Major manufacturers of bread and baked goods still use potassium bromate, a potential cancer-causing additive, according to a new analysis from the Environmental Working Group (EWG).
The report found that 86 products, including Goya turnover pastries, Hormel Foods breakfast sandwiches, and Weis Kaiser Rolls, contained the additive.
“In light of the evidence showing its potential harm to human health, it’s alarming that companies continue to use potassium bromate in their breads and other baked goods,” said Nneka Leiba, EWG’s deputy director of research and co-author of the report. “With our new analysis, we hope to shine a light on this unnecessary additive and pressure companies to find better ingredients for their products.”
