What are Sourdough breads?
Bread has been a staple in the human diet for thousands of years. But for the last few decades, modern diets have villainized it with additives, commercial yeast and sugar.
Sourdough Bread is the oldest form of bread and was used at least as early as ancient Egypt. From a health standpoint, our bread dominates when compared to standard loaves in the market. The naturally occurring acids and long fermentation help to break down the proteins and gluten, making it more digestible and easy for the body to absorb. And it tastes darn good!
What are the health benefits of Sourdough breads?
Living Sourdough breads are more digestible than commercial breads and more nutritious too. Lactic acids make the vitamins and minerals in the flour more available to the body by helping neutralise the phytates in flour that would interfere with their absorption. The acids slow down the rate at which glucose is released into the blood-stream and lower the bread's glycaemic index (GI), so it doesn't cause undesirable spikes in insulin. They also render the gluten in flour more digestible and less likely to cause food intolerance.
What is Aquaponics Farming?
Aquaponics is the safest way of growing clean, fresh food. Even organically grown food can contain harmful chemicals due to soil and groundwater pollution. Aquaponics and hydroponics prevent contamination and are better than organic. It uses 95% less water and less land to grow crops, making it pure and clean for you and the planet earth.
At Living Food Company, we believe sustainability and transparency are the best metrics for all our products. And so, we are committed to providing you with products that give back, not only to the creators but to our environment!
