Sourdough is two organisms, wild yeast and bacteria, in symbiosis. Together, these organisms transform the grain to make it more healthful, more digestible and also resistant to getting moldy or stale. Many people with wheat or yeast allergies have no problem eating sourdough bread because it very effectively pre-digests gluten and other parts of the grain. The best part...sourdough is free!

Preparing bread with the process of sourdough improves the nutrition by:

Predigesting the starches, making the bread more readily digestible
Lowering insulin response/improving glucose tolerance
Protecting Vitamin B1 from the damage of baking
Breaking down gluten
Activating phytase to dissolve the phytates, thus freeing up important minerals for absorption

Baking with sourdough is a fun, exciting, rewarding process! It is delicious, nutritious, and best of all - really easy to learn. Hope to see you in class!
