I am such a bread snob. I only buy bakers delight bread and won't freeze it because I don't like it once thawed. I would rather pay more for a great BD loaf of bread which can easily last 3-4 days and still be nice, than buy an 80c loaf from the supermarket and have it be disgusting right away.
And to the poster who didn't know about freezing milk, it was a common practice in my house growing up- I grew up on a farm and mum shopped weekly. Milk was frozen in the container to keep it longer and defrosted in the fridge at least a day before it was needed. It looks weird frozen but tasted ok once defrosted.

Our coles and woolies cheap loaves are a lot better lately. We go through so much that paying $4 a loaf would mean at least $20 a week in bread lol

I make my own fresh sourdough bread and it doesn't last a week between me and DD before I make another loaf so I don't need to freeze.
We're both gluten free but homemade sourdough is tolerated as it's fermented and the gut can break it down.
It's so yummy. Store bought gluten free bread is just awful. Bleugh!!

I use frozen bread for toast and fresh for sandwiches. I don't like the way it defrosts, tastes funny to me.

Oil is the only thing used as a preservative and it's not considered a preservative as it's a natural ingredient. All it does is keep the bread moist because it locks in the water molecules.
Also, the other things that determine the shelf life and product quality are the moulding technique, resting and mixing of dough, correct development, water ratio, baking time.

I think bakers delight bread is awful. I think it's like saying I won't eat at McDonalds but sizzler is posh.
I am a supreme inner city melbourne bread snob. If given a choice I only eat sourdough bread without any additives. I used to get involved in debates about the use of ascorbic acid in bread.
Now I can't access it as easily and my kids don't appreciate it I buy abbott bread. I won't eat it though.
