adjective does not change with definite noun in neuter?

Hei, just a newbie at learning Norsk, so if my question is too "basic", please forgive me!

In a dialogue in a book I am learning Norwegian from, the book gave "et helt brød" but "hele brødet". Why is not "helt brødet"?

Thanks in advance!

Because you have to account for definiteness. It's not more different than having to account for case in other languages.
