Why is everything so f**ked up? Poop for flavor? Maggots in canned tomatoes? Beet juice in cigarettes? Chinese women's hair in my bread? What the hell is going on here?!?! I feel like I've been thrust into the Twilighty show about that Zone.
I knew about half of this already. I've never understood why l-cysteine is used though. In my opinion, it makes little difference to bread except makes it taste really crap.
And anal secretions? Why is there no outrage. I can guarantee that most people simple accept what goes into their food without complaint. And how major companies like sara lee can shrug off the sources of their l-cysteine is absolutely disgusting.
And l-cysteine is unneccessary. Yup, that's right, such flour "improvers" (I don't believe l-cysteine does improve flour) have alternatives. You can easily use ascorbic acid in its place. well, it works for hovis (In britain, hovis is the best commercial bread - vegan, and no sh!tty additives. - It's a winner with me anyway.)
But hey, a few more people know what carmine is. For those interested, carmine is very much like prince, in being known by lots of different names. Although carmine has never changed its name to an unpronounceable squiggle, it's still known as carmine, carminic acid, E120, cochineal and "natural colour" As some of you are aware already, my feud with carmine is huge. I find it more annoying than gelatin. I'd be glad if it was banned, particularly since allergies can be quite severe, and because in terms of hyperactivity, it's very potent, though not nearly as potent as some of the azo dyes.
