flour

Many flours and baked goods contain potassium bromate, a carcinogen that has been banned across Europe


Much of the flour sold in the United States has been treated with potassium bromate, which causes the flour to bulk up, strengthens the dough and makes the bread rise more. This decreases the time needed for baking (thereby reducing costs) and also allows the use of low-quality flour that might otherwise be unsuitable for baking.
