Sourdough is a healthy alternative to conventional yeasted breads with many nutritional benefits. Sourdough is the traditional method of bread making that dates back over 5000 years to Ancient Egypt.

This age old process of leavening uses friendly cultures in synergy that rise the bread and give it a unique sour flavour. These friendly cultures also pre-digest the gluten content of the grain, thus improving its digestibility.

Ancient 120 year old German Organic Sourdough Culture (30g) made with Australian Certified Organic Flour by Health Kultcha.

Up until the time the first commercial yeast was produced, all bread was made using sourdough methods. Traditionally most families had a sourdough culture and many were passed down from generation to generation. Very few survive to this day. These rare and mature cultures improve with age into a highly active state.

This German Sourdough Culture is extremely active and is great for producing a fluffy loaf of bread or pizza base with a mild sour flavour.

Health Kultcha uses quality water to make this culture. Our water has been passed through a reverse osmosis water filter, then remineralised, ionised and finally energised using Grander Technology.

If cared for correctly this culture can last indefinitely.

Unopened: Below 30°C out of direct sunlight in a cool, dark, dry place.
Opened: In a sterilised 1L glass jar with the lid on loosely and refrigerate. Read instructions in the box for more information.

Note: If storing for more than 2 months without using, stir in ½ cup flour and ½ cup of water every month to keep it healthy.

Origin: Made in Australia using German cultures and Australian flour. Health Kultcha's Sourdough Culture is Australian made and owned.
Sourdough Bread recipe:
¾ cup of Activated Culture
1½ cups of filtered water (warmed to body temperature)
1-2 teaspoons Celtic Sea Salt
4 cups of Wholemeal Spelt/Rye/Khorasan Flour

1. Mix culture, water and salt into a large bowl.
2. Stir in 3 cups of flour with a wooden spoon until smooth and stretchy - about 10 minutes.
3. Mix in the remaining cup of flour until it is too stiff to stir by hand. Turn onto a floured surface.
4. Knead the dough with the remaining flour until it is completely mixed in.
5. Place dough into a 340g greased bread tin.
6. Proof in a warm place at 29-35°C for 2-4 hours until the dough rises just past the top of the tin.
7. Place in a preheated oven at 180°C for 1 hour then turn onto a wire rack to cool.
8. Enjoy hot homemade sourdough bread :) !
