I have hair in the food: people freaked out when they found out - bread contains human hair - voila! Food


If you were looking for a reason to wean yourself off gluten, the following information will probably do the trick: Studies have shown that breads may contain traces of human hair or duck and chicken feathers

How to revive dry bread?


After you digested the news that our coffee may contain cockroaches and that Parmesan cheese is made from dried calf's stomach, you will now have to face another hard news: the bread you buy at the supermarket may contain traces of human hair.

Worse, it may contain remnants of duck and chicken feathers, cow horns or pig bristles.

Gluten withdrawal anyone?

People are starting to question their loaves of bread after a 2016 study revealed they may contain traces of human hair.

This study somehow escaped the public eye, but now it's causing a stir on social media.

How does that make sense?

The culprit here is L-cysteine, an amino acid found naturally in our bodies, but it is also used to extend the shelf life of certain products - including bread.

The amino acid can be "synthesized" from human hair to help preserve food products.

The BBC reports that helcysteine ​​may also come from duck and chicken feathers, so it does not always come from human hair.

In addition, the regulations of the Food Standards Agency in Europe say that you can use cysteine ​​that comes from duck and chicken feathers only.

While some types of helcysteine ​​can be concocted in labs, a cheaper alternative is to use human-grown hair for its natural protein element.

Vice reports that in China they use hair collected from the floors of barbershops and beauty salons.

Those who are less into human hair or duck feathers, even the smallest amount of them, can choose to buy freshly baked buns.

TikTok user from the USA and vegan influencer, Renee Starkey, shared the surprising discovery with her 50,000 followers. In the video, she said: "The cysteine ​​in bread products still comes mainly from human hair, duck feathers and pig hair.

It is used to extend the shelf life of many products." Although there is no mention of human hair (or any other hair) in the list of ingredients displayed on Rene's loaf of bread, she claims that "it does not indicate where the ingredient is produced in the USA."

She also replied to the person who wrote that it's just an amino acid and not really a hypothesis: "You're right, it's just an amino acid, but it's made from human and animal products, neither of which I want to consume."

@reneestakeyreal Did you know there is human hair in store bought bread?? L-Cysteine ​​is an amino acid used to prolong the shelf life of bread and other products.

This information stressed many in the comments to her video.

"I don't eat bread anymore," one wrote and another added: "I have cat fur in all my food so I guess I'm used to it."

Beyond baking, when l-cysteine ​​is taken as a supplement - usually in the form of N-acetyl-L-cysteine ​​(NAC) - the human body processes these amino acids into glutathione, a powerful antioxidant." NAC can help prevent side effects caused by drug reactions and toxic chemicals and help break down mucus in the body," Mount Sinai reported, "it appears to have benefits in treating certain respiratory conditions, such as bronchitis and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)."
