Introducing the Sourdough Recipe Guide!
What’s so special about Sourdough?
One of the foremost types of dough with naturally occurring yeast is sourdough. Known for its sour taste, sourdough has been around since the ancient times, when it was used by the Egyptians as long ago as 1500 BC. Over the years, the practice of cultivating yeast led to a decrease in the popularity of sourdough but that didn’t take away for its unique taste and health benefits.
In fact, it was and remains one of the healthiest types of dough you can use. Also, there are some great recipes that you can use sourdough in to enjoy its taste and natural goodness. In this eBook, you will get to learn what sourdough is, the health benefits it delivers to you and the considerations you have to make when cooking with it.
What exactly is Sourdough Bread?
Sourdough is produced by using a mixture of various elements. At the core are lactobacilli and wild yeasts that are leavened naturally. This happens after a mixture of flour and water has been made and left for fermentation. It is the lactobacilli contained in the sourdough which makes it sour. It lends the dough a tangy and sour flavor which sets it apart from the rest of the dough types available.
What are some of the health benefits of Sourdough bread?
Sourdough contains many essential vitamins and nutrients including:
- Selenium – assists with thyroid gland functioning and fights free radicals in your body.
- Manganese – aids in maintaining appropriate blood sugar levels.
- Thiamine – aids in strengthening your immune system and reduces risks of heart disease.
- Folic Acid – aids in preserving your hearing and heart health.
Did you know Sourdough bread is Gluten Free?
People suffering from celiac disease, which makes them gluten intolerant, can also consume sourdough without risk. Gluten is one of the key components that improve the taste of dough. Its absence is a reason why people generally avoid using dough and bread altogether.
Sourdough compensates for the lack of gluten by offering you a better taste and feel. Particularly when talking about sourdough bread, you won’t even realize that there is no gluten in it. Moreover, sourdough also inhibits the proteins contained in gluten that are chiefly responsible for causing health problems for gluten-sensitive people
