Yes I found out the hard way that many of my "whole grain" breads had some milk, eggs, or other nasties snuck into them. Orowheat is notorius for appearing super good for you then adding things like fructose or dairy.
I did have trouble with sourdough also, my wife and I have been wanting to try the baguette sourdough (sunday brunch) from the book and can't find it anywhere.
If you have a health-food store or food co-op near you, they may carry homemade bread. We have three local bakers who make wonderful bread, and the sourdough is just a basic whole wheat sourdough recipe.
If you are a little more ambitious, you can order sourdough starter kits from amazon. They come with instructions, and once you have a starter you can keep it going pretty much for forever. I've been thinking about that, because I don't think I need to eat a whole loaf in the time it lasts before it goes bad (due to no preservatives). I'd like to be able to make small loaves as I need them.
