The Health Benefits of Sourdough Bread
Did you know that sourdough breads are known to be a healthy alternative to regular brown bread? Our friends in Arbutus Artisan Breads have researched the health benefits of sourdough and have come up with some rather interesting information!
Sourdough bread is leavened by a starter that contains natural yeasts and acids. The airbourne yeast creates the enzymes needed to eat up or predigest some of the toughest-on-your-belly parts of the grain. This action creates carbon dioxide which gets trapped in tiny pockets of dough, resulting in a natural rising of the bread.
