Sourdough Bread Day – No Fooling

Sourdough Bread Day - No Fooling

Did you know  the way sourdough bread is prepared helps improve its nutrition value?  The sourdough starter as it is called, pre-digeststarches, making the bread more easily digestible.

Because of this it lowers insulin response, thus improving glucose tolerance. The pre-digested starches helps protect Vitamin B-1 from the damage of the heat will the bread is being baked. The pre-digested starches also break down the gluten, resulting in a bread that gluten-sensitive people can eat.

The process also breaks down phytases which free up minerals for better absorption,  such as zinc, iron, magnesium, copper, and phosphorus.

Don’t be FOOLED into believing folic acid is better for you, as it is the synthetic form of folate, and folate is made in nature and is bio-available to the body.

One medium slice of sourdough has 95 micrograms of folate, which is 24% of the daily required amount needed for good health. Lack of folate in the diet would make you more susceptible to developing cancer, age-related vision loss, hearing loss, and heart disease.

So this April first (2015) enjoy a slice or two of sourdough bread, and We’re Not Fooling.
