I'v e eaten bread in Taiwan for the last 15 years, I know what they put in commercially made bread for mass consumption (preservatives, colorants, enzymes, vitamin C ...) , and I know about cheese ... fake cheese can taste like Edam and the stuff they use in most stuff is fake cheese, or part fake cheese that tastes like the real stuff, and don't think that cheese that didn't melt at 100C is the real thing ... and cheese that has melted and turned back solid isn't really that delicious ... ever had a cold pizza?
here's a list of commercial bread ingredients ...

* Acetic Acid
* Artificial Colors (FD&C Yellow #5 and #6)

Nos here's a list of good bread ingredients ..
* Compressed yeast or Natural Sourdough Starter
* Unbleached, Unbromated Flour (when available)
If you make 'luxury' breads than some ingredients can be added ... eggs, milk, butter, raisins ... but they are basically natural, non-chemical stuff ...
And believe me, the frozen breads (frozen for shipping) of the expensive new bakery on Ren Ai uses more than natural products to condition the products for a long frozen state ...
And here's something to think about ... fake cheese
Do you still believe it's real Edam ...?
