Sourdough Starter

Sourdough is more alkaline than other bread, because of the fermentation process that kills off the anti-nutrient phytic acid. That means your body is able to absorb more of the minerals and vitamins naturally found in the bread. The fermentation process also releases antioxidants, increases folate levels, and the higher prebiotic levels make it easier to digest. It also breaks of gluten more than traditional yeast risers, making it easier on the stomach, and it has a lower glycemic index than regular bread, which means it is less likely to spike your blood sugar. With all that in mind, here is a great recipe for making your own sourdough bread, from our friends at the amazing Cultures For Health.
