Eating plain white bread, day in and day out, is not a habit to boast of. If the oh-so-boring packaging and bland taste leave you asking for more from your daily bread, why don’t you go for the sourdough bread instead? We are preparing now excellent sourdough bread in Sofia.
This crusty bread is full of flavours that would have you salivating for more. It keeps well for ages without chemical additives and can whet your appetite satisfactorily too. However, the main reason for switching to this artisan form of bread is health. The sourdough bread is good for you, in more ways than one. Here are the reasons that are sure to convince you…
Sourdough bread contains more lactic acid than the standard white bread. This helps in easy absorption of the vitamins and minerals from the flour in the body.
The helpful bacteria in the sourdough yeast breaks down the starch, making it easily digestible.
The gluten, present in the flour, is also rendered more digestible by the bacteria.
“Where there’s no law, there’s no bread.” Benjamin Franklin
Thus, the sourdough bread is suitable for people with mild intolerance to gluten too.
Sourdough bread is a good regulator of blood glucose levels.
This bread was found to be a better blood glucose regulator in comparison to whole wheat, wheat-barley, and other healthier forms of bread.
A fair amount of acetic acid is also produced along with the lactic acid as the sourdough rises.
This inhibits the growth of molds, thereby keeping bread fresh for a long time.
However, the best reason to include the sourdough bread in your daily meals is its tangy, sour TASTE, which can only be described as awesome!
