Do they put hair in bread
The Bread We Eat in Dreams Quotes by Catherynne M. Valente
This Gross Ingredient Is Hiding In Our Bread, And We Will Never Move On
Then you throw in some human hair and duck feathers. Many processed bagels and bread products contain the enzyme L. Einstein Bros. Cysteine in all of their bagels. The earnest folks who work at Horizon Organic do. Buy a block instead, and grate your own. And make sure you're staying away from these sleazy cheeses that boast their own scary additives.
L-cysteine sometimes shown as E on food labels is a food additive often derived from duck feathers or human hair., Photo via Flickr user Nick Saltmarsh. At least that's what UK reports into food production, post-horsemeat scandal, are suggesting.
What I want to know is whether amino acids produced from human hair were used to process the flour that went to make that piece of toast you wolfed down on the way to the bus stop. But first, the veganism. I am not becoming a vegan out of high principle. I will be vegan for all of January. So my new diet did not preclude me eating Ned the Newsnight turkey.
S ince the horsemeat scandal, more of us than ever before are holding a microscope up to what we eat. But no matter how many labels you read, you could still be consuming things you'd rather put on your "do not eat" list. From human hair in our bread to fish bladder in our beer, there are a lot of additives and food processing techniques that employ ingredients and chemicals few would classify as "appetising". It's a reminder, frankly, that non-processed foods are your best bet. Traces of arsenic in food are nothing new.
At its most basic form, bread is nourishing, sustaining and gives us energy. Bread is the basis of so many meals, the bricks that hold sandwich ingredients, spreads and veggies together. Eating bread is as basic to us as drinking water. Bread is the food of life after all. L-Cysteine is one of those ingredients. Um, what? Why would anything think gathering hair would be a good idea for a food additive?
