Sourdough bread is made from dough that contains lactic acid bacteria. This method has been used since ancient times to loosen and lighten the dough. Of course, today it is more common to use the so-called cultivated forms of yeast for baking, because they rise faster and there is more fuss with them. But today, more and more accusations are made against yeast. They are called harmful to the body, toxic and contributing to weight gain.
On the other hand, even nutritionists consider the leaven to be very useful and it is recommended to cook bread with its use. The tradition of sourdough cooking dates back to the beginning of baking in about 3700 BC. and according to legend it was on the territory of today's Switzerland. While the yeast we are accustomed to began to be produced about 150 years ago. Ancient bakers used the dough left the day before for fermentation, and we suggest you do it today. We made rye sourdough bread at home earlier, and now we just use it to bake rye sourdough bread in the oven. So let's start.
