There are many health benefits in consuming sourdough breads.
1. Higher in Vitamins, Minerals and Antioxdants.
Sourdough naturally is rich in Vitamin B, Vitamin E and antioxidants, which these minerals and vitamins are lacked in white bread when the flour is refined. As sourdough is going through the slow fermentation process and this helps to improve the bio-availability of these nutrients,
2. It is easier to Digest
Some people find hard to digest the wheat flour and lead to bloat stomach and digestion problem due to the gluten in the wheat, rye and barley. Sourdough has less gluten, as the natural bacteria may make it easier to digest, and the fermentation process decreases the amount of gluten compare to the commercial yeast.
3. Good for Sugar Level control
Through the slow fermentation process, sourdough has higher fibre content also make it a good carbohydrate option for those with type 2 diabetes, by naturally decreasing the glycaemic response as a result of the increased fibre.
