Food of the Day: Sourdough Bread

  • While San Fransisco may be popularly credited for sourdough (popular during the Gold Rush), Wikipedia shows us the origin of sourdough is Ancient Egypt.  
  • Most sourdough breads are made from all-purpose flour
  • The sourness of the bread comes from lactic acid
  •  A 'sourdough' is also a reference to an old-man in Alaska
  • A traditional German Pumpernickel bread would begin with a sourdough starter
