Amy Robertson asked Michael Pollan:

How is commercial bread as soft as Wonder Bread? Is it extra gluten? Filler?

Michael Pollan Good question. It's hard to tell from the ingredients, since many of them are vague things like "dough conditioners." It takes dozens of preservatives and other additives to keep a loaf of bread soft for weeks on end, and many of these chemicals are fairly recent additions to the human diet, which is why I tend to avoid them.
