What would we do without bread? The only ingredients really needed to make bread is pretty simple: flour, water, salt and a little yeast! However, when looking at the ingredient list of many store-bought breads, the list is much longer and … incomprehensible!
Have you ever wondered what lecithin or glycerine is, for example? These are in fact food additives found in many packaged foods and intended for longer shelf life. Artificial additives are also added to enhance the appearance and texture of foods.
Unfortunately these chemicals can have negative affects on our on health, so we need to be as cautious as possible.The best way to eat bread is when it’s freshly baked without any nasty ingredients. The solution? Neighbourhood bakeries! Not only will you benefit from real ingredients, but the local economy will also get a helping hand.
