Have you looked up the ingredients on the back of your “store bought” bread lately?

For example here is a typical list of ingredients found in commercial “whole wheat bread.”

“100% Whole Grain Flour, Water. Contains 2% or less of Sugar, Dried Apples with Sulfur Dioxide and Sodium Sulfite, Soybean and Palm Oils, Whey, Mono- and Diglycerides, Beta Carotene, Artificial Flavor, Sodium Benzoate, Vitamin A, Palmitate, Fructose Crystals, Butter, Wheat Flour, Whole Soy Flour, Vital Wheat Gluten, Corn Syrup Solids, Algin, Non Fat Dry Milk, Cinnamon, Salt, Yeast, Vegetable Gums, Enzymes, Orange Emulsion, Gellan Gum, Calcium Carrageenan, Methyhydroxypropyl Cellulose, Natural Flavor, Spices, Citric acid, Malic Acid, Datem, L-Cysteine, Ascorbic Acid, Azodicarbonamide (ADA), Potassium Iodate, Modified Food Starch, Agar, Cinnamon Emulsion, Vanilla, Spices, Malted Barley, Dextrose, Lecithin, Caramel Color, Potassium Sorbate.”

You will notice a bunch of strange chemicals like “Mono- and Diglycerides” and a host of other unpronounceable stuff. You will also notice that this “whole wheat bread” contains “Whole Soy Flour.” Why do you need “whole soy flour” in “whole wheat bread?” The explanation would require another article which would deal with “GMOs” hidden in your “store bought” processed foods. But today we want to deal with a chemical that is found in almost all commercial bread including the ones on your favorite hamburgers, hotdogs and fish sandwiches at your favorite fast food joint. You will find “L-cysteine” as an ingredient in most commercial breads, including bread loaves, tortillas, pizza, bagels and pastries.

L-cysteine is an amino acid most often synthesized from human hair. Now this is a real problem for Muslims, because according to Islamic law, we are not allowed to eat anything containing human body parts, including flesh, hair and nails. L-cysteine as an ingredient may be hidden within a generic ingredient called “dough conditioners” and therefore not required to be itemized on labels.
Ostensibly, L-cysteine is added to bread in the production process as a “dough conditioner” to speed up the kneading process of bread making. L-cysteine supposedly makes the baked bread softer. How human hair makes bread softer is “above my pay scale” (smile), but here is a fact worth considering.

According to http://www.naturalnews.com/032718_L-cysteine_commercial_bread.html, most of the hair for making L-cysteine comes from China. For the last 2,000 years Chinese women save their placenta (afterbirth) to use on their and their daughters’ hair to make it silky smooth and straight. So maybe the same chemicals that makes Chinese hair smooth and straight helps “store bought bread” to be soft and chewy.There may be a more profound and sinister reason for the “merchants of death” to change the “staff of life” into the “stuff of death” by putting human hair laced with placenta in our bread. To deal with this subject will require that we go a little into the production of so-called HeLa cells taken from a cancerous tumor of a Black woman named Henrietta Lack in 1951 and the bizarre formulae used to keep her cells alive in laboratories even unto today. One of those three ingredients was and is “human placenta.”

Ironically, L-cysteine was first introduced into commercial bread manufacturing in the early 1950s. HeLa cells were used in the production of the first polio vaccine produced by Dr. Jonas Salk in 1952; the same polio vaccine that The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad warned his followers not to take. Now scientists like Dr. Leonard Horowitz can document how the polio vaccine was used to spread cancer. In the 1950s cancer was considered a “white man’s disease.” Now more Blacks die from cancer in America than do Whites. L-cysteine may be one of the ingredients used today to feed those cancer cells that were put in us through the mass vaccination programs.

However, understand that there is a way to eat bread that is not spiked with human hair. Buy Muhammad Farms whole wheat flour and bake your own bread or buy your bread from Muslim bakers.
