Sourdough dates back to the origins of bread baking. The Egyptians discovered sourdough by chance in around 1700 BC: a natural process in which bacteria in the air cause fermentation creates a natural leavening agent.

The Egyptians discovered that if a mixture of wheat flour and water was left to stand it eventually started to ferment. When the fermented dough was baked it turned out to be much lighter and tastier than the bread baked with yeast that people were used to in those days. The sourdough bread also stayed moist for longer.
