6. Potassium Bromate
You know those packaged breads that seem to last forever, cost nothing, and fill you up? They may not be as fantastic as you first thought. Potassium Bromate is a common ingredient in these breads products and it’s designed to increase volume while maintaining fine crumbs to make the product appear as traditional as possible. Studies have shown that animals have developed cancer as a result of consuming this ingredient, so in order to avoid it you’ll want to start buying fresh bread!
