When I first got into sourdough, I thought it just meant a type of bread.

But it’s really not—sourdough is a leavening agent, just like active dry yeast packets.

But unlike those yeast packets you buy at the grocery store, sourdough is wild, natural, and full of health benefits.

A vibrant sourdough starter is a simple mixture of flour and water, but under a microscope, you’ll find a whole community of wild yeasts and lactic acid bacteria that help baked goods rise.
