One of my friends posted this on Facebook, it's a picture of the ingredient list for a regular brand bread:
"Azodicarbonamide - commonly found in frozen dinners and frozen potato and bread products – which is used make things like bleach and foamed plastics like those found in yoga mats (tasty!).
Azodicarbonamide has been banned in most European countries because it’s known to induce asthma, and is in fact deemed so dangerous that in Singapore its use carries a hefty $500,00 fine and up to 15 years in prison.
Yet, according to the FDA: “[Azodicarbonamide] is approved to be a bleaching agent in cereal flour and is permitted for direct addition to food for human consumption.”"
Read your ingredients, people. If you don't know what it is, put the product down.
You want a tasty bread? Even though I don't eat bread anymore, I know what tasty bread is. Try http://www.ozarknaturalbreads.com/. Look at the ingredient list for their AMAZING Greek Olive Rosemary Sourdough: Organic unbleached wheat flour, organic rye flour, water, kalamata olives, black olives, cultured wheat, rosemary, salt, and yeast.
You can read, pronounce, and understand all of the ingredients. Imagine that!
I love eating paleo, but if I was a bread eater, you can be damned sure it would be clean, limited ingredient bread. There is no reason to poison yourself for convenience!
I am about to go crash for a few minutes, I babysat and then took the dog on his walk and needed a shower right after because it is so hot out! Need to relax in the AC (thank heavens for the first world!).
