"Sourdough is a cocktail of enzymes. During the fermentation, the sourdough through the enzyme "maltase" reduces the maltose (sugar) present in flour. This process brings the sugar level down in the bread and at the same time keeps the blood sugar level low for sourdough bread consumers. The more sourdough in the bread, the better it is, and the more rye in the recipe, the more sourdough is needed."
The fermentation of sourdough is a similar process to that of wine, cheese and yogourt. The distinctive taste of this bread is from a controlled fermentation of quality organic rye flour. The lactobacillus present in sourdough is a vital component, which revitalizes living matter, minerals and trace elements.
The fermentation is carried out by a natural culture of airborne yeast and lactobacillus that live in symbiosis, and support those enzymes to transform the flour components into aroma, colour, CO2, elasticity in the soft heart of the bread and give it a naturally and relatively long shelf life.
Sourdough works like a little biological production center transforming flour into a tasteful treat, containing organic acids, enzymes and minerals, which are essential for balanced health.
To eat fermented food is more important than ever before. It brings balance into the majority of people's diets, often composed of foods such as animal products and sugar, which lower the body's pH.
It's easy to digest. It's full of health. It's made with love.
"There's an urban myth that if you want to loose weight, you shouldn't eat bread. But the truth is, bread is one of our biggest sources of grains and has a number of healthy benefits." ~Prof. Terry Graham
