What Ingredient Makes Sourdough Bread Sour?

According to Wikipedia “Sourdough is a stable culture of lactic acid bacteria and yeast in a mixture of flour and water.

The yeast produces gas (carbon dioxide) which leavens the dough, and the lactic acid bacteria produce lactic acid, which contributes flavor in the form of sourness.”

Is Sourdough Bread The Healthiest?

Although it has comparable nutrients, the lower phytate levels of sourdough bread mean it is more digestible and nutritious. This is one of the reasons it is viewed as a healthier choice.

The prebiotics also helps to keep your gut bacteria happy, and they may be less likely to spike blood sugar. Sourdough also doesn’t bloat you like more traditional bread.

Can You Eat Sourdough Bread Every Day?

It also contains a variety of vitamins and nutrients, making it a more beneficial choice. It is considerably more filling, meaning you need less to be satisfied.

Sourdough burns off a lot slower than the more traditional highly processed bread. This means you stay fuller, longer. Sourdough maintains many of the original nutrients that are processed out of other kinds of bread.
