TRUE STORY :
After primary school (at TADE Nurs/Pry APAPA), there came a huge government clamp down on Bromate Flour. Bakers were BANNED from touching it. What did you think gave “Agege Bread” the weight? BROMATE. This meant that over 500 bags of My father’s Baking Flour were put to ruins. They all had BROMATE!
That was when My father’s Bakery business rolled to a grinding stop. Not a dough was milled. My father reduced to a 3rd of his original size. Diabetes showed up like rain.
