Is Your Bread Slowly Killing You?

If you eat white (or any kind of store bought) bread, then here
are a few things you need to know before you put that next
slice in your mouth.

For example...did you know that the inclusion of hydrogenated
oils, artificial 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 bleached,
enriched 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 chemical process.

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
unrefined version.

When you think about this, it doesn't even make much sense.

Your White Flour Isn't Just White Flour

It is also a growing practice in many bread producing factories to
replace white flour with substances like alum, ground rice, and

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 jeopardizes your health.

Do you know why your store bought bread has such a long shelf

The mysteriously prolonged shelf life is because of a particular
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 their bread.

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 high.

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 diseases?

How 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 right choice
to make. Even if you buy commercially produced whole wheat bread
you're not getting healthy food.

A lot of times what is sold as whole wheat bread in stores 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.

All you need is a good proven recipe, and an expert guide to teach
you just once what to do. I'd be glad to provide you with both if you will visit my Healthy Homemade Bread website.
