Puratos launches new sourdough range based on natural fermentation


30 Oct 2017 --- Puratos has launched three new sourdough flavors based on natural fermentation, thanks to a recent investment to expand capacity and capabilities into its sourdough facility in Pennsauken, NJ. This investment and resulting products show Puratos’ commitment to innovation to answer consumer needs. 

Puratos has been producing sourdough in the USA for the North-American region since 2007. 
The new lines launched are:

  • 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 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. 
  • Softgrain Amber Grain Organic is a combination of grains and seeds, soaked and cooked in sourdough. This enables customers to make flavorful multigrain breads with extended freshness and better flavor. Softgrain has been available since 2010 in the USA market and is the answer to the markets need for organic products.

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. 
Softgrain Amber Grain Organic is the first of a series of Softgrain products that are organic certified. Softgrain Amber Grain Organic is a blend of oats, wheat, flax, sunflower and millet in a mild sourdough combined with the sweetness of brown sugar and molasses. It can be used in a variety of product like breads, rolls, baguettes, cookies and cakes.
