About Sourdough Starter
This freeze-dried sourdough starter is made from the same starter we have been using at Sunrise Flour Mill for the past six years. Now, using freeze-dried technology, we are able to mail samples of this starter nationwide to help people start baking their own delicious and nutritious sourdough bread!
Like the well-known San Francisco Sourdough, every sourdough starter has a story, lore, or mythology about its origin. This sourdough strain originally came from Italy. It was brought to us by a friend who came across it while traveling in Bolivia. Her Italian friend in Bolivia told her the starter had been maintained for over 100 years and had some very unique characteristics.
Our friend shared some with us and insisted this was a special starter. We quickly discovered it was indeed special, and the rest is history!
What is Heritage wheat?
Heritage wheat was the predominant wheat grown in America up until the 1950’s. Many people find it more digestible than modern wheat. Its long deep root system allowed it to survive the Dust Bowl, and gave the Midwest its famous nickname “The a Bread Basket”. Heritage wheat was a staple in every household. The history of it can be tracked to biblical times and has been responsible for nourishing generations. It was grown before the introduction of intensive scientific plant breeding.This wheat is experiencing a resurgence.

Best Bread Ever Made
I’ve been making bread for years with standard white flour. After using Sunrise Flour I’m making the best bread ever. There is no comparison. No more cheap, highly refined white flour for me, only Sunrise! Thank you for making such amazing heritage flours.
Love of baking
I'm so excited to start baking making sour dough pizza crust. Always been a Huge fan of sour dough in any form . To receive this product as a gift is a true blessing. Thank you
This is the best sour dough starter I’ve ever used! Perfect amount of sourness! Absolutely delicious!
My first order
My first order, I purchased several items. Bread lame, sharp, extra blades, nice leather cover and easy to use. Flour is excellent, I ordered two bannetons, they are sturdy, the covers are sewn nicely, and they are excellent quality. I purchased the sour dough starter, the card that accompanies it is well written, easy to understand with step by step instructions to reconstitute the freeze dried starter. I am WELL pleased with everything!
Instructions are clear and concise. It is bubbly and will be used tomorrow to make my first loaves! Excited.
I haven't started it yet. But know I will love it. So far everything from this company I love, including recipes.
Worked like a charm
Works very well
I haven’t tried it yet but the instructions and sample are very good.
My starter did not make the move well so I was delighted to see this special offer. It will be ready to bake in two more days.
