What is it? Sourdough is a dough of flour and water which has already started a fermentation by yeasts and lactic acid bacteria. Addition, then, to a mixture in place of the most widespread yeast, is able to do so to obtain leavened breads, pizzas and cakes leavened classic Italian.
It differs from the yeast to the variety of its flora, always different from a sourdough sourdough, able to make the bread taste more aromatic, complex and tasty and a much higher digestibility. The breads made with sourdough, also, will keep longer. The dough never dies: is kept alive by continuous refreshments, that mixes where you add more flour and water, and can therefore be used and reproduced (to be donated) no problems.
