Where Did Sourdough Come From?

Natasha Krajnc

The true origins of sourdough bread are super ancient.

The first recorded civilization to have made sourdough loaves was the Egyptians during  1500 BC.

Many assume that this form of bread baking was discovered purely by coincidence.

It’s thought that the Egyptians left out a mixture of flour and water by accident.

Some also assume that Egyptians accidentally mixed flour with beer and produced a light loaf of bread.

There are sourdough recipes that originate from 17th-century France, where they also used the same sourdough culture we know today!
