Hair's The Ingredient List! ;)

If you like eating duck feathers or human hair, here's a list of foods you should eat:
  • Noah's New York Bagels
  • Dunkin Donut's cake-style donuts
  • Oscar Meyer Lunchables
  • Zatarain's products (cajun food)
  • cigarettes
  • Emergen-C
Of course, don't look for "duck feathers" or "human hair" on the ingredient list.  It will be listed as L-Cysteine.  It is used as a reducing agent in bakery products to:
  1. Reduce the mixing time of the flour dough.
  2. Stop shrinking of pizza crust after it is flattened.
  3. Help move the dough through various bakery processing equipments or dough conditioners.
Gross, grosser, and grossest.  I read this first at (and took this information from) Zsuzsana's Blog.   I may not agree with her all the time but she often includes very interesting information on her blog like this.  Wow!
