says you're from China. If this is incorrect information you might want to change your profile info.

"Yesterday, at dinner, I ate a triangular bread. It was delicious. I took it from a desk at work, my coworker said the bread in the plastic bag was okay to eat. It had Ormosia( I do not think this is the right word for what you mean, when I looked up what this was on Google, it said it's a deadly poisonous ornamental plant! ) in it. It was crisp to the bite, but soft inside. I love crispy bread!"

This is why it is good practice to put a footnote for the text or to highlight it somehow, either by putting marks in the margin, or a following sentence to explain, or even [brackets] or {parentheses} after the word.
Italki is more reliable than Google or Apple or anything else.

Maybe you mean "it has formosa in it" or it was made by a bakery called formosa a very common name for a bakery to have.
ormosia will kill you like @Heidi suggested.
