Health Benefits of Sourdough Cookies
But first, what is sourdough?
Our ancestors have been eating and enjoying sourdough, a nutritious food, as an essential part of their diet for over 6,000 years. Sourdough is made through sourdough fermentation, the process of fermenting grains with a probiotic culture.
Why are sourdough cookies gut healthy?
Sourdough, the ancient practice of fermenting grains with a probiotic culture, is an incredible tool that unlocks deep nutrition in the foods we love most. Sourdough cookies offer a plethora of benefits, thanks to their unique and natural fermentation process using sourdough starter. This slow and natural fermentation allows beneficial bacteria and wild yeast to work their magic, breaking down gluten and phytic acid, making the cookies easy to digest. As a result, nutrients like B vitamins, iron, and minerals become bio-available. The lower glycemic index of sourdough cookies ensures a steady and sustained release of energy (no energy crash!). But the goodness doesn’t end there – the fermentation process also synthesizes prebiotic fiber which promotes a healthy gut microbiome. All these benefits combined make sourdough cookies a delicious and gut healthy treat!
