Watch before you dig into that bread sandwich! It could be cancerous!

Posted on May 24 2016


Whilst the hot discussion topic around healthy eating has been on brown bread vs. the white bread, the astounding new finding reported recently reveals startlingly disturbing news. A study conducted by Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) claims that as much as a whopping 84% of breads tested by them were found to contain potential carcinogens! This includes white breads and brown breads by popular bakeries, pre-packaged products from branded companies and even reputed food chain restaurants.

Chemicals like potassium bromate and potassium iodate are often used to help the bread dough rise and achieve a uniform finish. These chemicals were declared potential in causing cancer and many countries have banned their use. However the FSSAI permits the use of these ‘under permissible limits’ in India! The CSE study reveals blatant misuse and liberal use of these dangerous chemicals!

Whilst the news grabs headlines, it may be a good idea to educate oneself of the obvious harmful effects, once again proving how our precious health is at risk at the mercy of unscrupulous financial gains of food business. Does that mean one should give up eating bread completely?

No, not at all! Being aware means being smart, not hit the panic button! With the bad, there always exists the good! The idea is to find the right people who believe that health is not to be compromised at any cost for profit.

Switching to whole wheat bread, one that is made with love and care, free of quick short-cut processes is what is the key to enjoying the pleasures of eating right.  It is just a matter of finding the right place that takes pains to bring the purest and best breads for joyful consumption!
