DEFINING TASTES – PALETTE OF AROMAS

This diagram can help you to classify various unique aromatic notes of sourdough, making it easier for you to find the perfect match to create your desired recipe!

DISCOVER WHAT LIVENDO® HAS TO OFFER

We offer a comprehensive range of sourdough products which includes starters, live sourdoughs, and various sourdough ingredients.

STARTERS

 

Starters are used to obtain sourdough with the desired characteristics for baking through a careful choice of pure and carefully selected strains of yeast and bacteria. This helps to produce and determine the aroma found in breads. LIVENDO® starters help to simplify the process to produce a consistent sourdough compared to traditional methods.

SOURDOUGH INGREDIENTS

 

LIVENDO® has a good range of sourdough ingredients that can be incorporated into your mix directly to reproduce distinct aromatic properties similar to that produced by sourdoughs.

 

Available in liquid and powder forms, these ingredients can also be combined to obtain unique aromatic and visual profiles, suitable for sweet Asian breads or European style breads. It is also a simple and easy-to-use addition to your recipe!

LIVE SOURDOUGHS

 

Ready-to-use live sourdough enables you to prepare sourdough breads without the hassle of having to prepare it from scratch. Our live sourdoughs are produced from the natural fermentation of cereal flour obtained from organic farming. A healthy and time-saving addition to your recipe!
