St. Petersburg, Florida -- Breads, pastries and even your favorite pastas- it turns out many contain a chemical called Azodicarbonamide, or ADA for short.
The ingredient made headlines earlier this month, for being an ingredient in yoga mats and rubber products.
In food, it makes dough spongier.
On the list are foods from popular brands like Little Debbie, Jimmy Dean, and Pillsbury.
Major companies like Starbucks say they're phasing out the chemical in their baked goods. Locally-owned Publix grocery stores are also eliminating bread products with it, by the end of the year.
