Before this I used to buy bread for my meal. But today, I have gradually moved more and more towards making my own bread at home. It tastes better, reduces preservative intake, has more nutritious and I can customize the bread that I want. It does take time in starting. But once you get used to it, food preparation doesn't take you much time than going to the store and buying the bread.
Why do I dislike the Industrial Bread? The breads you buy from the supermarket are made based on two main objectives: Make the breads on an industrial scale and not grow "old" on the shelf at the supermarket.
The industrial scale process is designed to maximize the profit while still producing an edible loaf of bread. The is done by using excessive amount of yeast in order to create more bubbles in the bread so that less grain is needed to produce the same size of a bread. Their goal is to make a loaf of bread as cheaply as possible even they have to foregoing flavor. nutrition and texture along the way.
Another bothersome part of industrial bread-making is the appearance of a healthy dose of preservatives. The purpose of these preservative is to extend the shelf life of the bread and again reducing the costs for the manufacturer.
Because of this, I started to learn and make my own homemade bread. The food that we eat everyday will determine how healthy our bodies are. I would rather to spend some time to master the bread-making skill at home rather than ruin my health because of the intakes of excessive preservatives and low nutrition bread.
You have several options for slicing bread. You can use a bread knife or an electric carving knife. There are wide range of bread slicers you can choose from. You may read my bread slicer guide [http://www.breadslicerguide.com] and select the right one for your family.
