What is sourdough?
Our sourdough bread is made from the fermentation of organic sprouted spelt flour, filtered water and Himalayan Crystal Salt, 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. Our Organic Sprouted Spelt Sourdough Country Loaf has been fermented in 2 steps. The first fermentation as the sprouting of the spelt grains, and the second fermentation as the proofing of the dough. We have put a lot of time into the making of this bread. This bread is made with 100% Organic Sprouted Spelt Flour.
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.
As this loaf is made of 100% Spelt flour, the texture will be dense and hearty. If you prefer a lighter texture, we also have a Organic Sourdough Country Loaf (100% organic wheat flour).
Spelt is the anarchist of grains. It's tall and wavy and hard to harvest by machine, so it's disliked by big agri-businesses. It keeps its most nutritious parts in the kernel, so they're not removed during milling. So you get a flour that's high in protein, light to bake with and sticks it to The Man.
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!
