When I was a very little girl, (and that’s many years ago) my mum would never let me lick the cake mixture bowl, saying that I could get tummy ache from the raw flour.  Probably wasnt cleaned with bleach like it is now. 

See original post

 Fortunately chemically bleached flour is not allowed in the UK ......... at least while we're still in the EU.

It is allowed in the US.

Obelixx ... many years ago when I was a newly-wed in a new bungalow we had a lovely neighbour who had 'retired to the country' from Wimbledon ... several of her former neighbours and friends had also moved onto the same estate in a small market town in Suffolk. 

Over the garden fence she told me how she and her late husband had loved to dance all their courtship and married life,  and she and all her friends still danced and had started a new dance club now they'd moved to Suffolk. 

One day she invited me into her bedroom and opened the large fitted wardrobe doors .......... an explosion of multi-coloured chiffon, tulle sequins and net burst out into the room ... she had so many amazing frocks  .... that was the 'Come Dancing' era 

I need help with my research!

Hi Jennifer

This website and forum is UK based and has only one or two contributors from the USA  so is probably not the most useful source of information for you.

Good luck with your studies.
