People are only just realising a hidden ingredient in bread – it may make you gag | The Sun

PEOPLE are only just realising a hidden ingredient found in bread that some might find a bit gross.

Whether you love tea and toast in the morning or can't beat a bacon butty, this might make you reconsider.

This bizarre ingredient revealed to be found in bread is bound to make you gag.

According to a study, the loaf of bread you buy at your local supermarket does in fact contain human hair.

The amino acids found in factory-made bread are made up of hair as well as duck feathers, cow horns and pig bristles.

It has been reported most of the human hair comes from China.

The hair is gathered together from the floors of barbershops and salons.

But not to worry, the portion of amino acid in the bread is tiny.

Also known as L-Cysteine, it can be avoided by buying fresh bread from a bakery.

L-Cysteine is added to bread to speed-up the time it takes to make it.

However, it isn't added directly to flour and will only be found in shop-bought bread.

Some L-Cysteine is made in labs – but it mainly comes from the cheap and natural protein source of human hair.

It comes after a weird ingredient found in beer was revealed.

Whether you enjoy a mid-week sip or wait until the weekend, it's unlikely you think of all the ingredients in your glass.

But one element – which will definitely put you off if you're a veggie or vegan – is the swim bladder from fish.

Also known as isinglass, the form of collagen is used to make beer more attractive to drinkers.
