What is sourdough?
Our sourdough bread is made from the fermentation of organic 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 it’s special:
Sourdough bread is easier to digest.
The flavor and texture is more enjoyable than that of a commercially baked sourdough.
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. Some research even shows that the gluten (protein) is not as stimulating to the system when the bread is fermented for a long time- meaning those with gluten intolerances may find they can consume natural sourdough bread without experiencing discomfort.
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!
