FMTV - The Trouble with Bread

The Trouble with Bread

Runtime: 26m 31s | Release date: 2014

This film features: Michael Pollan.

Michael Pollan (author of "Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation") told the filmmaker, Maggie Beidelman, that her gluten intolerance could all be in her head. She half agreed with him, because the number of Americans buying into the $10.5 billion "gluten-free" industry is disturbing. There is so much more to learn about wheat - and how it has changed in just the last couple of generations - before we completely sign it off.

In this film, Ms. Beidelman journeys from farm to mill to table on a quest for answers about gluten intolerance and a hunt for the perfect loaf, one she can eat without getting sick. Along the way, she makes some unexpected discoveries about crucial changes to the wheat itself and how it is processed and fermented. Let’s just say that bread as you know it, is not what you think.

Featuring:
Maggie Beidelman

Are there any trusted online retailers to purchase real whole wheat bread that is not going to kill me? I need bread in my life I am not going to give it up ever, or does anybody know how to start a starter from home. They mentioned France I wonder about Italy, you would think Italy would have good digestible bread left in tact to eat they almost worship the bread there. I love Italy. Russia also has banned Monsato and GMOs, they are making some great strides in farming in Russia no one seems to have problems in consuming Russian bread either. The US is toxic in so many ways I love my country but I am not proud of what we have done to Wheat in this country what a problem.

Great documentary on bread. The glaring omission was glyphosate. I would have loved to see something on that, otherwise this is great

Nice doc but I was disappointed that it didn't offer any solutions. There was nothing new in this one that Michael Pollan didn't cover in his Cooked documentaries. Now that is a great docuseries.
