so then why do the grocery stores add all kinds of crap to the pre-made
cake , brownie , pancake ,....etc mixes?
Won't the natural ingrediants preserve them selfs ?
If I bought just the natural ingrediants like flour (unbleached ) , baking powder / soda , unrefined sugar....etc etc
Then just mixed it in the correct ratio's for each of my baking needs and labeled them cake mix , brownie mix ,...etc
Wouldn't this be a healthier option I think Yes
But it is hard to understand why then people started mixing other crap into them to preserve it you say it will hold on its own if you pre-mixed the ingrediants. So why ? The only thing I can think of is for the hardening of brown sugar sometimes can be a pain to breakup but this is a minor think and easy to get around without the intervention of all the added chemicals
