- Pure and Natural: Our Wholewheat sourdough starter culture contains no artificial additives or preservatives, ensuring you work with only the finest ingredients for your baked goods.
- Nutrient-Dense: Compared to conventional bread, sourdough offers a lower glycemic index and enhanced nutrient accessibility, thanks to the fermentation process. Lactobacillus bacteria present in sourdough produce enzymes like phytase, breaking down phytic acid and improving nutrient absorption.
- Beneficial Bacteria: Lactobacillus bacteria present in sourdough produce enzymes that break down phytic acid, making the bread easier to digest and enhancing nutrient absorption.

Additionally, the fermentation process breaks down phytic acid, enabling your body to access a variety of vitamins and nutrients, including iron, manganese, calcium, B vitamins, folate, zinc, potassium, and more.
