Your Bread Slowly
by Beth Scott
If you eat white (or any kind
of store bought)
bread, then here are a few things you should know before you put that
next slice in your mouth.
For example...did you know that the inclusion of
preservatives, emulsifiers, additives and other chemicals in bread
became standard practice in the mid 1950's?
At this same time whole wheat flour was replaced by
white flour. In this process, grain is bleached and sterilized with
chemicals to make it white and soft. It is then artificially "enriched"
by adding vitamins, minerals and other materials destroyed in the
Despite what you may have been told, trying to
“enrich” something with
the very vitamins and minerals that were removed from it in the first
place, does not make it even half as healthy as the natural
When you think about it, it
doesn't even make much sense.
Your White Flour Isn't Just White Flour
It's also a growing practice in many bakeries to
replace white flour with substances like alum, ground rice, and
whiting. Alum is the most commonly used of all these substances,
because it gives the bread a whiter color and causes the flour to
absorb and retain a larger amount of water than it would otherwise hold.
This enables the factories to produce bread which
imitates bread made
from a higher quality flour. This tainting of your bread with harmful,
cancer causing chemicals such as potassium bromate, emulsifiers (both
commonly used in bread production), and alum will jeporadize your
Do you know why your store bought bread has such a
long shelf life?
The mysteriously prolonged shelf life is because of
emulsifier used in making the bread. This emulsifier is mainly used as
a softening agent and tends to deceive buyers as to the real age of
This emulsifier can hide the signs that your bread
is rotting (it
certainly doesn’t stop the rotting) for a few extra weeks, but the harm
it does to your body (and the harm in eating the half rotten bread)
makes the cost for this "convenience" very dear.
Is it any wonder then, that every year a growing number of people just
like you and I, are being hospitalized with illnesses and incurable
Can You Survive?
Is it possible for you to protect yourself and your loved ones against
unhealthy and harmful bread?
Well, buying bread from a store is certainly not the
to make. Even if you buy commercially produced whole wheat bread you're
not getting healthy food.
A lot of times what passes for
whole wheat bread
is actually white bread colored with caramel. If the first ingredient
in a loaf of whole wheat bread is unbleached enriched flour, then
you're not truly buying whole wheat bread at all, just white bread
(loaded with chemicals) that is disguised as whole wheat bread.
There is only one true solution to
ensure that you avoid
poisonous, toxic bread. And that is to bake your own healthy whole
wheat bread. This is no where near as difficult as it sounds. In
fact it's dead set simple.
need is a good proven recipe, and an expert guide to teach you just
to do. I'll be happy to provide you with both.
