What makes sourdough bread so tasteful and unique is the complex flavor and texture. Sourdough bread is distinctive because the baker does not have to use any store-bought yeast. Commercial yeast is yeast that is store-bought, coming in small packages. Sourdough bread features a combination of yeast and bacteria that arises naturally from microorganisms in flour. The biggest variation between sourdough bread and the “regular” bread bought or baked today is the source of the yeast. The bacteria contained in the bread is what gives sourdough bread its characteristic sour flavor, while the yeast allows the bread to rise. The yeast and bacteria that is naturally found in flour are activated by mixing in water and leaving it in a warm environment. Frisco Baking Company takes no shortcuts when making our delicious sourdough bread. It spends 12 hours in the holding box before it is even created. While this old school method of bread takes time and effort, the final result is well worth it!
