diglycerides, calcium peroxide, and DATEM. They also use an ingredient called azodicarbonamide—you might know it as the “yoga mat” additive from the Subway bread travesty.
This plastic dough conditioner is used to make bread dough fluffier so it can hold more gas (and thus become thicker without the extra calories).
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) notes that because there are so few studies on its potential health risks (which include asthma, allergies, and cancer), azodicarbonamide should be removed from the food supply. We recommend you remove this bread from yours.

I usually treat myself when I eat cinnamon raisin bread (I love them toasted with butter, yum!). But this treat shouldn’t be filled with sugar as this one is.
Instead of eating a staggering 9 grams of sugar (wow!), try a slice of Ezekiel bread that tastes just a sweet, twice as filling, and is only 5 grams!
