GETTING BACK TO THE BASICS OF BREAD
SLOW MEETS DOUGH with Schoon Bread

All of this made SCHOON the obvious choice when we went looking for a better bread to use in Kauai kitchens. After a lot of chewing (and chewing it over) we finally settled on their sourdough. Sustainably farmed, stone-milled and made the traditional way using locally sourced grains and wheat, there’s love baked into every hand-shaped loaf.
Goes With Your Gut
This is going to get a little scientific, but here’s what makes sourdough the superior slice for sensitive stomachs:
- It’s easier to digest. Research says this could be because of its prebiotic content and probiotic-like properties. Prebiotics are non-digestible fibers that feed the beneficial bacteria in your gut. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria found in some foods and supplements.
- It’s more nutritious. Although it’s often made from the same flour as other kinds of bread, the natural fermentation process improves sourdough’s nutrition profile.
- It contains higher levels of folate and antioxidants than other breads.
- It’s lower phytate levels helps the body absorb the nutrients in it more easily.
- The slow fermentation method may also degrade gluten more than baker’s yeast.
Sourdough’s Little Secret: This crusty character may have a better effect on blood sugar and insulin levels than other types of bread, though the reason for this isn’t completely understood. Yet.
