How is sourdough bread different from regular bread?
Regular bread is made using store bought yeast which reacts with gluten making the dough rise. Sourdough bread however is made with a “starter” which is literally a fermented mixture of flour and water.
Why is sourdough bread good for you?
Sourdough bread contains the bacteria Lactobacillus in a higher proportion to yeast than do other breads (this “helpful” bacteria is also a popular probiotic and provides living bacteria that helps the body absorb nutrients to keep a healthy balance of good bacteria.
Sourdough does not require much gluten, unlike factory-made bread which often has gluten added. If you’re gluten intolerant you may therefore find sourdough bread more comfortable to eat. Sourdough bread also produces a smaller surge in blood glucose and insulin than other types of bread.
