Global Sourdough Market 2023
Sourdough is a natural leavening ingredient consisting of flour and water. Also known as a bread starter, sourdough plays a vital role in providing structure and taste to baked products. The microorganisms present within the sourdough, including wild yeasts and lactic bacteria, utilize the starch and minerals found in flour to ferment and increase the volume of bread. As a result of this fermentation process, organic molecules are produced, creating the distinct flavors associated with sourdough. The global sourdough market is expected to increase by USD 1.0 billion, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.65% from 2023 to 2029, according to the latest edition of the Global Sourdough Market Report.
