Why Sourdough??

Caring for a sourdough starter can be one of the most difficult or intimidating things for anyone starting to bake sourdough bread.

That’s why I’ve prepared a guide to help anyone just starting this journey!

But let me back up a second…

Why would anyone be interested in sourdough baking in the first place? It can take time and is sometimes difficult to master…

I’ll tell you some of the reasons I really like sourdough and why I use it almost every day.

Using sourdough is really just using natural yeasts, and using natural yeasts is the natural way to make bread.

It is the process that many cultures have used for generations. But why is it called sourdough?

Well, when natural yeasts are fermented in flour and water, they break the sugars down and produce acids. These acids lead to a “sour” taste and smell, hence the name “Sourdough”.

This process of breaking down the sugars both increases nutrients and makes the gluten more digestible.

The fermentation process that occurs when sourdough is used leads to some of the gluten being predigested, and it can make bread or other goods more easily digested.

I have long struggled with gut issues, but sourdough always leaves me feeling great!

This is why making sourdough bread really is an excellent choice for everyone.
