Real, naturally fermented sourdough is rare because it takes TIME and SKILL to make. It can take 24-36 hours to make some of our great breads. TASTE the difference!
When left to slowly ripen and ferment, the naturally occurring bacteria in the dough breaks down the wheat over time, making it easier for us to digest. This unhurried process creates a character UNIQUE to real sourdough with its DELICIOUS TASTE and DISTINCTIVE TEXTURE.

A study in pre-diabetic patients found that sourdough bread elicited significantly lower glucose and insulin levels than regular bread. Studies have found sourdough bread produces beneficial compounds: antioxidants; the cancer-preventive peptide lunasin; and anti-allergenic substances, some of which may help in the treatment of auto-immune diseases.
Leading Dietician and Health Coach, Sharon Curtain, said
“In my opinion, the best breads are Sourdough and Rye, because sourdough cultures help to reduce fructans – for those who feel they are intolerant – and Rye because it’s naturally high in prebiotic fibres.
For me a beautiful tasting piece of sourdough with high quality nutrient rich toppings like tomato, egg, avocado and feta is the perfect mix of good quality carbs, healthy fats and protein.”

Bread is ideal for sandwiches, toast, toasties or as a side with meals, such as soups. You can’t go paste sourdough toast with eggs or smashed avocado, or a use it to make a crunchy, flavoursome topping to pasta or vegetables for added texture.
Bread is best stored in paper, calico or perforated cellophane in a cool, dry place. When bread is enclosed and not able to breath, the crust becomes damp and mould can develop. You can keep our bread in our environmentally friendly bags for days. Or store it in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer then enjoy it toasted.
