What is Sourdough?

Slow fermented bread which is proved by naturally occurring yeast. This is done by using ancient methods of bread production.

What are the health benefits of sourdough?

Sourdough is proved slowly, the gluten bonds are broken down and fermentation is done prior to baking. This means that it is more easily digestible in the gut. This will therefore improve gut health. This means that it can be a good treatment for people with gluten insensitivities or intolerances (but not coeliac disease).
