We are certified by the Irish Organic Association and undergo regular inspections to ensure our cultures, ingredients used and food safety management systems are up to the highest possible standard (IOA License No: 7812).
Why is it so unique?
The answer is because of the special starter – a mixture of a unique local strain of bacteria called L. sanfranciscensis.
This culture originates from San Francisco, a city well-known for it’s amazing sourdough bread.
Local bakers, including Boudin founded in 1849, swore that no one could reproduce it outside a 50-mile radius of the city – thus adding to its allure. The San Francisco foggy climate cultivated this specific type of yeast, which scientists have now identified in a number of places around the world. However the strain of bacteria is still named after San Francisco, where it was first discovered.
Very Strong, extremely active and always fresh. It is over 150 years old!
Our Sourdough comes sourced from starter cultures that have been in use for over a century. A mature, well aged sourdough starter has a much stronger and distinctive sourdough flavour than one recently started from scratch. We have worked hard to obtain the very best sourdough from across the world. We feed our starter cultures twice a day; ensuring that what you purchase from us is a very active, starter culture.
Authentic sourdough bread can only be made by using real sourdough starter cultures and not from any kind of packet or powder! Our cultures are 100% live and are a viable colony so from just one purchase you will be able to produce sourdough for the rest of your life!
For home use you should keep it in the fridge and feed it only once a week. It is remarkably resilient and will live forever if taken care of properly.
