Is Sourdough gluten free? The short answer is NO. However, through the long, slow fermentation methods we teach, gluten levels are significantly reduced and acceptable ppm levels for most people who are gluten free. It is very ESSENTIAL to use the long, slow fermentation methods we teach to ensure sourdough bread is safe for those sensitive to gluten.
Do you have any information on the health benefits of sourdough bread?
*I like that this article reminds you that sourdough is still bread - moderation is the key.
