Long lasting taste and health benefits
Sourdough made from pure natural ingredients has a strong character. It’s a bread with complexity and depths in taste because of a long fermentation process. A mix of flour and water forms a symbiotic culture of lactic acid bacteria and wild yeast that produce carbon dioxide, responsible for what leavens the bread dough.
Baking bread based on wild yeast comes with great health benefits. The natural slow process makes bread that is good for your blood sugar levels. If based on wholegrains the bread will improve the absorption of minerals and vitamins. Sourdough fermentation along with the bacteria also result in weaker gluten. Using sourdough is a way to improve the quality of texture, aroma and shelf life of gluten-free bread.
