Sourdough is made from the natural occurring yeast and lactic acid bacteria in flour. It is often also used to name breads made using the culture. Gluten free bread itself is a relatively new invention and sourdough starters that use gluten free flours are often tricky to produce. Our organic gluten free sourdough starter is based on brown rice flour.

Sourdough is made from the natural occurring yeast and lactic acid bacteria in flour. It is often also used to name breads made using the culture. Gluten free bread itself is a relatively new invention and sourdough starters that use gluten free flours are often tricky to produce. Our organic gluten free sourdough starter is based on brown rice flour. 

Baking delicious gluten free yeast breads isn’t as difficult as you may think. In fact, in many ways gluten free bread baking is easier and quicker than it is to bake a traditional bread with gluten. We use a recipe based on the Doves farm method using their gluten free white bread flour (please note this flour is not organic). You can find many recipes online for gluten free baking. Our organic gluten free sourdough starter is a new addition to our range and we are always trying to find better ways to use the starter. Please feel free to share with us your own experiences working with this starter!

3 Questions about Organic Gluten Free Sourdough Starter

  1. Jayne says:

    I purchased one gluten free and one British sourdough kit and managed to successfully make sourdough pizza bases from both , however the next day the retained starter from the gluten free batch developed a furry mould and went pinkish. I kept the two jars well apart during fermentation but did have milk kefir close to the gluten free jar , was that the cause for the mould? If I start another batch of gluten free sourdough can both sourdough starters be stored in the fridge together?

      Hi Jayne, can you send me an email at orders@freshlyfermented.co.uk and I will get this sorted for you. Thanks Lisa

  2. Jenny says:

    Shelf life 15 days? So you can’t feed it and keep it? Can you feed it any flour if so? What species of lactic acid producing bacteria are used? Thank you

    1. Lisa Hillyer says:

      Hi, these have an activate by date of 30 days. You can feed and keep it once it’s been activated and it will go on indefinitely as long as it’s fed regularly. We feed it organic rice flour and it is fine.
      Thanks Lisa

  3. JOHN STACEY says:

    I imagine I need to use brown rise flour to feed the starter but can I use regular gluten free flour in the bread? Or must I use brown rice flour in the bread also? Thank you, ❤🙏❤

    1. Lisa Hillyer says:

      Hi John, You would need to use gluten free bread flour to make the bread. Have you found our instructions here: https://freshlyfermented.co.uk/PDF/gluten-free-sourdough.pdf Thanks Lisa
