Potassium bromate (or bromated flour)....for chemically baked goods

Potassium bromate (or bromated flour) is great for impatient bakers but bad for your kidneys and nervous system.

You can find it in wraps, rolls, bread crumbs, bagel chips, flat breads.

Bromated flour is derived from the same harmful chemical as brominated vegetable oil. Brominated flour is used to decrease baking time and reduce costs. Only problem is that, it is linked to kidney damage, cancer, and nervous system damage.
Europe, Canada, and China has banned bromated flour.  It is highly used in Large commercial bakeries in the US.
