HA! In spirit of taking it old-school for the readers that migrated from the former EllisCountyObserver.com. Here is another bread article. HAHAHA Human hair in you bread anyone? I make homemade bread, thanks to my best friend giving me an awesome bread maker.
I put about two cups unbromated, artisan flour (sometimes organic), little organic olive oil, about 2 teaspoons quick-rise yeast, 3/4 cup of spring water, a few pinches of Red Hawaiian Alaea salt and about a teaspoon of raw/organic turbinado sugar. Then here’s the hard part, I close the lid, press the start button and wait for the beep a few hours later. My bread would make a bologna sandwich taste gourmet. Though I couldn’t tell you the last time I ate bologna. Usually, I throw some avocado, tomato slices and shaved Boar’s head Cajun turkey with fresh cracked pepper and mayo made with olive oil. hehehe yummy

Gross Food #5: Grain products
Why it’s gross: Many packaged breads and baked goods contain L-cysteine—a non-essential amino acid made from dissolved human hair (often from China) or duck feathers (mmmm). Food manufacturers use the ingredient as a commercial dough conditioner, meant to improve the texture of breads and baked goods.
Why it’s bad: Eating something derived from the human body violates the religious and ethical beliefs of Muslims and vegans. Plus, eew! If you want to avoid ingesting hair and feathers—and really, who doesn’t?—try eating unprocessed whole grains like oats and brown rice, and make your own baked goods whenever possible.
