Wheat germ is a real concentrate of nutrients such as aminoacids, fatty acids, mineral salts, B vitamins and tocopherols (vitamin E). The product, which contains wheat germ, make it possible to fill the numerous gaps in the Western diet, which is high in calories on the one hand, but poor in the nutritional principles essential for our well-being on the other. Unfortunately, this embryo is eliminated together with the outer casings during the refining process, thus depriving wheat flour of a large part of its precious load of fibres, vitamins, mineral salts and fatty acids.
To overcome this deficiency, Il Granaio delle Idee, thanks to its Laboratory, has created Active Sourdough with Wheat Germ which, unlike other Sourdough yeasts, does not require the addition of brewer's yeast as it completely replaces it, making it an ideal product for the increasing number of 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 stamps that enhance the flavor and aroma of the finished product.
