That’s not your grandmas bread… After you read some of the ‘interesting’ ingredients that end up in your favorite store-bought loaves you may change your habits of trusting bread as well bread. Instead of genetically altered and highly processed ‘wheat’ bread that is really nothing more than the wheat shaft stripped of all its nutrition, try out organic wheat, barley, spelt, and other grains like “Ezekiel Bread.” Many packaged breads and baked goods you see at your grocery store look appetizing. They may even have labels on them that say ‘all natural, ’ or the brand name itself will deceive you by adulterating the name of Mother Nature, calling themselves ‘Nature’s Best’ or something of that ilk. But, guess again – I’m sure Mother Nature didn’t intend for the following 3 ingredients to be in something you dine on regularly: 1. L-Cysteine: processed from dissolved human hair (from China usually), duck feathers, or hog hair.
2. High Fructose Corn Syrup: Food manufacturer’s love to use this ingredient in our foods – because it is addictive, really easy to hide in breads and baked good, and because HFCS is easier to transport and more economical in countries where the price of sugar are twice the global price, such as the United States and Canada. The syrup can be 20 to 70 percent less expensive than sugar. Cheap for food makers, toxic to consumers. High fructose corn syrup is linked to a higher incidence of Diabetes type II and obesity.
3. Azodicarbonamide: Had some respiratory issues lately? How about asthma or skin irritations you can’t explain? Well, Azodicarbonamide, found in many breads sold in fast food & grocery stores (some made by very trusted brands), is a toxic chemical that Subway was petitioned into removing from their breads because it shows up in yoga mats and other plastics which cause cancer developments.
Be mindful of what you’re eating. Its a ‘Brave New World’ as mankind’s “War on Nature” is at its worst. Be healthy. Share what you learn to others and stop supporting companies who feed you poisons.
