Sourdough

Sourdough

tasteful  -active & live

Historically, sourdough was the very first ferment used in the production of bread. It comes from a blend of flour and water by spontaneous fermentation (“natural” sourdough) or through fermentation initiated by a starter culture, with or without refreshment.

Sourdough contributes to enrichment of the bread’s sensory profile, develops unique flavors and textures. But in addition to the aromatic aspect, sourdough also provides several other benefits: healthy nutritional content, the casing becomes more elastic, more open, with better fluid retention, which delays the phenomenon of “staling” ie the bread aging.
