Many commercial bread producers add calcium propionate to retard spoilage. This toxic chemical is linked to ADHD. Most breads contain soy lecithin, soybean oil, soy flour, corn oil, or corn starch. Unless these soy and corn derived ingredients say “certified organic” on the label, they are most likely genetically modified. Did you know that some GMO foods are created by inserting a toxic pesticide into the seed so that insects will leave it alone? GMOs have not been tested long term for human safety. Do you want to be a guinea pig?
Caramel color is another common additive and is created by heating ammonia, which renders it a carcinogen! Other artificial flavors and colors are made from petroleum and linked to many health issues, including hyperactivity in children, allergies, and asthma. The FDA requires these to appear on labels, so go check yours now! If you wouldn’t eat it by itself, then don’t eat it in its hidden form–your food!
Keep learning to be healthy!
