Improved Digestibility

Sourdough's unique fermentation process involves natural lactic acid bacteria and wild yeast. This process breaks down complex carbohydrates and gluten, making the bread easier to digest. Scientific studies have shown that the fermentation process pre-digests the starches, leading to a lower glycemic index and easier assimilation of nutrients

Gut Health

The lactic acid bacteria in sourdough act as probiotics, which can help support a healthy gut microbiome. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that aid in digestion, boost the immune system, and maintain gut health. Consuming sourdough regularly can help maintain a balanced gut flora, which is essential for overall digestive health.

Reduced Gluten Sentitivity

For individuals with non-celiac gluten sensitivity, sourdough bread can be a more tolerable option. The fermentation process breaks down a significant amount of gluten, which can reduce symptoms of gluten sensitivity. This doesn't make sourdough suitable for those with celiac disease, but it can be a better alternative for those with milder sensitivities.
