Sourdough bread on the table
Why Sourdough Bread Aligns With A Gluten-Free Diet
Unless you're following a gluten-free diet because you have celiac or some wheat-related allergies, you can easily work sourdough bread into your diet since it's fermented.
Sourdough bread begins with a sourdough starter. The yeast and bacteria in that starter are allowed to feed on the sugars, carbohydrates, and proteins in flour over time.
Therefore, the bacteria pre-digests the gluten for you. When the bread goes into your body, those same bacteria make their way into your gut to further aid the digestion process.
As a result, those who are gluten-sensitive might find sourdough bread significantly easier to digest, though exactly how much easier depends on how long the bread has fermented.
