Use of sourdough continues to extend beyond the traditional bread loaf format into categories including pizza, morning goods and sweet treats.

This article will examine the development of such products, and look at the benefits and challenges of adding sourdough to baked products other than bread.

Key topic areas will include:

  • What are the process and recipe challenges of using sourdough in non-bread products
  • Are particular styles of sourdough more suited to certain applications?
  • What impact can use of sourdough have on shelf life of non-bread products?
