Should I refrigerate Manouche's breads and baked products?
Our products have no added preservatives. Because of this, most have a shelf life of approximately 3 days. Refrigeration tends to dry out baked goods, which is why we recommend enjoying our products within 2 days of purchase. However, if you need to store your Manouche products you should store them in a cool place away from heat and sunlight. If you are not going to be eating your Manouche products within 2 days, you should freeze them upon purchase to keep them fresh.
What is sourdough?
Sourdough is a simple mixture of flour and water. It’s made by the naturally occurring interaction of Lactobacillus bacteria and airborne wild yeasts. These microorganisms ferment the flour water mixture, making it “sour” and creating air bubbles that make the dough rise.
Why use sourdough instead of commercial yeast?
It’s better for your body. The symbiotic interaction of Lactobacillus bacteria and wild yeast in sourdough breaks down more proteins and phytic acids than regular yeast. This fermentation process allows our bodies to better absorb the whole grain’s minerals. It also lowers the whole grain bread’s glycaemic index. The acids created by the sourdough cultures provide a natural preservative resulting in a soft, moist, and truly artisanal tasting loaf of bread.
