What is Sourdough?
Our sourdough bread is made from the fermentation of organic gluten-free flour and filtered water, which results in naturally occurring lactobacilli and yeast. We do not use any commercial yeast to ferment our bread. We ferment our dough for 8-12 hours depending on the weather and this creates a special bread that is kinder to the human digestive system. Sourdough bread has a mild sour taste that you will not find in bread made using commercial yeast. This natural sour flavor is the lactic acid: a healthy byproduct of the natural fermentation of the lactobacilli.
Why this Sourdough loaf is special:
- Sourdough traditionally has low levels of gluten but this one is 100% Gluten Free
- It's extremely soft and fluffy - the texture is simply unbelievable!
- Mixture of seeds infused to give you extra protein, healthy fats, and a crunchy texture!
- The flavour and texture is more enjoyable than that of a commercially baked sourdough
- The slightly spongy texture makes it perfect to put spreads on, but it's delicious as is
Due to the long fermentation time, the macro nutrients in the bread (carbohydrates and protein) are broken down into smaller particles, which are easier to imbibe into our systems.
How to Eat it:
If freshly baked, enjoy it as is. Sourdough bread can last a long time without any preservatives due to the natural occurring acids in the bread. However, to enjoy the best texture, we recommend to slice and freeze if you are not going to consume it within 2 days from delivery. By toasting the frozen slice, you can enjoy it as if it were (almost) freshly baked!
