Use your loaf
Mass-produced breads usually contain more additives than you might imagine, in the shape of bleaching agents, preservatives and colourings. They can also have a relatively high salt content: one slice might contain between 0.5g and 1g salt. To avoid additives look for organic or traditionally made loaves – or have a go at making your own. A bread making machine is really easy to use – just throw the ingredients in and turn it on. Once you’ve got the hang of it try experimenting with different ingredients to make your very own designer breads.
