04 Oct Raise Your Bread to the Next Level With Livendo®
With its tangy flavour, sourdough bread is an increasingly popular offering at cafes and bakeries across the region. Bakers use sourdough as a differentiating factor to give fresh appeal to conventional bread products.
You can find innovative sourdough-based versions of toasted breads, donuts, pizzas and even croissants. In fact, the versatility and appeal of sourdough have contributed to a significant increase in packaged sourdough products in recent years.
What Gives Sourdough its Premium Appeal?
Making sourdough from scratch can be time-consuming, including the regular refreshing of the sourdough starter to keep it active.
This traditional process and the unique flavours of sourdough give it a premium image among consumers, who perceive it as a more natural, healthier, and authentic alternative to white breads.
With 2 in 3 APAC* consumers willing to spend more on premium quality food**, it is no wonder that bakers are using sourdough to offer more premium and differentiated products.
