We make our sourdough bread using only water, salt and flour. Our starter – the magical leavening ingredient that gets air into a loaf of bread – hosts a myriad of wild yeasts that make our bread tastier and easier to digest than breads that are made with fast-acting yeast. All of our breads are fermented for at least 16 hours, giving the yeasts time to pre-digest the flour. This process also allows for better nutrient retention when the bread is eaten; many individuals who have had issues with gluten sensitivities are able to eat sourdough breads.
The prebiotics and lactic acid contained in the bread also help extend its shelf life to up to 10 days – when stored properly.
Our viennoiserie takes up to 72 hours to make – an obsessive, detailed process. Our croissant doughs, just like our bread doughs, go through long fermentation periods, and are layered with a type of French butter that has a particularly high fat content, giving our pastries the perfect flake and crumb. We fill our pastries with the best seasonal ingredients we can get our hands on.
Buy and freeze Kora products to enjoy them whenever you want. Pre-slice bread and when ready to eat, place in the toaster or in the oven on low heat. Reheat pastries on a low setting in the oven.
How to take care of your sourdough
To eat fresh, store your Kora sourdough in the paper bag you received it in. Be sure that the end is rolled down to prevent too much air getting in and drying it out. We recommend moving it into a kitchen towel after three days.
All of our breads are leavened with sourdough and go through a period of cold fermentation that lasts for at least 16 hours. Each loaf contains only three ingredients: flour, salt and water.
Wheat Sourdough / ≈ 900g / 3,90
Our classic wheat sourdough is a blend of white and wholegrain flours, and has an open, light crumb. It’s an excellent accompaniment to soups.
Rye Sourdough / ≈ 750g / 3,50
Due to its lower gluten content, our rye is more dense than our wheat. This makes it perfect for sandwiches.
Oat Sourdough / ≈ 750g / 3,70
Oat, emmer and wheat flour. Oats are toasted and in butter, then cooked into a porridge and mixed in with emmer and wheat flour.
