8 Scary Ingredients You Didn’t Know Were In Your Bread

Bread is a staple food in our diet and we just can’t get enough of this stuff, which is why leading fast food chains such as Subway are everywhere. You would think that you could just pick up a delicious sandwich at your convenience without having worry about a thing. But the reality is that there are some scary ingredients in our bread and many of these ingredients you didn’t know were in your bread. You may think that the bread you are eating from Subway is innocent stuff, but the pesky bread makers at the Subway HQ have been discovered to have been using a chemical called Azodicarbonamide. Oddly enough, the chemical is found in yoga mats and shoe soles. If you are thinking: “why on earth are they serving yoga mat bread?” It is because it strengthens the dough and adds elasticity. Yum.

But don’t worry, as on February 2014 Subway said the ingredient will be removed from their bread. In a statement they said:

“Even though this ingredient is safe, we are removing it from Subway bread. This process began last year and is nearly completed — we have already developed an improved bread formula, conducted extensive performance and consumer testing on it, and pending final government approvals we should complete the entire conversion process within the coming weeks. Azodicarbonamide is “an extremely common bread ingredient that is fully approved and recognized as safe by the FDA.”

However, as confident as Subway sound that the chemical is safe, according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest, it has not been tested thoroughly enough.

But it’s not just Subway that’s guilty of using Azodicarbonamide. Various grocery stores and restaurant breads also contain this chemical, including McDonald’s, Starbucks and Arby’s.

Top ingredients to avoid in commercial bread

Back in the day, our grandparents enjoyed a much purer diet free from the additives found in commercial breads, and they were healthier because of it. Nowadays, a lot of food available to us is filled with artificial ingredients that we don’t know much about. Here I list common ingredients found in bread that you are best to steer clear of.

1. High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)

You won’t be shocked to see that high fructose corn syrup in bread is a naughty ingredient. The sweetener – often made from genetically modified corn – is used by food manufactures because it is less expensive than sucrose (table sugar).
