Aren't Carbs bad for you?
FALSE! Complex carbohydrates are a crucial part of a well-balanced diet.
While our name might be controversial, that's kinda the point! We are reclaiming carbs and showing that when you use simple organic ingredients and a little sourdough magic, you don't have to be afraid of carbs!
What is sourdough?
Sourdough uses naturally occurring yeast for fermentation. We cultivate the yeast that lives on the flour by "feeding" a mixture of flour and water. When you keep feeding this mixture, the yeast gets stronger and stronger and can eventually be used to help breads (or crackers) rise.
Our sourdough starter is called Levain "The Rock" Johnson and is 6 years old. We've fed him just about every day since we started thinking about launching this business.
What type of flour do you use?
We use organic all purpose and whole wheat flours from Quebec flour mills.
Are your Sourdough Crackers gluten free?
Since our Sourdough Crackers are made from wheat flour, they do include gluten and are not recommended for celiacs.
However, many people who find it sometimes hard to process gluten, find sourdough to be a great option. The naturally occurring yeast and bacteria break down carbohydrates resulting in a product that is more easy to digest.
Further, many people with gluten sensitivities can actually be reacting to any one of the dozens of additives normally in baked goods. We don't use any of those - just flour, oil, water, and salt!
