So, what is raugs?

Raugs is a traditional Latvian sourdough starter that has been used for centuries to make various baked goods, including bread, buns, and pastries. Made from a mixture of flour and water, raugs is left to ferment for several days until it becomes bubbly and tangy. This natural yeast culture adds depth of flavor and texture to bread and enhances its nutritional value by breaking down carbohydrates and gluten. The use of raugs embodies the Baltic culture's respect for nature and tradition, making it a sought-after ingredient for those seeking an authentic culinary experience.
