Blog-Post_12-2020_EN

We want to end this year with a special post. After more than 12 publications where the elaboration of Healthy Bread with Sourdough has been defended, where different points of view have been shared, always with the support of scientific arguments and paraphrasing great and renowned scientists. Richemont defends and supports bread making with Sourdough as a commitment made to defend Healthy Bread and the consumer. For this reason, we wanted to end this year with this interview with such a special and beloved character as Karl De Smedt.

Blog-Post_11-2020_EN

In previous articles we have discussed and explained the subject of the microbiota and its function in our organism. You can read more about it here. Today we want to go deeper into this topic with a summary of a new scientific publication that proves that cultured sourdough bread is a healthy, necessary and beneficial food for the body.

Why bread stopped having prominence and why it returns with force

Why bread stopped having prominence and why it returns with force

Welcome to the Richemont Blog. This Blog was born with the purpose of clarifying elementary concepts about bakery and pastry, to transmit and disseminate knowledge based on studies conducted both at the Richemont Fachschule in Lucerne, and local data and knowledge provided by the different Richemont Clubs distributed throughout Europe and South America.

We are open to topic proposals by the presidents of the different Richemont Clubs, the Club members and the students of the Richemont Craft School.
