Sourdough Bread is Better!

Sourdough Bread is better for blood sugar control according to a Canadian research study.

Researchers from the University of Guelph, in Ontario, Canada, tested the affect of white sourdough, regular white bread, whole wheat bread and whole wheat bread with barley on a group of overweight people aged 50 to 60 years old.

“When the subjects ate the sourdough bread, they saw the least blood sugar and blood insulin response, which is a good thing," says Terry Graham, professor in the Guelph human health and nutritional services department.

I have my cultures hibernating for the summer, but they will come out in the fall, now I can feel better about the time I spend with it!
