Q. Why should I buy it?
Sourdough bread is a slow-fermented bread that contains lower amounts of gluten and its prebiotic and probiotic like properties may help improve digestion, may allow for better blood sugar control and improved insulin sensitivity. Sourdough bread is actively made using sourdough culture of wild yeast which acts as a natural leavening agent. Giving the leaveners time to do its job, the 24 hr fermentation time helps tease out more complex, nuanced flavors in the finished bread.
Q. Why should I make the switch?
