flour intended for home use, but you'll find it throughout commercial
breads such as pizza dough, bread rolls and pastries.
While some L-cysteine is directly synthesized in laboratories, most of it
is extracted from a cheap and abundant natural protein source: *human
hair*. The hair is dissolved in acid and L-cysteine is isolated through a
chemical process, then packaged and shipped off to commercial bread
producers. Besides human hair, other sources of L-cysteine include chicken
feathers, duck feathers, cow horns and petroleum byproducts.
Most of the hair used to make L-cysteine is gathered from the floors of
barbershops and hair salons in China, by the way.
