Question about white bread
OK, I should be eating whole grain bread, but I like white bread for my sandwiches. Has anyone noticed how soft and spongey packaged white bread has become? I mean, as of the last 6 months, It's so wet and spongy that when I put it in my toaster, it pops up partly collapsed, from its own weight! That never happened in years past, it does now, with almost all packaged white bread for sale at supermarkets.
Do bread manufactures pump air into the dough like they do ice cream?
Also, I've heard that the Oroweat company pretty much makes packaged white bread for all the supermarkets now. Wow, white bread texture has really changed lately at my 3 major chain markets. It's all the same...spongy wet fluffy soft nothingness.
