All About the Levain

Natasha Krajnc

Essentially,  levain is a type of sourdough starter.

Levain is made from wild yeast and bacteria that thrive in your kitchen, feeding off the flour and water in your batter.

Levain is a leavening agent made from flour and water, used for baking bread. 

It’s a larger, younger version of your sourdough starter.

You’ll know it’s working when your levain starts to bubble or ferment, regularly, all on its own

Levain and Sourdough Starter are the same thing!
