Unlike other sourdoughs, our Active Sourdough with Wheat Germ does not require the addition of brewer's yeast as it completely replaces it. This makes it an ideal product for the more and more people intolerant to fresh brewer's yeast. Suitable for all types of bread, focaccia, breadsticks, crackers, pizzas and leavened desserts, the Active Sourdough with Wheat Germ has, among its intrinsic characteristics, the ability to develop particular aromatic notes that enhance the flavor and aroma of the finished product.
Here is the recipe for making fragrant loaves with Active Sourdough and Wheat Germ.
