One of the problems with wheat and oats and such in the US is the practice of spraying it with a herbicide to help with earlier harvesting. Another one is all the garbage they put in it for mass production to supply the grocery shelves. I go with certified organic wheat so I know its not been poisoned. And if you really want to get fussy you can go with Spelt wheat but of course at a additional cost.

The best one I watched was the introduction of a new larger size. It outsold the old size and actually cost more per ounce - 50% more at double the price. Even a new label can change everything! A drink that was not selling had a label change to say "All Natural Sweeteners". You guessed it, they replaced high fructose corn syrup with high fructose corn syrup and a new label! Sales nearly doubled!

As a retailer, I witnessed what Swamp has stated. It happened on a regular basis.
My favorite scam was a popular dog food that stated: "IMPROVED, NOW WITH CHICKEN" . We later found out that the manufacturer had added chicken feathers to their formula. No food value, but the dogs loved it. Of course, I got rid of the dog food and refused to carry it. Customers wouldn't believe it and still requested the food.
MacDonalds is a good example of advertising wretched quality food and getting customers to believe they are getting quality and value.

The only fast food outlet I will ever visit is Chick Fillet. Burger King is almost as bad as Mickey D's. :)

This is way off topic, but I love Chick-Fill-A! And the secret - soak the chicken breasts in dill pickle juice with a tiny dash of lemon juice! Then fry with peanut oil! Breaded or not breaded, deep fried or pan fried, they are really good! Rolled in corn meal is just wonderful! Swamp

Sheesh! Fresh bread doesn't last around my house. It is eaten before it goes stale. I back every third day or so. Mostly I bake what is call turbo bread. It rises overnight and is baked fresh in the morning. I DO NOT need to store it as I do not over bake. Make only the amount you will eat in two days. If it's a small loaf it's your Fresh small loaf. If I want a firmer bread, It's more non-wheat flour than wheat. There are also very good gluten free recipes. The grocery store GF sucks.

How do you make turbo bread. I am looking into buying grain to store and grind for flour. I met a lady who does this. She said it makes much better bread

It remains only to pick up the experiments of the American firm Monsarto in 1913 and you'll see what I mean

Bread lasts a lot longer than 1 day. If Russian bread stales that fast then they do not know how to make bread.

1 Cup of water
2 tablespoons of oil or butter
1 egg

2 tablespoons of brown sugar or honey or molasses
3 tablespoons of freeze dried butter milk
1.5 teaspoons of salt
2.5 cups of good whole white bread flour
.5 cups of good whole wheat bread flour

1 tablespoon of yeast

I use this recipe or variations of it for both the bread machine, which I really really like or by hand. I just made a loaf yesterday and will eat it over the next few days.
