Kelowna’s latest bakery hopes to ferment its way to the top

Sprout Bread Shop brings its fermented sourdough to town

A new bakery in Kelowna is baking its bread, old world style.

New Zealand’s Peter van Boekhout has perfected his recipes over the past six years and is passionate about bringing bread back to three ingredients; flour, salt and water.

“Bread has been made with the same three ingredients for thousands of years, and it is only until recently that it was industrialized and that is where flavour and nutrition suffered. So my recipes are all about taking bread back to what it used to be and is better for you,” van Boekhout said.

Though the fermented sourdough will not officially be gluten-free, the fermentation process used by the Kiwi will be easy for those with an intolerance to enjoy, but not anyone that suffers from Celiac.

“People that have all kinds of problems with bread and past but when you give them a loaf of 36 hour fermented sourdough bread they are fine, because as a baker, I have given the bread the time it needs to break down the gluten to the point where it could technically be gluten free,” van Boekhout said.

The sourdough that will be coming out of Sprout Bread Shop’s ovens will contain less than 20 parts per million of gluten, so rejoice, gluten-free bread fans. However not all of the bread will be gluten intollerance friendly.

Sprout’s fermented sourdough will be ready for the kitchen table late July at 1295 Cannery Lane.
