Store-bought bread is destroying your body. Your morning toast has more sinister effects than you know. If you want to include bread in your diet, the way to go is make sourdough bread yourself.
Humans have been making bread for at least 10.000 years. It’s a part of who we are, and humans treated it as an art until big companies began warping it in the name of profit.
The easiest way to tell a bread’s quality is by the number of ingredients. At its core, real bread has flour, water, salt, and optionally yeast.
What sits on the store shelves is a whole different beast. Since being commercialized in the 1920s, big bread has resorted to ever-increasing ways to shorten the baking process while extending shelf-life.
The result has created a Frankenstein-like food: The Almighty White Bread. Aka ‘Dead Bread’ The toxins pumped into this bad boy make seed oils look like mineral water.
If you want to eat quality bread, you have two options here, the first being to visit your local bakery.
Be careful. Not all bakeries make their bread in-house, if you can believe it. Ask the baker if & how they bake their goods. If they refuse to share that info, take your business elsewhere.
Your second option is to bake your own bread. It’s an involved but highly rewarding experience. I recommend everyone try it at least once.
