So, what is levadura natural?

Levadura natural, also known as sourdough starter, is a traditional ingredient used in breadmaking. It is a mixture of flour and water that has been naturally fermented by wild yeast and bacteria, resulting in a complex and tangy flavor. Unlike commercial yeast, which only contains one strain of yeast, natural yeast contains a diverse community of microorganisms that contribute to the flavor and texture of the bread. Bakers who use natural yeast often prize it for its ability to create bread with a crispy crust and an airy crumb. Because it takes several days to cultivate a sourdough starter, natural yeast breadmaking is a labor of love and a time-honored tradition.
