Ingredient Snapshot: Puratos recently launched two new sourdough starters.
Sapore Adelia is a liquid, living wheat sourdough providing a creamy flavor profile with its origins in France. The French acquired this sourdough from the Greeks on their trading missions. Wheat sourdough is at the source of risen bread and can be used to produce many varieties of baked products like artisan-style breads. Sapore Adelia is therefore an excellent, base sourdough.
Sapore Oracolo is a liquid, living rye sourdough with its origins in France. According to the traditional French bread culture, grapes or bran were soaked in water, and then mixed with flour to start the ‘levain’ fermentation. The microorganisms naturally present on the grapes start the fermentation and promote the development of fruity flavors. Sapore Oracolo is based on this traditional fermentation.
Both Sapore Adelia and Sapore Oracolo are part of a new category of living sourdoughs. These living sourdoughs provide leavening, texture and flavor, similar to traditional sourdoughs. These living sourdoughs are ready-to-use for all bakers and bring convenience and consistency in bakeries making artisan-style products.
Puratos has been producing sourdough in the USA for the North-American region since 2007. Puratos is able to bring these new products to the market due to a recent investment to expand capacity and capabilities into its sourdough facility in Pennsauken, NJ. This investment and resulting products show Puratos’ commitment for innovation to answer consumer needs.
