Preservatives vs. No Preservatives:Weeks 3-6

Yes, I know…I’m a slacker. In my defense (if there is any at all) I almost died (to steal my baby brother’s favorite quote) as I was very ill for about 10 days. In fact for the first time since I’ve been in this ol’ health care biz I thought I had influenza. Not kidding-never been that sick in the past 15 years. Whatever it was….I lived to tell about it and Adam did NOT get it-Yay!

Check out the previous preservatives vs. no preservatives posts listed here, here and here.

In the most recent post I wrote about how I had emailed the company that made the preservative-free bread to find out the expiration date on their bread. While their bread may be preservative-free it lacks any dating on the wrapper/packaging at all. Their response is as follows, “The Lot # would be on the clip that keeps the bag closed.  The attached files will assist you dating your bread for baked date.  The products can be maintained frozen for 9 months, 2 weeks refrigerated after defrost or 5 days at room temperature after defrost. ”   Hmmm, tricky business. At any rate, Adam likes the bread and has been buying it ever since and so I checked out the little clip and could hardly read the number on it but when deciphering that with the “code deciphering instructions” (this is seriously what it says on the top of the form) it basically comes down to the fact that there is NO expiration date per se. Rather you have the time frame they have listed above from the time the bread was made which you figure out from the little clip and their sheet. Too complicated for me….plus the bread is gone before than anyways.

Back to the good stuff. Due to stink, the study is done this week. the no preservative bread’s odor is permeating through the ziploc and it is time to say “sayonara old friend!”. You can click on the previous posts up above to see the first three week’s pictures.

One final thought:  YUCK!
